GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING LABORATORY


A typical geotechnical engineering laboratory helps in identifying the engineering behaviour of soils, rocks etc. There are different physical, chemical and geotechnical properties determined in the laboratory. This information is used by geotechnical engineer for designing the type of foundations, earthworks such as dams, embankments,tunnels, reservoirs, pavement subgrades. The preciseness of such design is entirely based on the experimental information obtained from a geotechnical laboratory. Therefore, geotechnical engineering laboratory has a great role to play in rendering safety of any newly constructed structures.
