EVE 4160 - Geotechnical Engineering with Laboratory

Credits: 4

Prerequisite(s): SSE 3135 OR EVE 3135 with grade of “C” or better, or permission of instructor

Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): SSE 3185 OR EVE 3185 with grade of “C” or better, or permission of instructor.

Description: Students in this course are introduced to the basic principles of soil behavior and their use in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. This course covers soil formation, soil characterization and classification, engineering properties of soil, compaction, fluid flow in soil, stresses in soil, consolidation and settlement, shear strength, and lateral earth pressures. Students are introduced to soil improvement and remediation strategies and the design of earth retaining structures. This course contains a laboratory that covers common geotechnical tests such as sieve analysis, Atterberg limits, hydraulic conductivity, and soil shear strength.
