Soil consists of three phases of solid, liquid and gas. Because of the three-phase composition, soils exhibit different appearances and forms. A required task in geotechnical engineering is to describe and classify the soils for ensuing engineering evaluations in design and construction.

This course, as a part of soil mechanics series, covers basics and standards in soil description and classification. This course is applicable to geotechnical, civil, mining, structural, and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, design, and construction of building structures that utilize soils.
