ENGT 4140 - Soils and Foundation Design (3)

Basic principles of soil mechanics and foundation design and their application to civil engineering. Soils topics include the identification and classification of soils, permeability, soil strengths, drainage and frost action, compaction and stabilization, and evaluation of highway subgrades. Standard laboratory soil tests are performed to determine the physical and mechanical properties of soils. This knowledge is then applied to engineering designs such as excavation bracing, soil stabilization, geotextiles, spread footings, pile foundations, retaining walls, and earth retaining structures. Prerequisite(s): EASC 2100 . An additional fee is associated with this course. Not available for graduate credit.
