Principles of Geotechnical Engineering 7 th Edition SI Edition . CENGAGE Learning Laboratory Manual CivE 353 Laboratory Manual is available from the course website. Course Objectives By the end of this course you will have an understanding of soil formation; grain size analysis; weight-volume relationships; plasticity and soil classification; soil compaction; flow through porous media (hydraulic conductivity and seepage); porewater pressure; total and effective stresses in a soil mass; consolidation; excess porewater pressure; and shear strength of soils. In subsequent geotechnical courses (CivE 354 and CivE 554) principles developed in this course will be applied to the design of shallow and deep foundations, earth structures, earth slopes, braced excavations, and retaining...
