Geotechnology Lab

The Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory intends to train the students in the field of testing of soils to determine their physical, index and engineering Properties. Geotechnical laboratory tests consist of number of tests for the properties of soil. Soil testing is an important function of geotechnical testing and civil engineering in the design of foundations, highway/road pavements, embankments and other earth structures. Geotechnical testing provides valuable information on soil mechanics and materials common to soils such as silt, clay, sand, gravel or rock.
