Summary

 

Strength and Deformation - CIVE97073

Aims

  • To provide deeper insight into important aspects of advanced soil behaviour, the understanding of which is necessary for contemporary design of geotechnical structures that may involve advanced numerical analysis.
  • To introduce the concept of constitutive modelling of soils, by explaining how the observed soil behaviour from laboratory and field experiments can be translated into mathematical formulations for use in advanced geotechnical analysis tools.

Role

Course Leader

Analysis and Constitutive Modelling - CIVE97078

Aims

  • To arm students with sufficient knowledge about finite element analysis so that they can assess and compare the capabilities of available commercial software, as well as judge the credibility of numerical results that they may obtain, or review, in the future.

Role

Course Leader

Soils and Engineering Geology - CIVE95010

Aims

To give students a broad understanding both of basic soil and rock mechanics and the behaviour of soils and rocks needed for engineering design, and an understanding of their geological histories and the geological hazards associated with them.

Role

Lecturer

Foundations - CIVE97076

Aims

  • To build on the material covered in the autumn term, particularly the strength and deformation of soils, and introduce students to the design of shallow and deep foundations.
  • To review the fundamentals of foundation analysis, in particular bearing capacity theory and foundation settlement analysis, and then to introduce students to the latest developments in foundation analysis and design.
