Course Objectives This course is an introduction to modeling and computing in Geotechnical Engineering, Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Geomechanics. The intention of the course is to provide students with state of the art analytical and computational methods for the analysis of complex Geo-Engineering problems. The objectives of the course are such that students acquire knowledge to analytically and numerically simulate various mechanical phenomena as observed in soil mechanics, foundation engineering and earthquake engineering. This will be achieved by developing a thorough understanding of the physics behind, providing numerical solutions to the boundary value problems and utilizing basic numerical methods. Computational techniques using the classical methods such as the Finite Element Method and Finite Difference Method will be discussed in details and applied to basic Geo-Engineering problems encountered in practice. Learning how to use some of the commercially available softwares listed below will be an additional outcome.
