Slope Hazard Mitigation Lab


The Slope Hazard Mitigation Laboratory provides facilities mainly for research in the form of undergraduate final year projects. Research activities in the geotechnical area are concentrated mainly in the application of soil or rock mechanics principles to the evaluation, design and construction of structures in and on soil or rock, including design of anchor systems, and site improvement techniques.
