The soil mechanics laboratory was established in 1982 with the support from the UNESCO which follows the united nation organization and the lab became one of the departments in the hydraulic research center in Wad Madani. The organization funded the lab with technical and modern equipment which was transferred for the heightening of Rosaries Dam. The lab also contains equipment that can measure the water quality parameters.There is also high trained and qualified staff that works in the lab.
1/ The lab established a data base for the sediment monitoring since 1988 by measuring the sediment concentration from many stations across the Nile and Gazira and Managil canals using two methods the turbidity meter and the classic method.
2/ The lab also conduct and analyze different parameters for various projects like the moisture content and the bulk density.
3/ conducts and analyze tests like sieve analysis and hydrometer for dam studies (Merowe and Stete Dams)
4/ water quality analysis
We are willing to be a pioneer in this field by a modernized Soils Laboratory that is dynamic,
technologically advanced manned by competent and efficient technical staff and is guided by the standard operating procedures to provide effective delivery of laboratory services with the highest standard of excellence and integrity of work.
