ICYA-4510 Cimentaciones Avanzadas
Foundation analysis frequently faces complex problems in that land stresses and deformations are the result of the interaction between the soil and the structure in media whose properties can be random. This course will teach the student how to analyze foundation or containment structures, bearing in mind the variables of the terrain and the stochastic variables. We will study diverse problems of interaction between the land and a foundation: foundation slabs with individual or group piles under generalized loads, pile slab systems, excavations with panels or sheet piles. We will also study foundations on complex soils such as compressible soils or expansive or collapsible soils. The course will also look at numeric or physical modeling techniques using geotechnical centrifuges.
