ENEC12008 Geotechnical Engineering
The course presents geological processes that produce landforms and geological structures, rocks and soils, and introduces the affect of geological factors on the location, design, construction and maintenance of civil engineering projects. Students conduct geotechnical tests, analyse test data, prepare geotechnical reports, discuss the engineering characteristics and properties of soil. They select appropriate approaches for analysing behaviour of soils in response to engineering applications. They will use appropriate "civil engineering language" in context, document the process of modelling and analysis of soils. Students present information in a professional manner and communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams.
Distance education (FLEX) students will be required to have access to a computer and to make frequent use of the Internet. They are also required to attend a residential school.
