Computer Methods in Geotechnical Eng (CIVL5451)


Objectives and Outcomes 1. To introduce students to major computer modelling techniques used to solve boundary-value and initial-value problems in geotechnical engineering. 2. To develop students' skills at using computer modelling software to solve stress and flow problems in geomechanics. 3. To developed students ability at critically assessing assumptions behind computer models and critically evaluating the quality of numerical results.
