09/17/2019: LIVE INTERACTIVE WEBINAR, Geotechnical Engineering: Descriptions and Classifications of Soils - Third Repeat Presentation, Tuesday, September 17, 2019, 11am-1pm Eastern
- Categorize soils based on their consistency, water content, color, and importance in ecosystems and for human health.
- Given a specific soil gradation determine if the soil is coarse or fine grained.
- Following the guidelines of the Unified Soil Classification System, provide an engineering classification of a soil profile using appropriate safety and health practices.
- Describe at least two engineering characteristics of soils that can be used in the construction of infrastructure that contributes to the safety of the public.
- Use at least three engineering characteristics to describe a rock strata and the environment in which it is found.
- Apply historical data to develop a subsurface soil profile.
