CE 4150 - Soils and Foundations Design and Construction


3 Credit(s) | $36 Fee

This course is designed to introduce the basic concepts of geotechnical engineering and the correlation between soil mechanics and foundations design and construction. Geotechnical engineering will focus on geological formations of natural soils, the basics of soils through hands-on experience in the geotechnical laboratory, soil sampling, soil structure, grain size, classification, water influence, and the estimation of settlement or expansion. Soil mechanics deals with soil properties, groundwater, compaction, consolidation, permeability, seepage, shear strength, deformation behavior, and bearing capacity of soils. Whereas foundations cover the concepts of earth pressure and slope stability, structural design and construction of shallow and deep foundations, design of foundation for seismic forces.
