Lab Resources

The Geotechnical/Soil dynamics Laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art routine geotechnical testing devices and a variety of unique research equipment. These include a:

  • Resonant column/torsional triaxial shear device
  • Cyclic torsional simple shear device, and others with a high-speed data acquisition system.


Research Highlights

Recent doctoral research includes:

  • Behavior of Piled Raft Foundation in Partially Saturated Soil
  • A Study of Passive Earth Pressure in Anisotropic Sand with Various Wall Movement Modes
  • Use of EPS-Filled Tires as Lightweight Construction Materials
  • Determination of Anisotropy of Granular Materials and Its Relation to Liquefaction Resistance under Cyclic Loading
