Soil mechanics supplements

Type of module:
Compulsory elective module - consisting of soil mechanics supplements and soil mechanics laboratory practical course.

Course content:
Soil mechanics supplements: Time-dependent material and deformation behaviour of soils (consolidation of soils and soil creep); material laws for soils (deformation behaviour from linear-elastic to hypoplastic, shear strength, planning and interpretation of element tests); numerics in geotechnics (basics, selection of calculation sections and discretization of the model, simulation of construction stages and non-linear calculations); subsoil dynamics; model tests in geotechnics.

Student workload:
Attendance time:        28 hours
Independent study:   62 hours
