Geo Technical Engineering Lab

Geotechnical lab is well equipped to perform all the necessary basic characterization of soils with several advanced testing facilities. The vision of this division is to utilize the state-of-the art knowledge for solving problems related to subsurface. The subsurface includes soil and rock. A typical geotechnical engineering laboratory helps in identifying the engineering performance of soils. There are different physical, chemical and geotechnical properties determined in the laboratory that is required for identifying the soils. This information is used by geotechnical engineer for designing foundations, earthworks such as dams, embankments, tunnels, reservoirs, pavement subgrades, and specialized applications like waste containment systems. The precision of these design is entirely depend on the experimental information obtained from a geotechnical laboratory. Therefore, geotechnical engineering laboratory has a vast role to play in interpretation of the subsurface a safe and stable load bearing medium. Labs has following equipments to perform different test ˜ Sieves- to peform sieve analysis ˜ Pycnometer- to perform specific gravity test Casagrandeâ Apparatus- to perform liquid limit test  Direct shear test apparatus- to perform strength test Permeability test apparatus- to perform permeability Consolidometer- to perform consolidation test Standard Procter – to perform moisture content and dry density Core cutter-
