Course Objectives The main goals of the course are;
1. To learn basic subjects and concepts of geology
2. To learn the occurrence, content, history and structure and
properties of earth material.
3. Numerical description of geo-environmental properties effecting the
engineering applications in earth crust, mapping and evaluation of
engineering properties of earth material.
Course Description Description of minerals and rocks forming the earth crust. Understanding
the earth structures and evaluation of geological maps and cross-sections.
Importance of geological factors effecting civil engineering applications such
as tunnelling, foundation, deep excavation, slope, dam site and
highway. In addition, effects of ground water on engineering
applications and selection of earth materials for construction purposes
are also included. Brief summaries of engineering properties, mechanical
behaviour and bearing capacity of earth materials are given.
Understanding geo- environmental conditions effecting various
applications, and risk evaluation of earthquakes and mass movements.
Course Outcomes 1. Learning the types and properties of earth materials.
2. Preparing and interpreting of geological maps and cross-sections.
3. Hydrogeology
4. Occurrence and types of mass movements and stability of natural slope
and deep excavation
5. Selection and investigations of dam site and reservoir area
6. Geology of foundation and tunnel
7. Natural construction materials
