The Section for Geotechnics and Geology has test facilities that are equipped with fully automatic control and data acquisition systems. Laboratory tests are performed by the researchers of the section in order to meet their scientific objectives. Moreover, students are trained to use the test equipment as a part of the relevant courses taught by the staff of the section.
The determination of material, chemical and mechanical properties of soil and rock samples is materialised via the experimental setups of:
