Earth Sciences For Civil Engineering Part – I & II

Por: Swayam . en: ,

Overview

The course introduces the student to basic principles of geosciences, geological hazards and their applications in civil engineering. The first 4-week modules of this course will help the student to have better understanding towards interior of the earth, earth system and its process. The next 4 week modules will cover geological hazards and environmental impact, active faults and its related hazard in India, importance of geological structures in dams and tunnels, fluvial geomorphology and ground water, tsunami, landslide and flood hazard, mapping, monitoring and management of hazards.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: PG students of Science and Engineering (especially Earth Sciences). Advance UG students too can take this course.

PREREQUISITES : Basic knowledge of geology is recommended.
