This is a five-hour, comprehensive course on geotechnical design of rigid walls, including calculation of lateral earth pressures and wall stability calculations. The course covers the soil properties needed, and active, passive and at-rest pressure calculations. Sliding, overturning, rotation, and bearing capacity are calculated with a review of settlement. The effects of water, backfill loads, and seismic forces on lateral earth pressures are included. Drainage design for walls, geotechnical construction advice and an overview of mechanically stabilized earth walls complete the course.
