The focus of Soil Mechanics is the understanding of soil behavior, construction with soils, on and in soils, the use of soils as construction material etc. Soil mechanics is a branch of civil engineering that has witnessed an enormous developement during the twentieth century.All aspects of soil mechanics and soil engineering are included in this section covering a wide range of engineering issues such as soil compaction, soil foundation, soil improvement, soil behavior, soil reinforcement etc.
