Stresses and Pore Pressure in Soils – Solved Problems

Requirements

  • Basic properties of soils.

This course suits students of civil engineering disciplines studying the subject of stresses and pore pressure in soils.

The course presents a step-by-step solution to ten problems on the subject of stresses and pore pressure in soils. The problems covered are similar to those you can find in an assignment or exam. They cover the concepts you can come across in any problem on the subject. The knowledge you will gain from this series will help you tackle other problems of various degrees of difficulty. You need to have studied the theory first before watching the videos, since the course focuses on problem-solving only.

The problems cover the basics of the concept of stresses in soils, which you will also need to solve consolidation and shear strength problems. You will learn how to determine the total stress, pore pressure and effective stress within a soil element as well as the change in stresses within a soil due to external loading. Please watch the review video to get an idea about the course. The problems covered were selected from various textbooks, university assignments, and final exams. The degree of difficulties varies to ensure broad coverage of the subject.

Learning how to calculate the stresses will help you solve other problems on the subject of consolidation and shear strength.

Moreover, you can watch my other videos on consolidation and shear strength of soils (Udemy).
