The Department of Civil Engineering has many advance instruments and equipment with laboratories for study of various civil engineering problems. Some research projects of more practical oriented works viz. effectiveness of granular piles in improving soft organic soils, performance monitoring of Geotextiles used in shallow foundations, numerical modeling in solving engineering problems. In addition, selection of deposits suitable for good quality bricks, consolidation characteristics of peat layer, load carrying capacity of piles in soil, salinity and arsenic problems in Khulna regions, solid waste management, design and construction of waste landfill, leachate treatment and management, traffic management system at Khulna City, dynamic behavior of multi storied buildings, soil structure interaction and cracking phenomena in concrete.
