Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • apply the basics of dynamics to problems of soil mechanics,
  • distinguish seismic waves,
  • describe methods of dynamic testing,
  • explicate methods of dynamic compaction,
  • explain systems for work integrated compaction control,
  • solve simple numeric examples.

Subject of course

Introduction to basics of Soil Dynamics.
The course focuses on applications, e.g. dynamic compaction with various techniques, dynamic compaction control methods, etc., the presentation of experimental methods and numerical simulations.
Basic theoretical knowledge on dynamics (SDOF, MDOF, calculation methods, etc.) is required.

Teaching methods

Intorduction to basics of soil dynamics and development of basic knowledge about seismic waves, dynamic testing and compaction as well as work integrated compaction control systems by means of examples of application and simple numeric examples.

Mode of examination

Written

Additional information

Lecture mode in winter semester 2023:
The course will be held in presence in the winter semester 2023. In case the holding of lectures in presence is no longer permitted due to the requirements of the Federal Government or the TU Wien, a change to an online-mode is carried out.

Examination mode in winter semester 2023:
Written exams will be held in presence. In case the holding of examinations in presence is no longer permitted due to the requirements of the Federal Government or the TU Wien, a change to "written online paper exams" is carried out. Examination duration and assessment scheme remain unaffected. In this context, please refer to the COVID-19 Distance Examination Regulations of the Research Unit of Ground Engineering, Soil and Rock Mechanics.
