EAT104: The Engineering Behaviour of Soils

This  is a core 20 credit module (~200 hours) for the MSc in Applied Environmental Geology at Cardiff University

The Intended Learning Outcomes are:

•Construct a parameter model for soil from first principles, and use it to generalise the behaviour of soils.

•Determine the stress conditions within a soil, and evaluate the impact on the function (namely strength and consolidation) of soil as an engineered material.

•Conduct laboratory procedures for soil mechanics to appropriate international standards and interpret their results.

•Design proactive measures to improve soil as an engineered material
