In nearly all civil engineering projects, engineers need to analyse the behaviour of the ground and prevent failure in soils. This unit builds on the basic knowledge of soil mechanics obtained in previous units and expands it by introducing topics related to shear strength of soils which are essential in understanding failure in soils. Applications of the covered soil mechanics theories will be studied in analysis and design of retaining structures, slopes, and shallow and deep foundations.
To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve a mark of at least 40% in A1 and A2.
