Theoretical background for the calculation methods used in geotechnical engineering. Relevant stress fields based on the theory of plasticity, basic elements and combinations. Principles for performing short-hand calculations of settlements, slope stability, earth pressure and bearing capacity of foundations and piles. The course aims at creating understanding through classical analysing tools and hand calculations and through demonstrations of real design cases. Knowledge: The candidate should have knowledge of: - The basics of stress-fields in soil bodies, based on the theory of plasticity - How to derive design formulas for classical geotechnical problems like earth pressure and bearing capacity thus creating an understanding of the basis for the formulas in use - Analyzing slope stability and calculating the factor of safety as well as the average stress situation along the critical shear surface - How to use Stability Charts for quick introductory estimates of the stability of a slope and the average stress levels to concentrate on - Estimating settlements based on the oedometric constraint stiffness modulus. Skills: The candidate is able to: - Use design formulas, with confidence, being aware of the basic assumptions inherent. General competence: The candidate can: - Make estimates enabling her to frame the problems at hand and to see them in a greater engineering perspective - Communicate with other engineering professions in a design process facilitated through a simple platform describing complex geotechnical conditions.
Practical information about time and place
This course shall provide knowledge about health promotion, co-creation, and social innovation, as well as coping with stress. The course is designed to provide knowledge about the importance of the participation and influence of individuals and communities in respect of health. It will look more deeply at co-creation and social innovation as perspectives and strategies for service development, health promotion, and public health.
For some courses, the time and place for exams has not yet been decided. Information about these exams will be published as soon as it is available. This course is examined by the contents of a folder. The deadlines for submitting the different parts of the folder will be published in Fronter. You hand in the parts of the folder by using Fronter.
I've read through some stuff there and it all seems pretty tame so far. We have been married a mere 3. I might have went into this with different expectations on the whole now i know t simply have NO expectations and cherish every second i get with this new guy im interested in.
