Expand/collapse block Information for lesson "Soil Dynamics NPTEL CC-E"
Description: The basic course in soil mechanics/geotechnical engineering generally introduces the fundamental concepts, principles and applications of soil as engineering material with properties under static loading. This course on “Soil Dynamics” discusses about the behaviour and properties/response of soil as a material which is subjected to various types of dynamic or cyclic time-dependent loadings. Also the design and analysis for machine foundations come along with this course to consider the dynamic properties of both soil and foundation as combined mass. Behaviour of various geotechnical structures such as shallow and deep foundations, retaining structures, slopes, sub grade soil below railway, pavement, runway due to various types of time-dependent dynamic loading are discussed here along with the reference to design code provisions.
Resources: OpenCourseware from NPTEL (India), Sheridan College, MIT, UC Berkeley, Stanford & many other of the World's finest University's.
