ENG432 Advanced Soil Mechanics

Without solid foundations, all built structures are in danger of collapse. This practical course uses a systems design cycle approach to initially inspect and test soil properties. Based on these results, you learn how to design, construct, test and assess the performance of structures within and upon the soil. It is a problem-based learning course where you work individually and in groups to self-direct your learning. Over a semester you conduct a field-based geotechnical project for a ‘client’ to whom you report progress. The project is complemented by laboratory testing and theory.
