The Geotechnical Testing Laboratory at UWA has world-class facilities that are used to quantify physical, physical-chemical, thermal and other mechanical properties of geomaterials. Examples of such quantities include (but are not limited to) the density, mineralogy, thermal conductivity, stiffness and strength of the geomaterials being tested.
The laboratory houses advanced testing equipment including a hollow cylinder apparatus, a resonant column device, a dynamic triaxial apparatus and various cyclic simple shear devices, amongst other equipment. The lab is committed to geotechnical education and provision of high-level testing services to both academics and industry clients.
