100 Introduction
  • Importance of geological studies in engineering investigations,
  • precautions to avoid misleading conclusions likely to be drawn while interpreting drilling data with particular reference to RQD,
  • case histories illustrating economics made possible by proper geological studies.
200 Engineering Geology of Deccan Trap Basalts
  • Factors affecting strength and water tightness, stability of cuts and ability to stand without support,
  • significance of features like gas cavities, jointing, weathering, hydrothermal alteration, volcanic breccia, techylytes, dykes, fractures, field structures of flows, stratigraphic sequence of flows etc. and their significance in civil engineering projects.
300 Dams
  • Strength and water tightness of Deccan trap rocks from foundation point of view, physical properties such as compressive strength, water absorption etc. of basalts, effect of weathering and hydrothermal alteration on engineering properties of rocks, deterioration of rock masses on exposure to atmosphere and suitable treatment for such rocks.
  • Investigations for determining the foundation treatment for adverse geological features, determination of foundation levels/cutoff levels for dams, groutability of rocks, correction of adverse feature by grouting, purpose of consolidated and curtain grouting, determining depth and zones of grouting, relation of zones of grouting with height of dams, foundation treatment for fractures having different manifestations, jointed rocks, techylytes and dykes.
  • Erosion of tail channel as a factor in selecting site for spillway causes of rapid erosion from side spillways, geological conditions leading to erosion.
  • Case histories. 
400 Tunneling
  • Methodologies of investigations for different types of tunnels for different purposes, location spacing ,angles and depths of drill holes for different types of tunnels, difference in behavior of basalts because of jointing as exemplified by compact basalts and amygdaloidal basalts.
  • Difficulties introduced by techylytes, volcanic bracias, tuffs, intertrappean beds, fractures, dykes, hydrothermal alteration, flow contacts unfavorable field characters. Computing structural discontinuities in rock masses, RQD, joint frequency index.
  • RMR values, Q system, standup time. Selection and provision of protective measures such as guniting, rock bolting, shotcreting, steel supports depending on geological conditions.
  • Suitability of TBM for tunneling.
  • Case histories.
500 Bridges
  • Investigations for bridge foundations, computing SBC for bridge foundation based on nature and structure of rock, foundation settlements.
  • Case histories.
600 Geology of Soil Formation
  • Residual and transported soils.
  • Rock weathering conditions favorable for decomposition and disintegration, influence of climate on residual and transported soils in the Deccan trap area.
  • Nature of alluvium of Deccan trap rivers and its engineering character.
  • Effect of deposition of calcium carbonate, Scarcity of sand in the rivers in Deccan trap area.
700 Geophysical Investigations
  • Seismic and electrical resistivity methods of explorations.
800 Construction Material
  • Deccan trap basalts as construction Material.
  • Use of compact basalt and amygdaloidal basalt as Rubble for masonry metal for concrete making.
