OverviewSynopsis:The unit covers the aspects of geotechnical engineering at an intermediate level which includes: how water flows in soil (permeability and seepage), in-situ soil stresses, how the externally applied load distributed in soils, soil deformation, strength of soil, how to design a shallow foundation. It links to the work previously undertaken in Civil Engineering Materials and prepares you for Highways & Pavement Engineering, Advanced Geotechnical Engineering, Applications in CE Design & Construction, and the final semester Capstone project. It also exposes you to the areas of future work and study choice (e.g: Study area B options)
