The geotechnical report provides critical and vital information for the owner, architect, design engineer, and contractor to use and evaluate. This course introduces the student to the many components that make up a thorough geotechnical report. The various observations and tests are explained so that an inference to the ground properties can be achieved. The geotechnical report is a complex scientific document that can be confusing to even highly experienced people. Owners, architects, engineers, and contractors must be able to understand the implications of the reports in order to achieve an on-time, on-budget, and failure-free project. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
