foundations, calculation of bearing capacity, soil-mechanik's studies, calculation of soil stresses, support of constructions
Course Content (Syllabus)
Introduction and general principles, elements of soil dynamics, properties, classification and control of soil strength, foundations of technical works, slopes stability,pavement construction and strength control. Enngineering characteristics of soils and soil testing-soil explorations. Design of foundations, embankmentsand cut slopes. Drainage for forest roads. Stresses in soils and pavements. Bearing capacity,shear failures. Stresses due to load, effect of tire pressure, combined stresses. Frost heave, loss of strength during frost melting. Protection of forest ecosystem due to prediction of embankment settlement.
