The Civil Engineering Materials Lab.
provide facilities for instruction in concrete and bituminous materials testing methods, as well as opportunities for research in construction materials and their application to engineering problem.
The cement and concrete Lab.
has equipment for strength testing, fatigue analysis, pulse velocity measurement, chloride content determination, and lapping and examining sections by microscopical processes.There is also a curing room and a controlled temperature/humidity room.
The Bituminous Lab.
provides facilities for testing bituminous materials and mixtures. Included are equipment for kneading and gyratory compaction, resilient modulus determination,creep testing, and a loading facility that permits static and dynamic loading over a wide range of programmed conditions. There are also facilities for micing, sieving, crushing, and sawing.
The Pavement Evaluation Lab.
has facilities such as Benkelmen Beam, profilometer, and nuclear gauge for density and moisture content. Also included are the equipment for the determination of soil resistance value, CBR, Resistance modulus, and modulus of subgrade reaction.
