Geomechanics Laboratory

The centerpiece of the Geomechanics laboratory is the state-of-the-art combined cyclic triaxial and flexible-walled permeameter testing system, hydraulically driven to allow for loading rates as high as 25 Hz with ultra-sonic testing capabilities. the triaxial system is accompanied by a full complement of traditional soil mechanics testing equipment, including consolidation, swell, direct shear, and classification test equipment.
