CIV* K200 - Soils °


3 CREDIT HOURS
Prerequisite: MAT* K186 .
Corequisite: CIV* K201 .
The soils course and Lab, the capstone for the Civil and Environmental Engineering Technology programs, will highlight the experiences that the seniors have developed during their tenure in the programs. The many skills including the ability to read and analyze technical drawings, provide written technical presentations and to perform related computations will be realized. This includes the ability to read, analyze and solve technician-level written problems involving all levels of mathematical computations, geometric concepts and figures, and trigonometric functions. The students will learn to analyze the soil structure of a proposed build­ing or construction site and to understand problems of existing structures due to conditions of the ground underneath them. Students in the soils class take soil samples and investigate spoil composi­tion, drainage and grade, among other factors. They are required to interpret the 2002 Connecticut Guidelines for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Plan. This plan is a required regulation developed by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection Agency. This regulation is an essential document for both the Civil and Environmental Engineering technology students. An understanding and being able to follow the prescribed procedures and guidelines will be expected.
