Geotechnical Engineering - CIVE60011
- 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.
Current Developments in Geotechnical Engineering - CIVE70029
This module comprises a series of lectures given by Industry to our MSc students in the Spring Term.
Experts from industry share their hands-on experience and present prominent projects from all over the world.â¯
A wide variety of subjects is covered, including Site investigation and Geophysics, Environmental Geotechnics, Engineering Seismology and application of numerical methods on practical design problems.
Most of the visiting lectures are given by representatives of companies forming the MSc industrial bursary panel (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/geotechnics/about-us/msc-industrial-bursary-scheme/).
