|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.
Large size cyclic triaxial has capability to determine the dynamic properties of any all type of soils including aggregates.
Used in measuring shear wave velocity of the material and calculate the small strain shear modulus using density.
Laminar box enables study of dynamic response of level grounds including effects of wave propagation and liquefaction.
Used to test small scale foundations models on level grounds as well as sloping grounds under static loading conditions.
It is ideal for performing seismic simulation, liquefaction and vibration tests on small scale models.
