Lab Material testing

Main activities in the laboratory

  • In this lab, we test construction Materials usable in Civil Engineering like: Soil, Sand, Aggregates, Cement, Bitumen.

 List of test that can be done in  civil engineering Lab.

  • Soil
  1. Complete identification: – Sieve analysis

– Atterbeg limit

– Proctor test

– CBR test

– Moisture content

– Bulk Density

– Specific Gravity

  1. DCP (Dynamic cone penetration test)
  2.  Determination of Dry Density of Soil by Sand Replacement.

Sand:

  • Sand Equivalent
  • Sieve Analysis
  • Bulk Density
  • Specific Gravity

Aggregates:

Los Angeles, Aggregates Crushing Value, Ten Percent fine value, Specific Gravity, Sieve Analysis, Bulk Density

Concrete:

  • Slump test
  • Fabrication of cube
  • Compression test

Cement

  • Consistency of cement paste, Setting time of cement paste
  • Fineness of cement powder
  • Loss of ignition.
