GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING LABORATORY

A typical geotechnical engineering laboratory helps in identifying the engineering behavior of soils and rocks. There are different physical, chemical and geotechnical properties determined in the laboratory that is required for identifying the geomaterials. This information is used by geotechnical engineer for designing the type of foundations, earthworks such as dams, embankments, tunnels, reservoirs, pavement subgrades, and specialized applications like waste containment systems. The preciseness of such design is entirely based on the experimental information obtained from a geotechnical laboratory. Therefore, geotechnical engineering laboratory has a great role to play in rendering the subsurface a safe and stable load bearing medium

ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING LABORATORY

Environmental engineering is a branch of civil engineering concerned with the application of scientific and engineering principles for: 1) protection of human populations from the effects of adverse environmental factors; 2) protection of environments, both local and global, from the potentially deleterious effects of natural and human activities; and, 3) improvement of environmental quality. The lab mainly consists of checking potable water standards, presence of heavy metals and other pollutants in water.
