  Equipment is available for performing all standard geotechnical tests for measuring soil index properties, including specific gravity, grain size distribution, Atterberg limits, minimum and maximum index densities, and soil compaction.

More sophisticated equipment is available for measuring hydraulic conductivity, consolidation, shear strength, and dynamic properties. This laboratory equipment, which is used for both teaching and research, includes:

  • 9 frames for conducting one-dimensional consolidation tests.
  • 7 stations for conducting flexible wall permeameter tests.
  • 15 triaxial test stations with pressure panels.
  • Several dozen triaxial cells.
  • 7 direct shear machines.
