Module overview

This module will introduce you to the analyses often used in the design of gravity, embedded and reinforced soil retaining walls, simple shallow and pile foundations, the assessment of slope stability and slope stabilisation schemes. It will build on the basic concepts of soil mechanics introduced in the second year module CENV2006, and provide a basis for geotechnical design within CENV3015 Design 3.
