CIVIL ENGINEERING LABS

Construction Material Testing Laboratory CTTI (FWO) formerly known as Geotech Lab Chaklala was established during Construction of KKH in 1972 and contributing to quality assurance since its establishment. It has the status of one of the oldest Material Testing Laboratory in Pakistan. Laboratory is equipped with old/manual Chinese version equipment used in construction of Karakoram Highway , to most modern, computerized. Digitals and state of the art Italian equipment. Laboratory is not only providing the quality Control support to FWO but its services are also being offered to other Government and Private Organizations. Moreover , Laboratory is activily playing role for the enhancement of capacity building as national cause. Practical trg to DAE (Civil) and short course (Construction Material Technician Course)are also being provided by this Laboratory. Material Testing Laboratory CTTI – FWO is functioning with professional skills, commitment, accuracy and reliability in the field of different construction materials like soil, Aggregate, Cement, Concrete, Bricks/Blocks, and Bitumen.

BITUMEN LAB

DUCTILITY TEST MACHINE

For determination ductility value of bitumen

RING & BALL APPARATUS

For determination of softening point temperature of bitumen

BITUMEN EXTRUCTOR

Bitumen/Agg ratio bitumen mixture

PRESSURE AGING VESSEL

To simulate long term oxidative aging of asphalt binder

BENDING BEAM RHEOMETER

To measure of low temperature properties of asphalt binders

FLASH & FIRE POINT TEST APPARATUS

To find out Flash & Fire point temperature of bitumen

VACCUM DEGASSING OVEN
