CIV201 Soil Mechanics

All land-based structures are founded on soil or rock. You will learn about the composition of soils and their behaviour when subjected to forces or displacements. You will assess soil properties and behaviour, applying the relevant theory. This includes identifying and classifying rocks and soils and examining the stresses that exist within a soil mass, soil deformation under loading, and peculiarities of local soils. It is a practical problem-based learning course where you work individually and in groups to advance your skills and knowledge.
