The course is intended to explain hydrogeological processes occurring around underground structures and to provide tools to solve the most common problems associated with stability of such structures. Some bench-scale physical experiments will be used to familiarize the students with the theoretical concepts through a practical approach.
The course will cover topics related to groundwater hydrology and geotechnical engineering:
Some applications related to the topics taught during the course include:
This master-level course deals with the groundwater effects on soil stability and underground structures.
