Soil Dynamics Laboratory

This laboratory provides data on soil dynamic properties necessary for determining the dynamic strength and stability of soils, the soil liquefaction potential and the soil-structure interaction. In  cooperation with the other laboratories of the Institute, it performs in-situ testing of foundations and foundation models and other specific tests in the field of soil and foundation dynamics. Dynamic testing of large models (earth dams and/or soil-structure arrangements) is performed on the DYNLAB’s shaking tables and related equipment.
