Advanced Soil Mechanics
About Course
This Advanced Soil Mechanics course intends to bridge the basic soil mechanics concepts with advanced topics related to stresses and soil strength.
In the process, it will help to reinforce the understanding gained during undergraduate learning. It would help to alleviate any misconceptions related to the stressstrain response and strength behavior of soils. Not all the concepts explained in this course are advanced, but attempts to add clarity to the knowledge gained at the undergraduate level. This course is ideal for the orientation of geotechnical engineering postgraduate students and final year undergraduate students to the higher realms of geomechanical characteristics of soils. The course will help appreciate the basic concepts of continuum mechanics, which is a prerequisite for research in geomechanics. Even though the name is advanced, it is introductory in nature when it deals with advanced topics. It may be noted that this course does not deal with the other soil characteristics, namely flow characteristics and compressibility.
Advanced Soil Mechanics INTENDED AUDIENCE: Undergraduate students in Civil Engineering, Postgraduate and Ph. D. students in geotechnical engineering
