SEEPAGE THROUGH SOILS: Total, neutral and effective stresses –quick sand condition –Seepage through soils –Flow nets : Characteristics and Uses.

### Geotechnical engineering -i Unit Three

STRESS DISTRIBUTION IN SOILS: Boussinesq’s and Wester guard’s theories for point loads and areas of different shapes –Newmark’s influence chart . Compaction: Mechanism of compaction –factors affecting –effects of compaction on soil properties. –Field compaction Equipment –compaction control.

### Geotechnical engineering -i Unit Four

CONSOLIDATION : Types of compressibility –Immediate Settlement, primary consolidation and secondary consolidation -stress history of clay; e-p and e-log p curves –normally consolidated soil, over consolidated soil and under consolidated soil –pre-consolidation pressure and its determination –Terzaghi’s 1-D consolidation theory –coefficient of consolidation: square root time and logarithm of time fitting methods.

### Geotechnical engineering -i Unit Five

SHEAR STRENGTH OF SOILS : Importance of shear strength –Mohr’s–Coulomb Failure theories –Types of laboratory tests for strength parameters –strength tests based on drainage conditions –strength envelops.

### Geotechnical engineering -i Course Objectives

The objective of this course is: To enable the student to find out the index properties of the soil and classify it.To enable the student to determine permeability of soils using various methods.
To impart the concept of seepage of water through soils and determine the seepage discharge.
To enable the students to differentiate between compaction and consolidation of soils and to determine the consolidation settlement.
To impart knowledge on soil exploration.
To teachslope stability and safety assessment of earth retaining structures.
To impart knowledge on bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundations.
To throw light on pile and well foundation designs.

### Geotechnical engineering -i Course Outcomes
