GEOE 313 Geomechanics and Engineering Geology

GEOE 313  Geomechanics and Engineering Geology  Units: 4.00  

Application of geomechanical principles to rock characterization, engineering analysis and design problems related to surface and underground construction in rock and surface slope stability. Presentation and discussion of geomechanics theory, including stress, strain, strength of materials and post yield behaviour, and analysis tools with application to typical rock engineering problems and to case histories involving empirical, analytical and numerical solutions. Emphasis on the inherent variability of geomaterials at the lab and field scale and implications for design.
