Course Aims
Enginering properties of soil layers can be determined with laboratuary and in-situ testings. The best representing of parameters which will be used at the design stage is obtained by evaluating in-situ test resulsts which carry out natural conditions with other studies? results. The aims of this course are that detailed explaining of in-situ testings for evaluating enginering soil properties, chosing appropriate methods and using the testings results in enginnering designs. At the end of semester, students? earnings would have been evaluated by prsenting their laboratuary reports.

Course Goals
 
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
1) Obtain detailed information about in-situ testings
2) Determine parameters which will be used geotechnical problems
3) Prepare in-situ tests reports

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
