ASSIGNMENT BRIEF
Education Extinguishedcomes:
LO1. Appraise, test and earlieritise the geotechnical properties that are related to a absorbed trained problem
LO2. Conceptualise, analyse and evaluate the states of urgency and defecate in a befoul part among a geotechnical construction in dispose to touch the urgency/defecate paths coercion assessing its stationariness
LO3. Importantly test the contrariant mechanisms of cainterpretation movement
LO4. Collaborate and enact desk dissection coercion the stationariness of befoul arises
LO5. Everyot imported disposes and software packages to the breach of geotechnical problems
LO6. Present dissection and scheme cautions
Highlighted Comprehension:
1. This provision is an indivisible operation
2. Your repartee to this summative provision is rate 25% of the sum module trace
3. Computer discs to be solid to the operation in an obscure or meaning made sleeve adhered to the rear
4. Harvard Referencing dispose is mandatory. ALL embodied gathered from other origins and presented coercion duty in the provision must be aspectd
5. You are reminded of the develop system on deceased meeknesss of courseoperation and on any propose of plagiarism

Instruction:
You deficiency to download the GRETA (geotechnical software from Oasys Ltd.) made serviceable coercion scant scholar interpretation. You must demonstrate the interpretation of it in the dissection. It is advised that you interpret related byages in aspect to the arise stationariness dissection.
TASK 1
FIGURE 1 shows the cross-section of a designed route exasperating in a homogeneous clay befoul. Determine the element of insurance in vocable of powerful urgency using:
