This course deals with the fundamentals of experimental studies of soil behavior, soil properties such as permeability, compressibility, shear strength, and dynamic soil properties through laboratory test methods which include Permeability, Consolidation, Direct Shear, Static and Cyclic Triaxial, Resonant column, Cyclic Simple Shear  and Geosynthetic tensile tests. This course will also cover some of the advanced geotechnical field tests, instrumentation and measurement techniques.
