civil engineering dealing with engineering performance of earth materials. Geotechnical engineering uses principles of soil and rock mechanics to determine:Geotechnical engineering is an important subset of
- subsurface conditions and materials;
- relevant physical/mechanical and chemical properties of these materials;
- stability of natural slopes and man-made soil deposits;
- risks posed by site conditions;
- structure foundations;
