|Semester||Spring Semester 2021|
|Lecturers||I. Anastasopoulos, A. Marin, T. M. Weber|
|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Language of instruction||English|
|Abstract||Basic knowledge to explore soil dynamic problems, introduction into geotechnical earthquake engineering and solve simple problems|
|Objective||Goal 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.|
|Content||Basics 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.
