This course focuses on the use of soil as a construction material and provides an overview of how physical and engineering properties vary with soil type. We will cover definitions, soil characteristics, soil classifications systems, geotextile types and applications, and earthwork grading activities. We'll also give you examples of the computation of cut-and-fill volumes.
