Overview

Please note, This instructor-led course has specific dates and times:
This course is held online over 2 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks)

After participating in the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand fundamentals of soil and rock mechanics and its application to slope stability engineering.
  • Define various methods of slope stabilization and identify appropriate application.
  • Conduct simple stability analyses of slopes.
  • Familiar with computer analysis methods and typical design practices.
  • Have a comprehensive understanding of principles of investigation and stabilization of slope failures.

Description

The objective of this course is to provide practitioners involved in slope stability design and construction with fundamentals and approach for slope stability design. Course material include stability concepts, engineering geology principles, ground water principles, soil testing and interpretations, slope stability concepts, stabilization methods, instrumentation and monitoring, and construction inspection.
