OVERVIEW

Geotechnics is an engineering discipline wich deals with soil-structure interaction (foundations, retaining walls etc.), Nonetheless, Engineers must interact with Geologists because the latter  often perform professionally soil characterizations, samplings, technical testings, other than various soil behaviur monitoring activities on-site and in real time. This raises the necessity that they need to have a cammon base of knowledge on this specific issue.
