Welcome to the Model Foundation Testing Facility/Foundation Laboratory, Department of Earthquake Engineering, IIT Roorkee.

About the Test Facility  

 

This testing facility is revived recently in the year 2016 for carrying out advanced research in the area of Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering. Model foundation tank with loading frame and servo-hydraulic shaking table are two important facilities of the laboratory, which enable testing of small-to-large scale foundation models under static and dynamic loading conditions. Laminar box is another important facility, which enables study of dynamic response of level grounds including effects of wave propagation and liquefaction. The laboratory is also equipped with large size cyclic triaxial, which has capability to determine the dynamic properties of any all type of soils including aggregates. This laboratory has data logger and various sensors for measuring response of various models of geotechnical structures under different loading conditions.
