AbstractFundamentals of soil mechanics including key processes: classification, site investigation, stresses and their distribution in soils, influence of groundwater in soils and on structures, piping, erosion and filters, stress-strain relationships, stress history, stiffness, strength, settlement calculations, consolidation, slope stability, mechanical compaction.
ObjectiveFundamentals in soil mechanics and geotechnics will be presented in order to:
* understand soil as a multi-phase hydro-mechanical system
* obtain parameters essential for classification and description of soil
* recognise key aspects of soil behaviour and the implications of this for obtaining and characterising the stress-strain response and deriving associated parameters (stiffness and strength).
ContentIntroduction, basic terms, classification, site investigation
Total and effective stresses, stress distribution in soils
Influence of groundwater in soil, water pressure on structures, hydraulic fracture (piping), erosion and filters
Stress-strain relationships, stress history, stiffness, strength, settlement calculations, time dependency, consolidation
Limit equilibrium, slope stability (infinite slope, slip circles, slip surfaces)
Mechanical compaction

101-0378-00LSoil Dynamics3 credits2GI. Anastasopoulos, A. Marin, M. Vassiliou, T. M. Weber
AbstractBasic knowledge to explore soil dynamic problems, introduction into geotechnical earthquake engineering and solve simple problems
ObjectiveGoal of the lecture is to achieve a basic knowledge of soil dynamics, to be able to solve simple problems and to specify the tasks for specialists for more complex problems in different fields involved.
ContentBasics of dynamics:
Differences between soil mechanics and soil dynamics. Repition of spring - mass - damping systems. Wave propagation in ideal and non ideal soil conditions.
Dynamical Soil Properties:
Constitutive Modelling of Soils, Soil parameter for different soil types. Soil liquefaction. Determination of soil parameters in field and laboratory investigation.
Applications: Vibration calculation and isolation, geotechnical earthquake engineering from seismic hazard site amplification towards aspects of design on foundations and geotechnical structures.
