CE6405 SOIL MECHANICS SYLLABUS FOR 4TH SEM CIVIL REG 2013

ANNA UNIVERSITY CIVIL SYLLABUS
CE6405 SOIL MECHANICS SYLLABUS
4TH SEMESTER CIVIL SYLLABUS
REGULATION 2013
OBJECTIVES:
  • To impart knowledge on behavior and the performance of saturated soil. 
  • At the end of this course student attains adequate knowledge in assessing both physical and engineering behaviour of soils, mechanism of stress transfer in two-phase systems and stability analysis of slopes.
UNIT I SOIL CLASSIFICATION AND COMPACTION
Nature of soil – phase relationships – Soil description and classification for engineering purposes, their significance – Index properties of soils - BIS Classification system – Soil compaction – Theory, comparison of laboratory and field compaction methods – Factors influencing compaction behaviour of soils.

UNIT II SOIL WATER AND WATER FLOW
Soil water – static pressure in water - Effective stress concepts in soils – capillary stress – Permeability measurement in the laboratory and field pumping in pumping out tests – factors influencing permeability of soils – Seepage – introduction to flow nets – Simple problems.  sheet pile and weir).

UNIT III STRESS DISTRIBUTION AND SETTLEMENT
Stress distribution - soil media – Boussinesq theory - Use of Newmarks influence chart – Components of settlement –– immediate and consolidation settlement – Terzaghi‟s onedimensional consolidation theory – computation of rate of settlement. - √t and log t methods– e-log p relationship - Factors influencing compression behaviour of soils.

UNIT IV SHEAR STRENGTH
Shear strength of cohesive and cohesionless soils – Mohr – Coulomb failure theory –  measurement of shear strength, direct shear – Triaxial compression, UCC and Vane shear tests – Pore pressure parameters – cyclic mobility – Liquefaction.

UNIT V SLOPE STABILITY
Slope failure mechanisms – Types - infinite slopes – finite slopes – Total stress analysis for saturated clay – Fellenius method - Friction circle method – Use of stability number - slope protection measures.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:
Students have the ability to determine Index properties and classify the soil. They can also know to determine engineering properties through standard tests and empirical correction with index properties.
