Analysis, design and construction of various earth structures, encompass virtually every aspect of geotechnical engineering. Topics for this course include embankments, geosynthetic reinforced steep slopes and retaining walls, earth and mine tailings dams, deep excavations and tunnels. The role of instrumentation to ensure the safety of earth structures and to determine their performance during their service life is also presented. Application of key concepts is emphasized during hands-on computer sessions based on the state-of-the-art geotechnical software.
