The College of Engineering - Civil & Environmental Engineering

Geotechnical

The Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory serves as both a teaching and research laboratory. The laboratory contains all equipment required to do simple and advanced soil tests. Totally automated equipment is used for sophisticated engineering properties tests which include compressibility (consolidation) tests, strength (triaxial and direct shear) tests and permeability tests. The geotechnical engineering laboratory also has various field testing equipment including drill rigs, and an infiltrometer. It also has various demonstration tools including a seepage tan.
