 | Post date: 2019/12/3 | 
The Geotechnical Laboratory is established in an area of about 50 square meters in the department and various activities are carried out in the laboratory, some of which are as follows:

Laboratory Research Activities
Important activities in the geotechnical laboratory include carrying out research projects of undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. students. A variety of accurate and precise measuring equipment and instruments for measuring force are available in the laboratory, providing a good opportunity for research and application projects. Various research has been completed by research groups so far, including pressure cell, load cell, flat dilatometer, rigid intra-borehole dilatometer, flat jack, and Micro TBM.
Industrial and Service Activities
One of the important activities carried out at the geotechnical laboratory is the implementation of various industrial projects to connect with the industry. Subjects considered up to now in industrial and service projects include a variety of tests on different soils. The most important activities in this laboratory are:
  • Measuring the rock abrasion percentage (Los Angeles method)
  • Measuring the stone abrasion percentage (Duval method)
  • Atterberg limits of soil
  • Measuring soil consolidation
  • Determining the soil moisture percentage
  • Determining the soil uniaxial resistance
  • Creating the concrete sample in two models (cylindrical-square)
  • Direct shear of soil
  • Vane shear of soil
  • Determining the soil density
  • Determining the soil gradation
  • Determining the S20 and SJ indices
  • Determining the Cerchar index
