Geotechnics / Soils Lab
Learn about the properties of soil and the ground upon which structures are built, by testing on a range of equipment. Software such as EcoSlope and Prokon are available to supplement the machinery.
Ground Materials testing equipment
The Grounds Materials testing equipment allows for testing of soils, sand and other granular materials for shear and compressive strength, permeability and compactability.
The Seepage tank tests how water flows through ground materials such as soil and sand.
