Course Description Course Content :
Introduction to geotechnical engineering. Site investigation and in-situ soil tests; soil borings, soil sampling, inspection pits, inspection boreholes, in-situ tests performed during boring tests, dynamic and static penetration tests, permeability tests, Vane and pressuremeter tests. Slope Stability; natural slope stability, slope failures, preventing landslides, slope stability analysis methods. Retaining structures; earth pressures, gravity retaining structures, dimensioning and principles for calculations. Lateral earth pressure, sheet piles, dimensioning and principles for calculations. Shallow foundations; bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundations, factors affecting the shallow foundations bearing capacity, formulae for bearing capacity, allowable bearing capacity, applications. Deep foundations; designing deep foundations, pile types, pile design, caissons, footings. Bearing capacity of deep foundations, static pile bearing capacity formula, dynamic pile formula, pile load tests and soil improvement; soil improvement methods, compaction methods.
