Inhoud
This is a part of Module 5, Safety and Risk in Deltas of the Bachelor Civil Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module.

The main aim of the course is to contribute to subject-specific knowledge within the Civil Engineering programme. It is an introductory course.
Topics of the course include the description of water flow in soils, the soil response to axial and shear loads, the use of these knowledge to assess the stability of earth embankments.
The course consists of lectures, tutorials and a self-study. Tutorials are scheduled as follow-up of the lectures and will focus on the application of the lecture material by solving exercises. The study-load of the course is 2 ECTS.
The course is finalized with a written exam. Students can gain a bonus point by successfully solving an assignment based on virtual laboratory tests and related data analysis.
