Descripción del curso
The purpose of this course is to provide the learner with easy-to-understand introductions to the subjects of geotechnical engineering and soil mechanics. The level of the subjects covered are first year university level and will be easily followed by anyone studying, practicing, or simply interested in, civil engineering. No prior knowledge of geotechnical engineering is required. Following this course the learner will be equipped to take further study if they wish, to develop deeper knowledge and understanding of the various methods and procedures used in the design and construction of geotechnical structures such as foundations, retaining walls and cuttings and embankments. The course commences with an introduction to geotechnical engineering, illustrated by examples of the range of projects on which geotechnical engineers may be involved. An explanation of the geological processes that form soils follows, before we start to look properly at the subjects that form the basis of the subject of soil mechanics. Those subjects are well explained and complemented by many worked examples so that the learner can readily understand the material. Completion of the course will enable the learner to apply their knowledge to their needs, whether they are a student or a practitioner. On line support is available throughout the duration of the course. Limited places.
