Applied Geotechnical Engineering

Applied Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnics is an engineering discipline that studies the behaviour of soil and rock from an engineering standpoint. It also entails determining the stability of the slope as well as the risk of landslides, rockfall, and avalanches. Geotechnical engineering is primarily concerned with determining the soil's strength and deformation qualities from a scientific standpoint. In geotechnics, clay, silt, sand, rock, and snow are key materials. Soil and rock mechanics, geophysics, hydrogeology, and related sciences such as geology are all part of geotechnical engineering. Civil engineering includes geotechnical engineering and engineering geology. The specialty entails collecting and interpreting the physical qualities of the ground for use in building and construction utilising scientific methodologies and engineering principles. Its practical application, such as foundation engineering, has necessitated the use of science. The term geotechnics is now used to denote the discipline's theoretical and practical applications. Because all civil engineering projects are built on or in the ground, geotechnical engineering plays a critical role. It's also significant in extractive sectors like open cast and underground mining, as well as hydrocarbon extraction, and it's crucial in assessing natural disasters like earthquakes and landslides.
