Laboratory in CIVIL Department

Engineering Geology Laboratory

Engineering Geology deals with the application of geologic sciences to engineering practice for the purpose of assuring that the geologic factors affecting the location, design, construction, operation and maintenance of civil engineering structures. The Engineering geology laboratory comprise of samples of minerals, stones and models of folds/faults etc. The Engineering Geology Lab involves identification of various geological characteristics of minerals and rocks. The study of geological, geotechnical and topographical maps is also performed in this Laboratory.

Surveying Laboratory

Surveying Laboratory provides students with hands-on experience to supplement instruction in surveying courses. The Surveying Laboratory has a variety of modern surveying equipment, such as Total station, Theodolite, and automatic levels for basic instructional. Students learn techniques for gathering field data with both traditional and modern instruments in this Lab. Student use of the lab is preceded by appropriate safety training and instruction on the use and care for the equipment.

Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulics Machines Lab

The purpose of Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines laboratory is to reinforce and enhance understanding of the fundamentals of fluid mechanics and hydraulic machines. The experiments here are designed to demonstrate the applications of the basic fluid mechanics principles and to provide a more intuitive and physical understanding of the theory.

Solid Mechanics Laboratory

The objective of the Solid Mechanics (Material testing/Strength of Materials) lab is to demonstrate the basic principles in the area of strength and mechanics of materials to the undergraduate students through a series of experiments. In this lab the experiments are performed to measure the properties of the materials such as shear, hardness, ductility, impact strength, tensile strength, compressive strength etc.

Transportation Engineering Laboratory

The Transportation Engineering lab has equipment required to conduct the standardized tests to assess quality of highway materials, pavement evaluation and traffic studies. The Transportation Engineering lab includes the spot speed studies, volume counts, and conflict studies for preparing road improvement plans to enhance road safety that helps students in quality assurance, quality control for the Roads and Traffic engineering surveys.

Environmental Engineering Laboratory

The Environmental Engineering Lab involves the testing of water quality that brings awareness to the students about the various parameters on which water is evaluated for proper usage. It also includes the purification experiments which is of a greater help. All the tests required to assess the potability of drinking water are available in this lab. The quality of waste water and its pollution strength can also be tested using the tests like BOD and COD.

Soil Mechanics Laboratory

A Soil Mechanics laboratory helps in identifying the engineering behavior of soils, rocks and byproducts such as fly ash etc. There are different physical, chemical and geotechnical properties determined in the laboratory that are required for identifying the geomaterials. The Soil Mechanics Laboratory is equipped with facilities to carry out all types of tests on soils.

Concrete Technology Lab

The Concrete Lab (Material testing and Evaluation lab ) deals with the testing various construction materials for quality assurance and strength parameters such as cement, brick, fine aggregate & coarse aggregate. Various research work is also carried out in this Lab that includes evaluation of various properties of fresh and hardened concrete. Students learn the standard procedure to test the quality of building materials in line with the corresponding IS codes. In addition to meeting the curriculum, the equipment’s in the laboratory are extensively utilized for projects by students and also faculty for their research work.

Engineering Graphics and CAD Laboratory

Engineering graphics is the creation of engineering drawings. These are representations of physical objects/locations on paper (or in 2 dimensional or 3 Dimensional electronic format). In a typical introductory engineering graphics course it covers the basics of drawing view creation (left side, right side, etc.), presentation of lines (Hidden, no hidden) and projections such as isometric. It also inlcudes things like dimensioning, tolerancing and other items required to properly communicate the concept to another person. The Engineering graphics and Computer-Aided Design laboratory is dedicated to teach computer-aided design and image-processing. Through drawing software called AUTOCAD, the building drawings and detailing will be taught.
