Course Description

This course is designed to give an advanced thorough theoretical background to the different aspects encountered in geotechnical design for example earth pressure analyses, bearing capacity theories, assessments of settlements and displacements and so on.


  • To introduce critical thinking in the analysis and design of geotechnical systems
  • To lay a firm theoretical background necessary in the design of geotechnical systems
  • To introduce the theory¬† of stress path in the Geotechnical design
