Summary

 

Laboratory and Field Techniques - CIVE97079

Aims

  • To be able to understand the techniques used to characterise soil properties and quantify the mechanical behaviour of soils.

Role

Course Leader

Geotechnics - CIVE96011

Aims

  • To introduce students to slope stability analysis, foundation design and retaining wall design. Firstly the theoretical basis of geotechnical design will be introduced.
  • Then, also drawing on the material covered in the CI1-150 and CI2-250, the student will develop the ability to assess slope stability and design retaining walls and foundations for realistic situations. The concept of factor of safety, as applied in geotechnical engineering, will be introduced.
  • Reference will also be made to limiting soil-structure deformations to acceptable levels.

Role
