ENCV14069  Geotechnics II

This course considers the models of the observed mechanical behaviour of soil and rock subjected to environmental moisture change effects, consolidation, and shearing. Students examine how these models are used to resolve commonly encountered soil and rock engineering problems related to the stability of soil and rock slopes, the stability of underground openings in rock, and the volumetric stability of deposits of clay soils subjected to changes in environmental moisture availability. Site investigation and geotechnical testing techniques used to characterise sites and soils for engineering purposes are studied.
