Hi friends, here Neeraj Yadav uploaded notes for APPLIED GEOLOGY with title APPLIED GEOLOGY Complete Lecture notes and e-book covering all syllabus. You can download this lecture notes,
ebook by clicking on the below file name or icon.
At the end of this course the student shall be able to understand about geological formations,
classification and morphology of rocks, and the importance of the study of geology for civil
engineers with regard to founding structures like dams, bridges, buildings, etc. The student shall
also be able to appreciate the importance of geological formation in causing earthquakes and
1. GENERAL GEOLOGY
Geology in Civil Engineering – Branches of geology – Earth Structures and composition –
Elementary knowledge on continental drift and plate technologies. Earth processes – Weathering
– Work of rivers, wind and sea and their engineering importance – Earthquake belts in India.
Groundwater – Mode of occurrence – prospecting – importance in civil engineering
Elementary knowledge on symmetry elements of important crystallographic systems – physical
properties of minerals – study of the following rock forming minerals – Quartz family. Feldspar
family, Augite, Hornblende, Biotite, Muscovite, Calcite, Garnet – properties, behaviour and
engineering significance of clay minerals – Fundamentals of process of formation of ore
minerals – Coal and petroleum – Their origin and occurrence in India.
Classification of rocks – distinction between igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.
Description occurrence, engineering properties and distribution of following rocks. Igneous
rocks – Granite, Syenite, Diorite, Gabbro, Pegmatite, Dolerite and Basalt Sedimentary rocks
sandstone, Limestone, shale conglo, Conglomerate and breccia. Metamorphic rocks. Quartzite,
Marble, Slate, Phyllite, Gniess and Schist.
4. STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY AND GEOPHYSICAL METHOD
Attitude of beds – Outcrops – Introduction to Geological maps – study of structures – Folds,
faults and joints – Their bearing on engineering construction. Seismic and Electrical methods for
Civil Engineering investigations
5. GEOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS IN CIVIL ENGINEERING
Remote sensing techniques – Study of air photos and satellite images – Interpretation for Civil
Engineering projects – Geological conditions necessary for construction of Dams, Tunnels,
Buildings, Road cuttings, Land slides – Causes and preventions. Sea erosion and coastal
