Languages of Instruction : Turkish
Course Goals :
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.
