What Is geotechnical engineerong? while such a question maybe a timely one, a clear and meaningful answer may be elusive at this time; the answer mar, perhaps, be self-explenatory subsequent to coverage of the material in the following chapters. however, a preview or perspective of the field should provide the student with a valuable notion as to direction regarding topics and problems encountered in the soil mechanics-foundation design field.
Briefly, geotechnical engineering is a subdicipline within civil engineering. it embraces the topics of soil mechanics and foundation design . it develops the groundwork for evaluating the interaction between the geological environment and man-made works, including earth-supported structures, retaining walls, dams, and special foundation. it provides guidelines for evaluating the stability of slopes, for sampling and testing soils, and for improving building sites. In short, Geotechnical Engineering covers all forms of soil-related problems.
Soil Engineering and This motion was take from JOHN ENRICA’S BOOK “Geotechnical Engineering SOIL MECHANICS” A Professor at Department Civil Engineering Youngstown State University
Soil is man’s oldest, perhaps most common, and probably the most complex construction material. Because of its function as the support for virtually all structures, soil become an indisensable component of the construction and, therefore, in a broad sense, plays a mosr prominent role in civil engineering design. hence, in spite of its complexity, we must work with it; we must determne its behaviour under load; we must evaluate its interactions with the structures it supports. in the final analysis, we must fit it into its designated role such that a given design is economical and safe. these are rather demanding tasks that ordinarily require a working knowledge of soil mechanics, some relevant experience, and a great ideal of engineering judgement.
