Course Description & Objectives: 

This course is designed to give an advanced thorough theoretical background to the different aspects encountered in geotechnical design for example earth pressure analyses, bearing capacity theories, assessments of settlements and displacements and so on.                                                                                                                                                                                              Objectives:

  • To introduce critical thinking in the analysis and design of geotechnical systems
  • To lay a firm theoretical background necessary in the design of geotechnical systems
  • To introduce the theory  of stress path in the Geotechnical design
Learning Outcomes: 

On completing the course the student should be able to:

  • Determine the appropriate type of soil shear strength to be used for analysis and design of geotechnical structures (e.g slope, foundations, earth retaining structures etc.)
  • Evaluate effects of submergence, partial draining boundaries, time-dependent loading and radial drainage on the consolidation properties of soil as well as time-rates of consolidation of compressible soils for a variety of engineering problems
