Welcome to the Moodle site of LGCIV2077 Soil Testing and Modelling. Here you will find all the necessary documentation and study material for this course.

This optional course is suitable for students interested in soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering. The course includes primarily a large part of experimental activities in the laboratory of soil mechanics (building Vinci). All students will be able to get acquainted with standard soil testing methods and soil parameter interpretation. Students will have the opportunity to perform experiments and develop a feeling for parameter sensitivity in laboratory reports. In addition to that, the course will be supplemented with basics of soil behavior models currently used for geotechnical design.

Active participation to all sessions is strongly advised as weekly reports are expected from all participants.
