Objective

This laboratory serves for both teaching and research purposes. The main objective of this laboratory is to provide students with hand-on experience in the field of geotechnical physical modeling and to conduct research for modelling various geotechnical problems. Besides, advanced soil characterization testing that employs the concept of mechanical and electromagnetic waves can be preformed in the laboratory with the aid of sophisticated equipment.
