Engineering Geology - EARTH313 (2019)

Engineering Geology is the application of the principles of earth sciences to ensure hazards associated with landslides or unfavourable soil and rock conditions are identified in engineering or environmental work. This paper gives an introduction to the field of engineering geology. Topics covered include: landslide processes and their recognition based on geomorphic evidence; an introduction to rock and soil mechanics; the role of the geological model in engineering geology; slope stability analysis; and site investigation methods.
