Geology plays a vital role in modern civil engineering constructions; the above sentence is supported by historical examples in the world that influenced the modern construction methodology to be more inclusive of geology. Geology mainly consists of petrology, structural geology and geophysics. There is a reason that civil engineering students are made to study geology in their curriculum which will illustrate the various geological formations, structures and physical properties of the earth and their influence on any type of construction. This paper not only list out the various geological components that are encountered in the field but also briefly discuss the use of these components for the benefit of the construction.
