1.322 Soil Behavior
Detailed study of soil properties with emphasis on interpretation of field and laboratory test data and their use in soft-ground construction engineering. Includes: consolidation and secondary compression; basic strength principles; stress-strain strength behavior of clays, emphasizing effects of sample disturbance, anisotropy, and strain rate; strength and compression of granular soils; and engineering properties of compacted soils. Some knowledge of field and laboratory testing assumed; 1.37 desirable.
This class has 1.361 as a prerequisite.
1.322 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by A. Whittle.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
