CE8392 ENGINEERING GEOLOGY
At the end of this course the students will be able to understand the importance of
geological knowledge such as earth, earthquake, volcanism and to apply this knowledge in
projects such as dams, tunnels, bridges, roads, airport and harbor.
UNIT I PHYSICAL GEOLOGY
Geology in civil engineering – branches of geology – structure of earth and its composition
weathering of rocks – scale of weathering – soils – landforms and processes associated with river,
wind, groundwater and sea – relevance to civil engineering. Plate tectonics – Earth quakes –
Seismic zones in India.
UNIT II MINEROLOGY
Physical properties of minerals – Quartz group, Feldspar group, Pyroxene – hypersthene and
augite, Amphibole – hornblende, Mica – muscovite and biotite, Calcite, Gypsum and Clay
UNIT III PETROLOGY
Classification of rocks, distinction between Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic rocks.
Engineering properties of rocks. Description, occurrence, engineering properties, distribution and
uses of Granite, Dolerite, Basalt, Sandstone, Limestone, Laterite, Shale, Quartzite, Marble, Slate,
Gneiss and Schist.
UNIT IV STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY AND GEOPHYSICAL METHODS
Geological maps – attitude of beds, study of structures – folds, faults and joints – relevance to civil
engineering. Geophysical methods – Seismic and electrical methods for subsurface investigations.
UNIT V APPLICATION OF GEOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS
Remote sensing for civil engineering applications; Geological conditions necessary for
design and construction of Dams, Reservoirs, Tunnels, and Road cuttings – Hydrogeological
investigations and mining – Coastal protection structures. Investigation of Landslides, causes and
