Course Description for Applied Computational Geotechnics

CEG6018: Applied Computational Geotechnics
Prerequisites: CEG 3011C, CEG 3111
Description: This course covers the use of finite element computer methods to analyze complex geotechnical engineering problems. Course will focus on various problems in geotechnical engineering, including shallow foundations, retaining structures, slope stability, and tunnels. Emphasis will be placed on advantages of finite element based solution over traditional statics-elastic based solutions and the importance using the proper soil models.
