The purpose of the course is to examine the main problems of geotechnical engineering, with reference to natural and anthropic risks. The course focuses on the design of suitable countermeasures aimed at limiting/preventing risk. During the course, the topics indicated in the syllabus will be covered.In-depth studies will also be carried out through possible seminars by external speakers and possible technical visits.
The course consists of theoretical and application lessons.
