About Geotechnical Engineering

What is geotechnical engineering?

Geotechnical engineering is the civil engineering specialization that deals with the behavior of earth materials from an engineering perspective. It utilizes the principles of rock mechanics and soil mechanics for finding engineering solutions to practical problems and situations. It is also called geotechnics.

Geotechnical engineers tackle the risks and hazards present in any civil engineering project due to an area’s soil, rocks, and other topographical elements. Geotechnical engineers assess the foundational stones and soil conditions in the project’s scope and find practical solutions for the project’s safety and sustainability.

What do geotechnical engineers do?

Geotechnical engineers evaluate rock, soil, groundwater sources, and manufactured materials. These components of an area’s topography interact with structural foundations, earth retention systems, and other civil engineering structures.

Geotechnical engineers perform thorough soil investigations to prevent foundation failure before building a new structure. These investigation results help determine the capacity and nature of the soil for a stable foundation.

A geotechnical engineer has the skills to assess ground risks and hazards. They work with their teams and professionals from other civil engineering sub-disciplines to find practical solutions to these issues.

Civil engineering and geotechnical engineering

From an educational and professional perspective, geotechnical engineering is one of the vital sub-disciplines of civil engineering. Geotechnical engineering specialization usually starts with a master’s degree in civil engineering.

As a civil engineering stream, geotechnical engineering focuses on the behavior and properties of naturally occurring geological materials in engineering systems. Because soil and rock are the most abundant and cheapest construction materials on Earth, they play a crucial role in the construction and performance of every type of civil engineering structure.

Geotechnical engineering students have broad civil engineering exposure. They further study advanced topics in geology like foundation engineering, soil and rock mechanics, slope stability, and computational mechanics.

Geotechnical engineers are engaged in the early phases of a civil engineering project as the geotechnical analysis is a vital component of the feasibility study of any proposed major civil engineering work. The due diligence carried out by geotechnics is one of the crucial deciding factors of a civil engineering project.

Geotechnics plays a crucial role in planning infrastructure projects such as buildings, roads tunnels, and other offshore and onshore constructions. Geotechnical engineers also assess load-bearing capacity, carry out relevant numerical calculations, check the deformation and settlement in human-made structures, and analyze the stability of cliffs and slopes.
