"Dirt Cheap" Project Teaches Soils Engineering
Roman, Harry T.
Tech Directions, v70 n2 p22-23 Sep 2010
This article describes a soil-testing activity that enables students to learn some interesting and useful things about how soil behaves under varied conditions. It offers a great way to give them a practical pre-engineering experience and will show them how engineers think about construction and how local soils influence building design. The author discusses how to start a soils testing unit. (Contains 3 figures.)
