GEOLA is a fully equipped geotechnical and aggregate research laboratory, whose range of services currently includes about 150 different standardised test methods. As a significant part of the more demanding research equipment is developed and built by us, we are also able to develop and implement customised test methods on a  case-by-case basis to meet the needs of different research projects. Our research capabilities cover the following areas, among others:

  • Basic physical and mechanical properties of soil and aggregate materials
  • Mechanical properties of soil materials at different stress and strain levels in drained and undrained conditions
  • Mineralogical composition of aggregates and analysis of fines fractions
  • Tests and measurements related to environmental structures
  • Tests and measurements related to the structures of recreational areas and sports facilities
  • Properties of asphalt mixes
  • Properties of brick materials
