1.364 Advanced Geotechnical Engineering (MIT)
1.364 examines site characterization and geotechnical aspects of the design and construction of foundation systems. Topics include: site investigation (with emphasis on in situ testing), shallow (footings and raftings) and deep (piles and caissons) foundations, excavation support systems, groundwater control, slope stability, soil improvement (compaction, soil reinforcement, etc.), and construction monitoring. 1.364 Advanced Geotechnical Engineering (MIT) course is a core requirement for the Geotechnical Master of Engineering program at MIT.
