Courses and Descriptions

CIVL-3021Foundation Design

This course covers the design and analysis of foundation systems to support buildings and retaining walls. Students will learn to evaluate shear strength of soil using the Mohr’s envelope and Coulomb’s equation, select soil strength required for foundation design, understand the concept of total and effective stress, vertical and horizontal stresses in a soil mass, determine of the consolidation characteristics of soils and conduct a slope stability analysis. Students will be able to apply foundation design principles to a variety of shallow and deep foundation systems and retaining walls using soil strength properties.
