The following PowerPoint slides have been developed as educational modules that introduce various aspects of engineering geology for civil engineers. The committee gratefully acknolwedges the efforts of Thomas Oommen, Sajin Kumar Kochappi Sathyan, Nick Hudyma, Roch Player, Mala Ciancia, and Anna Shidlovskaya for the development of these materials.

Module #1: Introduction To Engineering Geology

Module #2: Physical & Mechanical Properties of Rock

Module #3: Engineering Characterization of Rocks & Minerals

Module #4: Site Characterization

Module #5: Engineering Geological Mapping

Module #6: Geologic Hazards


Training Materials on In Situ Testing:
The following video and PowerPoint slides contain information regarding the Standard Penetration Test as used for in situ testing. The committee gratefully acknolwedges the efforts of Paul W. Mayne for the development of these materials.
