Soil Mechanics Laboratory
The aim of the theoretical and practical training laboratory of advanced soil tests is to study the behavior of adherent and granular soils, studies of sand liquefaction potential, soil water retrieval properties, as well as the main purpose of familiarizing graduate students with advanced soil testing and laboratory experiments. They are also prepared for conducting thesis-related research.
