Description

This inspiring course encourages students to solve geotechnical engineering problems using both traditional engineering solutions and the more versatile finite element solutions. This approach not only teaches the concepts but also provides means to gain more insight into geotechnical engineering applications that reinforce the concepts in a very profound manner.

The main prerequisite for this course would be an undergraduate-level soil mechanics course. An introductory finite element analysis course is recommended but not essential. General soil mechanics principles are presented for each online lecture, followed by traditional applications of these principles with longhand solutions, which are followed in turn by finite element solutions for the same applications, and then both solutions are compared. Further, more complex applications are presented and solved using the finite element method.

The course consist of nine sections, eight of which deal with traditional soil mechanics topics, including stresses in semi-infinite soil mass, consolidation, shear strength, shallow foundations, lateral earth pressure, deep foundations (piles), and seepage.
