Course Description:
This module introduces the fundamentals of soil mechanics, including the theory of shear strength of soils and the classification of soils according to their various physical and mechanical characteristics of relevance to Civil Engineering. Relevant experimental procedures are covered in detail in this module and further explored (by means of practical laboratory experiments) in GEL-200. The concepts introduced here will form a basis for the learning of more complex topics relating to Geomechanics and foundation engineering to be seen in Level 3.
