Geotechnical engineering is regarded as a branch of civil engineering, but one which is more focused on engineering in regards to the behavior of earth materials such as soils, aggregates, sand and such. Regarded as one of the most important fields in civil engineering, as it can have applications in military, mining, petroleum, and other engineering disciplines that are concerned with construction. Geotechnical engineering utilises principles of soil and or rock mechanics mechanics to determine conditions and materials which are due to be used in future such as for building on. The work often involves ensuring that the area being investigated is suitable, stable, safe or will not interfere with wildlife. In this section we stock a small range of tools and equipment specifically for the testing or such materials within the geotechnical engineering field.
