Abstract

Engineering Geology, Geophysics, Hydrology and Geochemistry are Main Benches of Geotechnical Engineering. Field Areas are:- Foundation Engineering, Excavation & Tunneling, Embankments and Dams, Improvement of Soft Soil Ground & Sub Grade System (Railways Highways), Disposal of Wastes (Land Fills, Tailings), Landslides, Earthquake-Geotechnology, Environmental Geotechnology Quality Evaluation of Existing Facilities, & Under Ground Construction. India has vast land area of about 3.4 million Sq.km. with in length of about 4000 km, with all fields of soil mechanics & rock mechanics. Case histories of all subjects of Geotechnical Engineering exists in India from north to south [Himalayan area in north to Indian ocean & Arabian ocean in south]. Case study of environment improvement through recharging surface water at source in ground, up to static water table and drilling upto 165 feet depth below ground level upto schist strata (check on water contamination)- in Partap Nagar, Area of Jaipur city of India has been selected, with details of Litholog& pipe assembly. Silent features & benefits of the system are also depicted. The complete system has been checked w.r.t. sub surface geological strata and type of rain harvesting structure for charging deep aquifer, fluoride concentration check, nitrate concentration check and total dissolved solids, to ensure there is no water contamination, when it reaches into aquifer. This will add to augmentation of ground water resources also. Also a brief case study of failure & retrofitting of under ground circular water tank of 6m.diameter, vertical height of 3.7 m & water capacity of 270kl has been discussed.
