Research Lab: Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory

The GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING Laboratory of Islamic University of Technology is equipped with standard and advanced soils testing equipment for classification, compaction, shear strength and other types of tests on soils. The primary aim of Geotechnical Lab is to advance the theory and application of soil mechanics. This laboratory provides both students and faculty members with excellent opportunity to conduct quality research.

Geotechnical Laboratories include an equipment to run routine soil tests such as classification, compaction, relative density, unconfined compression, permeability, direct shear and consolidation. The laboratory also supports Field boring, testing and sample collection.
