- Learning Outcomes
- 1.Critically analyse concepts of wave theory, particularly in the context of earthquake effects on foundations, embankments, and retaining structures.
2.Critique the site effects on ground motions.
3.Evaluate how soils can liquefy, and carry out simple liquefaction related site evaluations.
4.Use software to solve problems related to the interaction of structure with soils.
