Soil mechanics

The use of problem-based and project-based learning is beneficial. The teaching-learning process requires the development of a critical, objective, and rational mind. This paper analyzes methodological experiments from the teaching-learning process carried out in the geotechnical area of the civil engineering program at three universities in the state o...

The study and understanding of the concepts related to critical state soil mechanics is relatively recent in Brazil, especially among practicing geotechnical engineers in the mining industry, where simpler solutions were traditionally adopted. This raises the necessity to develop studies capable of promoting discussions about the benefits of the approac...

The need to develop several students’ competencies is one of the leading challenges for Engineering instructors in undergraduate courses. It has been quite exhausting in many cases, mainly due to the lack of professors’ expertise in engineering education. Case studies may provide examples and help develop professors’ abilit...

The important role of the critical state theory in the modern soil mechanics is undeniable. It is true that the number of soil mechanics courses that not cover this subject is progressively decreasing. However, when the critical state theory is introduced, this topic cannot be seen as a simple extension of the classic soil mechanics. On the contrary, it...
