Nature of Materials LA 211 (Engineering 1) Notes taken January 12 th In this class, we will be learning how a speak landform. (using terms like stone, concrete, plants, woods, and technical terms like foundation and running the scales) Landform is both natural and geometric. Geometric landforms consists of material that is plastic (something that is easily shaped or molded). Natural Geometric The uses of landforms include Engineering Spatial/architectural Environmental Variety – low costs – static/permanent Soil Organic layer decomposes Parent material weathers Subsoil mixes with parent material to form topsoil The Soil horizon of parent material in Indiana is limestone. Soil has pH (which determines what plants can grow) Limestone – has basic alkaline soils Granite – has acidic soils Defining soil type: Could have different levels of organic material Angle of repose/slope Erosion Shrink/swell H 2, which is permeable (swales, ponds, raingardens, bio swales) Landform Language (visual and mathematical) is unique Contour interval is constant The closer the line, the steeper the slope.
