CER 445 - Advanced Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering
(3 cr.) In this course, students extend what they learned in CER 340 Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering. The principal focus of the class is on foundation design (shallow and deep), but other topics introduced include slope stability, field testing, field instrumentation, designing braced excavations, designing piles and drilled shafts, designing flexible walls, designing earth retaining structures and designing earth structures using geosynthetics. Prerequisite: CER 340; Every Year, Spring
