This course offers an in-depth exploration of the principles and practices of geotechnical engineering, tailored for students in architecture and construction engineering. It begins with an introduction to topographic surveys and map interpretation. Various rock types are then introduced, followed by a detailed examination of soil formation, soil types, and their engineering properties, such as stress-strain behaviour, permeability, settlement, and consolidation. The course also covers the theory and practical applications of soil compaction in construction. In addition, it addresses different types of slope failures, retaining structures, and foundation systems.
