Prior knowledge of soil mechanics and/or engineering geology is recommended; however, any interested learner may attend the course.
The course starts with an introduction to site conditions requiring ground modification and soil Improvement. Mechanical modification will cover shallow and deep compaction and properties of compacted soils. Hydraulic modification shall present dewatering, guidelines for design of wells, and preloading. Grouting at depth will be discussed to cover categories and materials of grouting. The course includes solved examples and exercises for enhanced understanding.
Online support will be available throughout during the course.
The course is presented through video tutorials and multimedia content within the Moodle virtual platform, with exercises like tests and practical cases.
