Professor Giuseppe CARDILE
Objectives The course aims to provide the knowledge of the geotechnical problems related to the soil and rock improvement. The acquisition of such knowledge and ability will be through attendance of theoretical and practical lessons and using advanced texts.
The student will be able to apply knowledge on ground improvement techniques in order to deal with the design problems in competent and professional manner.
The acquisition of such knowledge and ability will be through attendance of theoretical and practical lessons and using advanced texts.
The student will be able to describe and solve problems that require an interdisciplinary approach in geotechnical engineering. He will be able to transfer his acquired knowledge, expressing opinions and providing design solutions to both specialist and non-specialist; he must be able to produce technical reports on the activities, presenting the results; he must be able to work well in the design and management workgroups.
Programme The first part of the course introduces the principles of rock engineering theory and practice. In particular, the lectures introduce concept of rock discontinuity orientation, stereographic projections, selection of appropriate failure criteria, concepts and application of rock mass classification schemes, types of failure, processing and interpretation of structural geology data for the purpose of stability analysis of rock slopes. Analytical procedures are presented for simple failure geometries for plane failure, wedge failure and toppling, including the use of methods for identification, analysis and improvement of potential failure geometries.
The second part of the course cover important design and construction aspects associated with a range of soil improvement techniques including: preloading, vertical drains, compaction, vibroflotation, stone columns, geosynthetics engineering (classification, functions and applications of the geosynthetics; mechanisms and concepts of reinforced earth; geosynthetic-reinforced soil retaining walls and slopes; geosynthetic reinforced embankments on soft clay foundations). Each technique is dealt in a way referring principle, state of the art and cases history.
