Geotechnical engineering lab of the Civil Engineering Department is fully equipped to respond to the needs of academic institutions, researchers, engineers and construction industries for testing of:

  1. Soil
  2. Aggregate


Latest state of the art equipment’s that are mostly fitted with computerized data collection used to perform various types of soil testing to the highest standard. Some of these machines are:

  1. BS & ACI Sieves
  2. Triaxial Test Apparatus (computerized)
  3. Balances
  4. Permeability System for soil
  5. Consolidation Apparatus
  6. Sieve Shaker
  7.  Direct Shear Apparatus (computerized)

The followings are the major tests that can be performed:

  1. Specific gravity
  2. Atterberg Limits
  3. Sieve analysis (Mechanical &Hydrometer)
  4. Triaxial Test
  5. Soil Classification
  6. Permeability test
  7. Consolidation
  8. Direct Shear Test
  9. Unconfined Compression Test
  10. Proctor Test (Standard & Modified) Field Density Test
