Geodetic measuring devices are used in civil engineering to measure dimensions which may be in the form of one, two or three coordinates. Various instruments are used to achieve this. Here we introduce a few instruments and their usage.
Any building project that takes place on the ground (that’s many of them) has to be concerned with geotechnical engineering. This branch of Civil Engineering is concerned with earth materials, soil mechanics, geology etc. A geotechnical engineer will examine rock formations and locations to determine safety, environmental concerns and much more. Learn more about this fascinating sub-field here.
Geotechnical engineering is an important field of engineering that is concerned with behavior of earth materials. Some of the important tasks of geotechnical engineering are designing of foundations for structures, embankments, storage systems for hazardous materials, and lessening soil erosion.
Earthquakes are a common natural phenomenon. Today, modern science understands its origins as compared to olden days when people used to say that God had become angry. Of course it still holds true in the philosophical sense, but our main objective should be how to save lives in such a situation.
