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.
