Purpose:
This course presents various applications of engineering geology, including rock mechanics, geologic aspects of various foundations, and remediation techniques. The course is recommended for design geologists and engineers, as well as field geologists and engineers.

Description:
Lectures and lab demonstrations will cover: Basic Rock Mechanics (including field investigations, laboratory techniques, and design applications); Geological Considerations of Soils (including formation and laboratory techniques); Rock Excavation (including blasting and mechanical methods); Foundation Treatment (including gravity structure stability and uplift as well as grouting and cutoff wall remediation); Rock Reinforcement (including slope stability, rock bolts, and rock anchors); Geological Considerations of Dam and Levee Safety (including risk informed analysis, instrumentation, and remediation). This class includes a one day laboratory visit where Rock Mechanics, Soil Mechanics, and Drilling Techniques will be demonstrated.

Prerequisites:
Nominees should be assigned: Occupational Series: Selected 0800, 0810, 1310, and 1350; Grade: GS-07 or above and project management personnel.
