課程概述

The overall objective of this course is to introduce the types, and functions, of geosynthetics and their engineering applications. Specifically, this course focuses on the soil reinforcement and provide students the fundamentals and tools needed for design, analysis, and performance evaluation of geosynthetic-reinforced soil (GRS) structures including both walls and slopes. Class also discusses construction, monitoring, maintenance, case histories as well as current state-of-art applications of GRS structures against various natural disasters. 

課程目標
Upon completion of the course, the students should be able to:

•Identify the types, advantages and disadvantages of different earth retaining systems.
•Select the most technically appropriate and cost-effective type of earth retaining wall for the application from a thorough knowledge of available system.
•Quantify the lateral earth pressures within retaining earth structures.
•Be familiar with the types, functions, and engineering applications of geosynthetics.
•Evaluate the index, hydraulic, mechanical, and environmental properties of geosynthetics based on the standard test methods.
• Be knowledge of current US and Taiwan guidelines regarding the design of GRS structures.
•Complete the design of GRS structures using appropriate design methods, factors of safety, design charts and field verification methods.
•Master the design of GRS structures considering both external and internal stability using hand calculations as well as numerical tools.
•Learn the theory and assumption in various limit equilibrium methods for slope stability analyses of reinforced soil slopes.
