|METU Credit (Theoretical-Laboratory hours/week):||3(3-0)|
|Language of Instruction:||English|
|Level of Study:||Graduate|
|Course Coordinator:||Prof.Dr. BAHADIR SADIK BAKIR|
|Offered Semester:||Fall or Spring Semesters.|
Course ObjectiveThe objectives are to introduce the concept of soil plasticity and its numerical as well as analytical applications in the field of geotechnical engineering. The course will include of a number of assignments that will underline the significance of inelastic soil behavior in the field of geotechnical engineering through numerical analysis of practical cases with the finite element method.
Course ContentElastic and inelastic behavior with reference to soils and review of relevant material; yield criteria, simple elasto-plastic constitutive models, Coulomb criterion and modifications; plastic flow, strain hardening, Cambridge and other advanced soil models; collapse load theorems, lower and upper bound solutions; review of relevant finite element method procedures, formulation of seepage and consolidation; analytical and numerical applications in geotechnical engineering.
