 To impart knowledge to classify the soil based on index properties and to assess their engineering properties based on the classification. To familiarize the students about the fundamental concepts of compaction, flow through soil, stress transformation, stressdistribution, consolidation and shear strength of soils. To impart knowledge of design of
both finite and infinite slopes.
