Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course you will:

  • Learn how stresses in earth masses are analyzed using two basic and different assumptions;

  • Learn how to employ Mohr’s circle if normal and shear stresses at one orientation on an element in an earth mass are known, to determine stresses at all other orientations;

  • Learn about the division of weight of overlying soil and water into effective stress and pore water pressure;

  • Learn how to divide applied load between pore pressure and effective stress as a function of the boundary conditions, the stress-strain properties, and the permeability of the stressed and surrounding soils;

  • Learn how to analyze stresses beneath structures and embankments for semi-infinite, elastic foundations;

  • Learn how to analyze layered or anisotropic foundations; and

  • Learn about the Westergaard analysis.

Intended Audience

This course is intended for civil and geotechnical engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting an introduction to the analysis of distribution of stresses in soil.

Benefit for Attendee

This course will give civil and geotechnical engineers and other design and construction professionals an introduction to analysis of stress conditions in soil at a point, beneath structures and embankments, shallow pipes and conduits, and deep underground openings such as tunnels.

Course Introduction

This is an introduction to methods for analysis of stress conditions in soils.

Course Summary

This course will give you guidance you can apply to the analysis of stress conditions in soil at a point, beneath structures and embankments, shallow pipes and conduits, and deep underground openings.

Thank you for your quick response.  I can take unlimited courses for up to one year?  That means I can apply some of the courses for this year’s  deadline, and take additional courses after that toward my next period deadline!
