1.37 Geotechnical Measurements and Exploration


Class Info

Application of testing principles to the measurement of fundamental aspects of soil behavior from classification to engineering properties. Emphasis on rigorous techniques to measure mechanical behavior under various boundary conditions. Exposure to error estimation, research devices, geotechnical field exploration, and in situ testing. Extensive laboratory experiments to explore geotechnical test equipment and techniques. Laboratory use of testing automation and electronic instrumentation. Experiments include data analysis, evaluation, and presentation.
