ABSTRACT

The role of engineering-geological conditions in foundation engineering is very
important as they define the marginal conditions of the subsoil being capable of bearing
a building without possible negative effects on its statics. The characteristics related to
this are bearing capacity and settlement. If engineering-geological conditions are
evaluated for a particular area, the best tool to represent these is the engineeringgeological
zoning. The implemented study describes these in a study area located in the
Karvina Region in the Czech Republic.

Keywords: engineering-geological condition, foundation engineering, Czech Republic
