This book is aimed at students who are studying for the Civil PE Geotechnical module Depth Exam. You will get 40 multiple choice questions in the afternoon session and 4 hours to answer them. You have 6 minutes per question. Some questions, you can complete in less than 6 minutes. Some other questions may take more than 6 minutes. This book covers all the subject matter with a plethora of illustrative examples. Subject matter: 1.0 Subsurface Exploration and Sampling 1.1 Drilling and sampling procedures 1.2 Correlations between SPT and friction angle ( ) 1.3 Soil classification 1.4 General rock characterization (e.g., RQD, description, joints and fractures) 1.5 Boring log interpretation (e.g., soil profile) 1.6 In situ testing 1.7 Total stress and effective stress (Additional chapter added by the author) 1.8 Overconsolidation ratio (Additional chapter added by the author) 2.0 Engineering Properties of Soils and Materials 2.1 Index properties 2.2 Phase relationships 2.3 Permeability 2.4 Geosynthetics 2.5 Pavement design criteria 2.6 Shear strength properties 2.7 Frost susceptibility 3.0 Soil Mechanics Analysis 3.1 Pressure distribution 3.2 Lateral earth pressure 3.3 Consolidation 3.4 Compaction 3.5 Expansive soils 3.6 Effective and total stresses 4.0 Earthquake Engineering 4.1 Liquefaction 4.2 Pseudo-static analysis 4.3 Seismic site characterization 5.0 Earth Structures 5.1 Slope stability 5.2 Earth dams 5.3 Techniques and suitability of ground modification 6.0 Shallow Foundations 6.1 Bearing capacity 6.2 Settlement of Shallow Foundations 6.3 Mat and raft foundations 6.4 Foundation reinforcement design 7.0 Earth Retaining Structures 7.1 Gravity walls 7.2 Cantilever walls 7.3 Mechanically stabilized earth walls 7.4 Soil and rock anchors 8.0 Deep Foundations 8.1 Axial capacity (single pile/drilled shaft) 8.2 Lateral capacity and deflections (single pile/drilled shaft) 8.3 Settlement 8.4 Behavior of pile and/or drilled shaft group 8.5 Pile load test 8.6 Pile installation 8.7 Pile dynamics (e.g., wave equation, PDA test) Other Topics 9.0 Groundwater and well fields: 9.1 Well logging and subsurface properties 9.2 Aquifers (e.g., characterization) 9.3 Groundwater flow including Darcy s Law and seepage analysis 9.4 Groundwater control including drainage and construction dewatering 10.0 Temporary structures 10.1 Construction loads 10.2 Formwork 10.3 Falsework and scaffolding 10.4 Shoring and re-shoring 10.5 Concrete maturity and early strength evaluation 10.6 Bracing 10.7 Anchorage 10.8 Cofferdams (systems for temporary excavation support) 11.0 Worker health, safety, and environment 11.1 OSHA regulations 11.2 Safety management
