By USACE Learning Center | Course: 35SCS01A | Control: 262

Click here to access trainingThis course is intended for engineers who want an introduction to the subject of Strength and Stability of Constructed Slopes, as well as for those who would like to review the subject for better understanding. It is not intended for individuals who have never had a basic course in soil mechanics. For many individuals the relevance of the material they studied in college often does not meet the practical applications to the problems encountered in designing and constructing stable slopes. This course summarizes the subject matter into the essential elements of shear strengths required in stability analysis of embankment dams, levees, and slopes in open cuts or natural ground. Students completing this course will be better able to select appropriate shear strength designs in various cases for which stability analyses need to be performed. This course complements and enhances the training in dam safety.
