Advanced Foundation Engineering 61501

Dr. Isam Jardaneh An-Najah National University Faculty of Engineering

Room # 112170 Civil Engineering Department

First Semester 2010/2011 Prerequisites Foundation Engineering 61303

3 Credit Hours - Elective Course

Course Contents

This course begins with review to pile foundation, and then will continue with advanced topics of pile foundation, such as, uplift capacity, group of piles and lateral capacity of piles. The course continues with the subject braced excavations. Sheet pile walls will be then covered. Then foundation on difficult soils will be studied. Then if time permits introduction to reinforced earth and introduction to geotechnical earthquake engineering will be given. It includes computer applications for pile foundation, sheet pile walls, and other applications in time permits.

Course Objectives

The objectives of this course is to:

  1. Teach the students advanced topics in foundation engineering, such as special topics in pile foundation, braced cuts, sheet pile wall, building on difficult soils, and introduction to reinforced earth and geotechnical earthquake engineering.

  2. Enhance the basic knowledge of student in foundation engineering that was covered during the basic course of foundation engineering.

  3. Do some computer applications.
