Soil/Rock Properties Laboratory

Metadata Updated: March 26, 2018

Soil/Rock Properties LaboratoryLocation: Spokane SiteThe Soil/Rock Properties Laboratory is contained in the soils bay, a 4,700 sq. ft. facility that provides space and equipment for preparing, characterizing, and testing consolidated and unconsolidated materials. The laboratory provides the capability to wash, screen, dry, and mix unconsolidated materials such as soils prior to testing. Researchers test consolidated or cemented materials and rock for various engineering properties using a suite of test frames in the laboratory.The laboratory contains a 70 sq. ft. wet cure room equipped to fog-cure cementitious samples prior to testing. Depending on the samples' components or the required curing timeframe, the room provides space for large-sized samples as well as a large number of samples. The laboratory is also equipped with a million pound compression test frame,[HTML_REMOVED]programmable controlled tension-compression test frame, three tension-compression test frames, and a fiber-panel testing device.The labs large scale direct shear test frame (300,000 pound axial and shear forces) with programmable control is used for biaxial testing on rock, concrete, and soil samples. The sample size can vary from 1 inch diameter rock cores to 14 inch square concrete blocks.
