Course Aims
Forces acting to the soil structures become different during earthquakes relating to the soil conditions, so design and consructions methods change. Taking precautions and soil improving are necessary for reducing damages in liquefiable and weak soil areas.

Course Goals
 
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
1) Become conscious against earthquakes and take into consideration earthquakes in the projects.
2) Realize soil loss during earthquake
3) Take precautions and develop appropriate projects in the seismic risc areas
Course Contents
Introduction-Earthquakes-Seismic risk and damages-Characteristics of stress-Strain and shear resistance-Dynamic soil tests-Soil amplification-Soil liquefaction-Evaluation methods of soil liquefaction-Precautions against liquifiable soils-Foundation design in seismic risk areas-Slope stability in seismic risk areas-Behaviour of retaining walls duing earthquakes-Numerical methods in the geotechnical earthquake engineering-Presentings homeworks.

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
