Contents DVD 1 (1 hr., 42 min.). Introduction -- Ch.1. Soil Classification -- Ch.2. Subsurface Investigations -- Ch.3. Phase Relationships -- Ch.4. Geotechnical Laboratory Tests -- Ch.5. Earthwork Operations.
DVD 2 (1 hr., 40 min.). Ch.6. Shear Strength of Soils -- Ch.7. Bearing Capacity -- Ch.8. Stresses in Soils -- Ch.9. Soil Consolidation -- Ch.10. Slope Stability.
DVD 3 (1 hr., 19 min.). Ch.11. Lateral Earth Pressures -- Ch.12. Pavement Design -- Ch.13. Liquefaction of Soils -- Ch.14. Deep Foundations.
Summary "At then end of this self study, you will be able to read geotechnical boring logs, determine shear strength parameters of soils, compute bearing capacity of shallow foundations and perform global and surficial slope stability factors of safety. In addition you will be able to calculate stresses in soil, instant and primary settlements of soil and calculate the geotechnical deisgn criteria for retaining walls. Other knowledge you will acquire is earthwork shrinkage and swell calculations, liquefaction analysis of soils and design of deep foundations. You will have as much working knowledge as a geotechnical engineer with 10 years experience." -- Publisher's website.
