CIVL 840 Advanced Soil Mechanics

CIVL 840  Advanced Soil Mechanics  Units: 3.00  

Current theories on the yielding and failure of normally consolidated and overconsolidated clays and granular materials are presented and discussed in lectures. The usefulness and limitations of critical state theory to predict soil behaviour is then evaluated against real soilbehaviour observed in triaxial tests. Additional advanced topics include: fracture, anisotropy, partial saturation, creep and cyclic loading.  A seminar project is usually undertaken in this course. Three term-hours, (every second year beginning 2005-2006).

The laboratories at Ellis Hall and the West Campus are well equipped for research studies in structures and rehabilitation, concrete, soils, geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, groundwater and hydrology, environmental engineering, water distribution systems and rivers, lakes and coastal engineering. A state of the art server room facilitates software modeling in all areas. In addition, researchers and students have access to the University’s High Performance Computing Virtual Laboratory and to facilities located in other University departments and at the Royal Military College of Canada. There are 2 workshops and an instrumentation shop to service all areas of research.
