Course Goals :
Course Aims : Foundations and their interaction with soil is very important on design procedure. The reality of ongoing design of foundations without required knowledge showed the importance of the subject after the 1999 earthquakes. In this course it is intended the engineers to have the ability to design shallow and deep foundations by using the right and reasonable way.
