The rock-soil mechanics laboratory, equipped with modern testing machinery and equipment. There are most of the main test equipments used for determining of physical and mechanical properties of rocks and soils. Experiments also can be performed in accordance with national and international standards for determining the usebility of stones as an aggregate, armourstone, natural building stone and  as a marble.

There are various test equipments in accordance with these goals in the laboratory; These are;
– 200 ton capacity hydraulic press suitable for uniaxial and triaxial tests,
– Bending strength test equipment
– Impact strength test equipment 
– Sliperness test equipment
– Wide wheel abrasion test equipment
