Course Info
The course basically deals mainly with the inorganic environment, the geo-and hydrospnere. Civil engineering, and geotechnics as a part of it, is often misunderstood in two ways. It is either seen as architectural consturuction, or it is considered a nature- destroying activity. It is highlighted in the course that producsts of civil engineering must be in balance with nature. If not, extraordinary expenses are needed for maintenance, or for preserving nature to keep the project “operation or existence”; otherwise the Project will not be longstanding. The course places emphasis on the work of engineers, the environment in wich they work, the use and reliability of their ground- testing and ground characterization methods, the planning and design process, and finally the devices with which projects can be made to fit nature and meet the goals.
