TC101 Laboratory Testing

Laboratory Stress Strain Strength Testing of Geomaterials

To promote co-operation and exchange of information concerning research and developments in advanced laboratory geotechnical testing, including apparatus, techniques, data acquisition and interpretation.



To encourage the application of advanced laboratory testing in research; in integrated site characterisation studies; and in ground modelling.


To explore how advanced testing can be used most constructively in practical geotechnical engineering.


To advance the above aims through collaboration with specialists working in laboratory and field testing, sampling, theoretical and numerical analysis, and in project engineering and full scale observation. This will involve close liaison with other ISSMGE Technical Committees.
