WORKSHOP ON UNSATURATED SOIL MECHANICS & SLOPE REMEDIAL MEASURES

July 13th, 2018

The aim of the workshop is to enchance the capabilities of practicing engineers when applying soil mechanics, analyzing data and solving problems involving unsaturated soils and slope failure. The workshop will be delivered by experts on unsaturated soils and slope remedial from Advance Geotecnical Engineering Laboratory, Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (AGL-UMY).

Unsaturated soils are widely encountered and need to be dealt with in many engineering problems, for example foundations, fills, embankments, pavements and slopes. In many cases true predictions of performance and true assesments of safety cannot be made without use of unsaturated soils mechanics. However, the use of unsaturated soil mechanics in practice is not routine. Many design and analysis techniques used are only applicable when soils are dry or fully saturated.
