Title: Advanced Geotechnical Engineering
Department: Civil Engineering
Author: Dr. B.V.S. Viswanadham
University: IIT Bombay
Type: WebLink
Abstract: The first course in soil mechanics generally introduces the fundamental concepts, principles to the undergraduate students of civil engineering.
This course Advanced Geotechnical Engineering goes deeper into the various aspects of soil mechanics along with bringing out the advanced theories and practical knowledge of geotechnical engineering.
Each topic will be developed in logical progression with up-to-date information with reference to recent developments.
The topics cover Soil formation; Soil structure; Clay mineralogy; Soil compaction, Consolidation, Shear strength, stability of slopes, loads on pipes.
Other topics which will be covered are Geotechnical Physical modeling methods; Application of centrifuge modeling and its relevance to geotechnical engineering; Centrifuge modeling of geotechnical structures.
The advanced course material on advanced geotechnical engineering will be very useful to undergraduate students, post-graduate students, researchers, teachers and practitioners.
A number of chosen problems will be solved to illustrate the concepts clearly.

Contents:
Soil formation; Soil structure; Clay mineralogy; Soil compaction; Effective stress; Flow of water through soils; Stresses in soil from surface loads;
Consolidation theories; 1-D and 3-D consolidation; Settlement of compressible soil layers; Methods for accelerating consolidation settlements;
Shear strength; Stress paths in p-q space; Triaxial behaviour, stress state and analysis of UC, UU, CU, CD, and other special tests, tress paths in triaxial and octahedral plane;
Short-term and Long-term stability analysis of slopes; Methods for stability analysis of slopes; Methods for enhancing stability of unstable slopes;
Loads on pipes; Marston s load theory for rigid and flexible pipes; Pipe floatation and Liquefaction;
Geotechnical Physical modeling methods; Application of centrifuge modeling and its relevance to geotechnical engineering; Centrifuge modeling of geotechnical structures.
