Syllabus
Prerequisites: Geotechnics
Hydraulics
Target skills and knowledge: The course deals with some of the main geotechnical engineering applications in the environment and land protection. In particular, two topics are considered as the stability of natural and artificial slopes and the geotechnical aspects related to the design and construction of solid waste landfills.
Course unit contents: SLOPE STABILITY: Peak and residual shear strength. Infinite and limited height slopes. Classification of landslides. Landslides monitoring (inclinometers, piezometers, etc.). Static and dynamics conditions, Safety factors according to limit equilibrium methods. COMPACTION: theory, geotechnical properties and structure of compacted soils, field compaction equipment. In situ and laboratory permeability and shear tests on compacted samples.LANDFILL: Design concepts and construction layout. Top and bottom natural and syntetic barriers. Shear strength and compressibility of municipal and industrial solid waste. Slurry walls. GEOSYNTHETICS: designing with geotextiles, geogrids, geonets, geomembranes, geosynthetic clay liners etc.SOLID WASTE
