Geotechnical Natural Hazards Mitigation



Natural hazards and role of geotechnical engineering. Field survey technics for reconnaissance. Evaluation of laboratory experimental data and prototype modeling. Theoretical soil behaviors under various loads. Case histories – landslides, soil liquefactions. Reliability concepts. Risk-based design. Soil-structure system performance. Ground improvement for hazard mitigation. Infrastructure investment, sustainable design. The course will use numerical analysis tools to model soil responses under natural disasters.
