Sustainability in Geotechnical engineering

Geo-technical engineering studies rock and soil supporting civil engineering structures. understanding from the sector of soil technology, materials technology, mechanics, and hydraulics is applied to soundly and economically design foundations, maintaining walls, and other structures. It includes these sub tracks Soil - shape interplay, Earth - preserving systems, Geotechnical risk evaluation and control, Seismic & Geo-hazards, Underground production and tunneling, floor improvement and geo-synthetics and Foundations.

A geotechnical engineer then determines and designs the type of foundations, earthworks, and/or pavement subgrades required for the intended man-made structures to be built. Foundations are designed and constructed for structures of various sizes such as high-rise buildings, bridges, medium to large commercial buildings, and smaller structures where the soil conditions do not allow code-based design.
Foundations built for above-ground structures include shallow and deep foundations. Retaining structures include earth-filled dams and retaining walls. Earthworks include embankments, tunnels, dikes and levees, channels, reservoirs, deposition of hazardous waste and sanitary landfills.
