CE 6533:Advanced Soil Mechanics

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: CE 3701 or equivalent
After brief review of drained and undrained shear strength of soils under transitional triaxial compression testing, the advanced topics to be covered in shear strength will include modified Mohr-Coulomb diagrams, including p-q diagrams, stress paths, triaxial extension and triaxial compression tests, and drained and undrained failure at principle stress difference versus principal stress ratio. In consolidation, the components of settlement and the effect of submergence on ultimate consolidation settlement will be covered.
