Applied Geotechnics (2011) Page 1 of 1 CEE 4406: Applied Geotechnics, Elective Class Catalog Description Geotechnical principles for soil and rock mechanics are applied to the construction of civil engineering projects, including the evaluation of geomaterial properties, critical state soil mechanics, shallow foundations (footings and mats), piling and deep foundations, soil liquefaction, and ground modification techniques. Actual case studies are presented for the various sections to illustrate predictive methodologies and the inherent uncertainty involved in working with natural materials. Credit hours: 3-0-3.
