Goals
To teach the determination of compaction, consolidation, unconfined compression, triaxial and direct shear properties of soils, calculations of bearing capacity and settlement.
Content
Compaction characteristics of soils, Strengths of soils, uniaxial and triaxial strengths (unconsolidated undrained, consolidated undrained, consolidated drained), direct shear strength (unconsolidated undrained, consolidated undrained, consolidated drained), consolidation, bearing capacity of soils, settlement calculations.

Learning Outcomes
1) Proktor deneyleri ile zeminlerin kompaksiyon özellikerini belirler ve yorumlar
2) Determines and evaluates unconfined compression, triaxial and direct shear strenght properties of soils doing by related strenght tests.
3) Determines and practices preconsolidation pressure, overconsolidation ratio (OCR) and consolidation indexes and understands soil memory phenomenon by doing consolidation test.
4) Calculates bearing capacity and settlement of soils.
