Concrete is a construction material composed of cement, fine aggregates (sand) and coarse aggregates mixed with water which hardens with time. In this LabTesting facilities available for the evaluation, preparation, and testing of aggregate sources, products, and samples for use in concrete, asphalt mixtures, and granular base course applications. This Lab also has equipment’s/facilities for the tests on aggregates, bitumen/binder, and bitumen mix. The research on physical properties of paving materials such as flow, deformation, and fracture, to characterize properly the behaviour of paving materials such as asphalt binder and fine aggregate mastic containing asphalt binders. The Laboratory is equipped to evaluate the strength, stiffness, and ductility of paving materials.
