Analysis and Design of Earth Retaining Structures
After attending this course, you will be able to:
- Use your acquired knowledge and skills gained on designing rigid retaining walls
- Implement requirements, procedures and techniques for safe, effective and efficient design of different retaining systems
- Practice design and construction of retaining structures
This course provides practical training on design and construction of rigid retaining walls. The course will review the related soil mechanics knowledge and show how to apply soil mechanics concepts to retaining walls and slope stabilization. Design methods will be covered for different earth supporting systems, including gravity walls, cantilever walls, and geosynthetic walls. The design examples are illustrated and will show you how to apply the theory into practice.
- Review of soil mechanics
- Site investigation process for retaining structures
- Lateral earth pressures
- Rigid retaining walls stability, capacity and settlement
- Slope stability analysis of retaining structures
