Transportation Lab.

The objective of transportation lab is to check the basic properties of Subgrade soil that is used for construction of highways as well as coal tar which is used as construction material by performing various tests. The lab is having equipment like CBR, Dory abrasion test apparatus, crushing value test apparatus, Los Angles abrasion test apparatus, flash point test apparatus etc.
