This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for analyzing the static stability of slopes of earth and rock-fill dams, slopes of other types of embankments, excavated slopes, and natural slopes in soil and soft rock.
Slope stability criteria are presented for strength tests, analysis conditions, and factors of safety. The criteria are intended to be used with methods of stability analysis that satisfy all conditions of equilibrium. Methods that do not satisfy all conditions of equilibrium may involve significant inaccuracies and should be used only under the restricted conditions described herein.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical and structural engineers, as well as design and construction personnel working on projects involving slope stability analysis.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Aspects applicable to all load conditions
- Analyses of stability during and at the end of construction
- Analyses of steady-state seepage conditions
- Analyses of sudden drawdown stability
- Analysis of stability during earthquakes
- Design criteria for existing and new embankments
- Design criteria of other slopes
- Presentation of various types of analysis and results
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapters 1 through 4 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-1902, "Slope Stability".
