GEOTECHNICAL PROBLEMS IN BUILT ENVIRONMENT
The aim of the course is to analyse some of the main aspects related to soil-structure interaction phenomena occurring in built environment. Since the focus is on existing buildings, after a first part which deals with foundation types and methods used in practice for calculating settlements and bearing capacity, the problems of major concern, produced by external causes, both natural (e.g. slope movements, ground water oscillations, subsidence, etc.) and anthropogenic (e.g. deep excavations, surcharges, etc.), are detailed and studied in depth. The course also supplies to the students knowledge and skill on design guidelines and methods for possible intervention techniques on the foundation-soil system such as underpinning, reinforcement and ground improvement.
