CEE 6514 : DYNAMICS SOIL AND FOUNDATIONS
Course Description :

Principles of the dynamics of soils and foundations. Seismic waves, Non-linear dynamic soil behavior and vibrations. Dynamic-soil-structure interaction. Impedance functions and machine foundation design. Pre: CEE 5584 (3H, 3C)

Specific Course Objectives :
  • Determine dynamic soil properties.
  • Interpret the dynamic response of soil subjected to seismic waves and external forces.
  • Evaluate the response of single-degree-of-freedom and coupled, multi-degree-of-freedom linear elastic oscillators.
  • Determine the impedance functions for dynamic-soil-structure-interaction foundation analyses.
  • Computer the dynamic response and design shallow and embedded machine foundations.
