Course Overview

The Expansive Soil Certification course is a 2-month online program. This Expansive Soil certification syllabus is offered by the Swayam platform, but the course syllabus is decided upon and made by the IIT Guwahati,  and this course certificate is issued by the institutions and NPTEL and IIT Guwahati.

The Expansive Soil training is a core program that deals with soil conditions occurring in arid and semi-arid regions and different mechanisms of soil expansiveness and soil mechanics. The behavior and treatment of expansive soil can be explained in this course. Settlement issues and ground heave emerge as a result of volumetric changes in these soils brought on by temperature conditions during drying and wetting. Those soils are considered natural hazards and pose challenges to civil engineers. Professor Anil Kumar Mishra explains this certificate course.
