Geotechnical Engineering Overview

What is Geotechnical Engineering?

Geotechnical engineering is the branch of civil engineering that deals with the engineering behavior of earth materials, including soil, rock, and groundwater. Geotechnical engineering is important in civil engineering, or any other engineering concerned with construction on or in the ground. In addition to participating in the design, construction, and operation; Geotechnical engineering uses principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics to investigate subsurface conditions and materials, such as landslides, soil erosion, and earthquakes.
