Surveying Laboratory provides students with hands-on experience to supplement instruction in surveying courses.
Surveying takes the foremost place in planning, designing and execution of any kind of construction work. Moreover, knowledge in surveying plays a vital role in the professional practice of civil engineers and architects. Hence, the students are introduced to a course on surveying, provided with ample time and equipment to perform the field exercises on their own.
The survey lab consists of Transit Theodolite, dumpy levels, plane tables, Surveying compass, Total station etc.,
This lab is run in conjunction with the theory course Fluid Mechanics. It is an introductory course where flow behavior and fluid forces are studied. The goals of the experiments include determination of forces generated when fluid flow takes place over a solid object.
Applications of the control volume approach, demonstration of the momentum and energy equations, viscosity measurement and engineering correlations are studied. Intricate flow phenomena such as separations and transition to turbulence are demonstrated. Experimental setups such as flow through a tube, flow over a flat plate and viscometer are made available to the students.
Geotechnical engineering is the branch of civil engineering that deals with the engineering behavior of subsurface materials. It includes Soil Mechanics, which is essential to identify, characterize and study the mechanics of soil/rock and Applied Soil Mechanics, which transfers the behavioral knowledge to practice. This includes investigating existing subsurface conditions and materials, determining the engineering behaviors that are important for designing the foundations.
A typical geotechnical engineering laboratory helps in identifying the engineering behavior of soil. Our Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory is well-equipped with equipment’s for evaluating all engineering properties of soils including index properties, compaction characteristics, consolidation characteristics and shear strength of soils.
The Environmental Engineering Laboratory is well equipped to meet the academic requirements of undergraduate program. Modern equipments are added periodically keeping abreast of latest technological advancements which in turn helps us to render assistance to the students in carrying out innovative projects and to maintain stringent quality and accuracy in our test procedures.
Digital pH meter, Turbidity meter, Conductivity meter, BOD Incubator, Flame Photometer, DO & TDS analyzer, Colorimeter are the major equipments of the laboratory.
The laboratory serves a wide spectrum of activities covering those related to teaching, research, development and consultancy. The primary activities include experimental studies on different types of materials which are using in concrete and testing of concrete specimens in various exposure conditions.
The laboratory is equipped with Compressive Testing Machine, a Flexural Testing Machine, an Accelerated Curing Tank, a Concrete Mixer, a Humidity Chamber, vibrating table, Mortar Mixer and other sophisticated equipments. The concrete laboratory is equipped with all the equipments required for manufacturing and testing of specimens.
The Building Material Testing laboratory is equipped with the latest sophisticated testing equipment’s such as Digital Universal testing Machine with a capacity of 1000 KN, Torsion Testing Machine, Brinell, Vickers, Rockwell Hardness Testing Machines etc..
Testing and analysis on all types of Building materials, including Cement, Concrete, Aggregate, Fly-ash , Masonry, Tiles, Wood, Steel, Aluminum, Bricks, Query stones, and many more are carried out.
The identification of different types of rock and understanding their behaviour are the major Objectives of the Geology lab.
The lab having all types of ores, minerals, rocks and topography sheets for the academic studies. Further, development of cracks, fissures in rocks, their causes and their remedies are to be learnt in this lab.
