Geotechnical Engineering 101 and more…

Building firm foundations


This weblog is about the impact of Geotechnical Engineering in everyday life. It is not a very systematic approach to introducing the field of Geotechnical Engineering. However, it is an attempt at collecting together my thoughts, knowledge, opinion, etc on various matters related to the field in simple language that most can understand. More information about me.

To do complete justice to Geotechnical Engineering, I will expand to peripheral subjects like geology, hydrology, earthquake engineering, etc. Your opinions, suggestions, criticism, everything is most welcome and will contribute to this weblog.

  1. All decisions regarding Substructure Componants and any/every thing below ground level even remotely related thereto need to be vetted by a competent GeoTech Engineer.
    There have been cases of ignorant Client, Consultant and Contractor signing and implementing ‘VOID CNTRACTS (especially under sections 29, 56 and 67 of Indian Contract Act 1872)’ not vetted by a competent GeoTech Engineer.
    For example ENT Specialists and Dentists never encroach on each others jurisdiction(areas of work)though they are pretty close in some cases.
