Laboratory

Material Testing Lab
The objective of Material Testing laboratory is to develop a wide understanding of mechanical & physical properties along with behavioral pattern of various building construction materials. Emphasis is also given to correlate and infer the results in terms of standard values as defined under relevant code of practices. This helps the student in selecting the right material for their intended use as well as to ascertain their suitability as a construction material. The laboratory is currently housed in an area of 92 Square meters and well equipped with semi-automized equipments such as Universal Testing Machine (60T), Compression Testing Machine(40T), hardness testing machine (Brinell’s ,Vicker’s & Rockwell’s), Impact Testing and Torsion testing machines. The lab is handled by dedicated, well qualified and experienced staff.

Geology Lab
In this lab, students will study about physico-chemical properties of rocks and minerals which are very essential for Civil Engineers in field of construction. Study of Geological maps is very useful in interpreting and selecting the sites for various Civil Engineering structures. Calculating dip and strike of a rock and a strata helps in determining the Geological formation of a site which can be of optimum use to Civil Engineering problems.

Hydraulics & Hydralulic Machinery Lab
The Hydraulics and Hydraulic Machines Laboratory of our Institute is a well – equipped laboratory with instruments pertaining to flow measurement. The instruments can be broadly classified as Pipe Flow instruments, Open Channel Flow instruments and Hydraulic Machines. The practical applications of principles of fluid mechanics and hydraulics are experimented and calibrated with emphasis to build basic concepts along with analytical and problem solving skills. Some of the major equipments include Pelton Wheel Turbine, Kaplan Turbine, Francis Turbine, Centrifugal Pump and Tilting Flume.

Computer Aided Design Laboratory (CAD LAB)
The Computer Aided Design Lab (CAD) in the Department of civil engineering is well-equipped with state of the art facilities for the benefit of the civil engineering students. High end terminals supported by latest hardware and software, latest visual aids, plotting devices, etc. are to name a few are available for perusal. Advanced civil engineering software such as STAAD PRO V8i, AUTO CAD 2016 are procured to make students Globally competitive and Industry ready.

Geo technical Lab
The Department of Civil Engineering is equipped with a full-fledged Geotechnical lab that facilitates students to evaluate engineering properties of soils together with analyzing and interpreting the experimental data as per course curriculum. The various equipments of the laboratory include Infrared moisture meter, Oeodometer Test Apparatus, Compression Testing Machine, Direct Shear and Triaxial Test Setup, Vane Shear Equipment Permeability Test Setup, Hydrometer, Motorized Casagrande’s apparatus and CBR Testing Machine. Students are given exposure to In-situ test techniques like Standard penetration Test and Cone Penetration Tests which is also extensively used for all Departmental consultancy projects for foundation designs.

Environmental Engineering Lab
The Environmental Engineering Laboratory deals with water and wastewater quality analysis. The testing is conducted by spectrophotometric and titrimetric methods as per Indian standards. The laboratory has sophisticated equipments like spectrophotometer, BOD incubator, COD digester, Turbidity meter etc., for accurate analysis of physical and chemical parameters in water and waste water. Students will be able to link these concepts with their knowledge from core courses in Environmental Engineering and Basic Sciences. The laboratory is used for both academic course and research which provides students and faculty with hands-on experience in environmental analysis methods.

Surveying Lab
Surveying is one of the thrust areas of civil engineering which involves in taking out linear and angular measurements. Before any engineering work is to be started, we need to prepare a plan or map of the area showing topographical details. The surveying laboratory is fully equipped with major surveying instruments such as Auto-level, Theodolite, State of the art leveling equipments together with angular measuring instruments and advanced equipments like Total station and Digital Planimeter. The laboratory is handled by well qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty. Students learn techniques for gathering field data with both traditional and modern instruments.

Concrete and Highway Materials Lab
Concrete and Highway Materials Laboratory is one of the sophisticated labs of the Institute. The Laboratory offers Technical services for Testing, Research and Consultancy to reputed agencies satisfying the Indian standard (IS) code of practice for testing fresh and hardened Concrete. Non Destructive Testing (NDT) equipments such as Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV), Rebound Hammer (RH), Destructive Testing equipments such as Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) machine, Compression Testing Machine (CTM), California Bearing Ratio (CBR), etc; together with Highway Testing materials, fundamental concrete making materials such as Cement, Sand and Aggregates along with other major equipments are available in the laboratory for consistent and accurate testing.
