Welcome to the website of Soil Mechanics Laboratories

School of Civil Engineering, University of Tehran


The Soil Mechanics Laboratory was established in 1934 as one of the oldest laboratories of the School of Civil Engineering. In recent years, it has been further expanded into four major sections including Soil Mechanics, Soil Dynamics, Physical Modeling and Rock mechanics Laboratories. Being well equipped with modern testing facilities, all sections of the laboratory have been involved effectively in educational and research activities as well as collaboration with the industry on various research subjects in the field of geotechnical engineering. Hereby, we invite you to visit different sections of the website to find out more about our facilities and research activities.
