CEE 5874 : COASTAL AND MARINE GEOTECHNICS
Course Description :

Geotechnical aspects of coastal and marine engineering. The coastal zone as a working environment. Geotechnical properties of beach and seafloor sediments, methods and processes for subaqueous and coastal site investigations, complementary techniques for investigation. In-situ survey strategies, planning and management.

Specific Course Objectives :
