Yun Zhou, Ph.D., PE
Fill and cut earth slopes are indispensable in accommodating elevation changes for ground surface structures. To assure stable grounds for those structures, slopes themselves must be stable enough with required safety margins.
This course, as a part of the Geotechnical Engineering Series, covers basic theories, engineering evaluations, and practical approaches for design and mitigation of earth slopes.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
