Civil engineers frequently face problems related with the design, building, maintenance, and eventual repair of structures for which the terrain is a component. The design of those structures is controlled by the strain and stresses in the soil and in the materials that compose the structures. The course presents a description of a wide variety of geotechnical structures analyzing their performance. The types of geotechnical structures analyzed and designed are: pavements, shallow and deep foundations, retaining walls, and an introduction to slope stability.
