This course aims to provide extensive knowledge about different types of foundations and pavements,
their design methodologies, characteristics, laying down procedures and problems associated with
them. The course is mainly divided into two portions. One portion corresponds to foundations of
buildings and their different types. This portion deals with engineering parameters associated with
different types of foundations, design of different types of foundations, choice and depth of
foundation for any civil work based upon the external loading. The other portion consists of
explanation regarding different types of pavements and their designs. Furthermore, pavement
materials, pavement distresses, method of construction of pavements and effect of traffic and other
extraneous variable on pavements are discussed in detail. At the end of this course, students will have
better understanding of layout, alignment parameters, design and construction of rigid and flexible
pavements. They will also be able to understand typical design of foundations.
