Open Ended Problem
Apart from above tutorials/experiments a group of students has to undertake one open ended problem using sub-soil profile of their local city . Few examples of the same are given below:
1. Development of spread sheets/computer programmes for the determination of shear parameters using Mohr circle.
2. Power point presentation on any one of the above topic supported with one field application/case study
