Description

This free online course introduces you to the background, scope and trends of Environmental Geomechanics. You will learn about the various Geometric Modelling Techniques for the safe transportation and disposal of wastes and the philosophical practices that are used to deal with the problems associated with the underground environment. This course is arranged systematically and presented clearly so you will easily be able to understand the given concepts.

Next, the course will explain the methods of cleaning the contaminated sites and the prospects of Modelling the various Environmental Situations using Geomechanics. The course then demonstrates the significance of theory, lab tests, field tests, empirical relations and computer applications. The course emphasizes the resources that are required to exploit more energy and the disposal of radioactive and nuclear wastes. 

Finally, you will learn about the process of extracting the methane and the modelling of Gas Hydrate bearing sediments. The flaws in the conventional Geomechanics and the parameters for the classification of soils are also discussed. An Introduction to Environmental Geomechanics is an informative course which will interest students studying Civil Engineering, researchers in the Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering fields, or those who have an interest in these topics.
