Advanced Geotechnical Engineering University of Tsukuba
This course describes complicated mechanical response of geomaterials as a mixture of solid grain, pore water and air, basic framework of the governing equation including typical constitutive models, and various numerical methods for engineering design.
This course provides advanced knowledge on soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering in order to understand the complicated mechanical behavior of geomaterials as a three phase material (soil grains, pore water and air). In particular, the course focuses on understanding numerical methods used in various geotechnical applications including some representative constitutive models of geomaterials.
This course is related to the DP competences (1) Ability to use knowledge, (2) Management ability, and (7) Specialized knowledge.
