Geotechnical Department Minimize

Soil and rock mechanics and their application in design and execution of building foundations, highways, communication towers, dams, and evaluation of slope stability has developed tremendously during the past four decades. Geotechnical Department, in line with the technical and scientific demands of the country commenced its activities in 1994 by providing both soil dynamicsand soil mechanics laboratory facilities to meet the growing needs of the country.
 
Research Themes
Geotechnical Department conducts various research studies and service projects in cooperation with qualified staff and consultants who are mainly members of the Academic Board and perform the following activities:
1. Evaluation studies of the static behavior of materials and foundation
2. Studies on the assessment of  the dynamic behavior of materials and foundation
3. Preparation and compilation of  codes and standards related to geotechnical  engineering
4. Identifying improvement  methods in geotechnics engineering
5. Geotechnical earthquake Engineering
6. Numerical studies in geotechnics engineering
7. Designing and manufacturing relevant laboratory equipments
8. Geotechnical application in marine and hydrology engineering 
9. Environmental Geotechnical studies
 
 Capabilities
1. Conducting soil and rock dynamic tests using triaxial apparatus with small and large diameters
