Course Description

Soil Mechanics is very fundamental subject, consisting of determination of various soil parameters theoretically and experimentally based on laws of mechanics. Any civil engineering structure needs strong and stable foundation which depends on proper understanding of soil behaviour, determination and interpretation of soil parameters, determination of stresses in soil. The design of any foundation system is based on understanding of soil parameters and its implication based on through interaction with type of structure.
