Geotechnical Laboratory

The development of a civil engineering project requires a detailed knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of soils and rocks. The geotechnical laboratory of ISMGEO can provide the complete physical and mechanical carachterization of soils and rocks by standard and advanced tests. Static and dynamic tests can be performed under perfectly controlled and repeatable conditions.

The Lab works under the authorization of the Italian Board of Public Works.

ASTM (Volume 04.08 Soil and Rock), AGI (Associazione Geotecnica Italiana) ed UNI standatrds are applied in soil testing, ASTM and ISRM (Suggested Methods for Rock Characterization Testing and Monitoring) for rock testing.

The lab can perform the following standard tests:

Soil testing

Cyclic and dynamic tests

Rock testing

In addition the lab can perform the following advanced tests:
