This laboratory involves learning the basic principle of surveying, measuring of distance, direction and elevation in the field by using various instruments like chains, measuring tapes, theodolite, dumpy level, tacheometer also used in calculating longitudinal profile of road, leveling of land
The students learn the basic load which the beams, columns and arches can safely bear without failing is important.
Hence tests are conducted to check deflection in beams, buckling in columns if the load exerted on structural member exceeds safe limit or not.
MECHANICS OF SOLIDS LAB
Department of civil engineering boasts of a well established mechanics of solids lab with state-of-the-art equipments and latest techniques for analysis. It gives students a chance to apply textbook principles and theory. Students perform experiments which yield the type of data which form the basis of established mechanical properties. By doing this students both confirm the theory and realize some of the limits of its application. Latest machines like Computerized Universal Testing Machine, Concrete Testing Machine etc help the students to perform experiments with accuracy and can study the behavior of materials exactly.
At completion of this course, students should have the knowledge of absolute, differential, and gauge pressure, Basic
pressure measurement, Elementary flow visualization tools, to deduce fluid physics information from flow visualizations, Basic fluid velocity measurement techniques. The state-of-the-art wind tunnel apparatus at fluid mechanics lab helps the students to study the boundary later velocity profiles and to determine boundary layer and displacement thickness. The students have the freedom and opportunity to design their own experiments and establish the relationships like the exponent in the power law of velocity distribution using
the wind tunnel apparatus.
The laboratory introduces the students to some basic geologic principles, starting off with basic dentification of geologic materials, map use and deformation of rock analogs. The students are taken outdoors to explore geologic and geophysical mapping techniques; and illustrate environmental, geologic and engineering topics through visits to local field sites.
BUILDING MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION
The building materials like cement, concrete reinforcement, bricks, mortars and steel etc are being tested in this lab. Construction and building materials provides essential information about the materials that help effectively to link theory with practical knowledge and application. Laboratory helps to analyze data using experiments and to have exposure to different equipments and machines.
The concrete laboratory provides extensive practical knowledge to students so as to make them confident in the preparation and testing of concrete like slump test, compaction test, and compressive strength at different ages and to cast slabs, beams etc.. The lab is well equipped and would make students familiar with the nature and properties of concrete by conducting laboratory tests.
The lab is designed in such a way that the student does an in-depth analysis of aggregate, bitumen and bitumen mixes. The testing of various qualities of aggregates like crushing strength ,impact strength and specific gravity and that of bitumen like softening , fire and flash point, viscosity, moisture content are carried out.
ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING LAB:
This lab is well equipped with all the facilities for Water and waste water testing for physico-hemical and biological parameters by using equipments like BOD incubators, pH Meters, Turbidity meters, jar test Apparatus. The primary objective of this lab is to demonstrate environmental engineering testing procedures, to understand how to interpret the data, and how the information can be applied in environmental engineering practice. This lab is continuously upgraded with the latest environmental equipment like BOD incubator, Hot air oven, digital physical balance; Spectrophotometer. Students contribute through water testing procedures to build a pollution database of the nearby rivers and sewage treatment plant.
GEOTECH ENGINEERING LAB
This Laboratory has the well equipped machines and equipments to conduct various experiments for students to
satisfy the academic curriculum. The laboratory is also being used for consultancy works of private and government bodies to test the soil samples obtained from the field, so as to identify and classify the soils, assess the strength and compressibility characteristics of the soil, estimate the safe bearing capacity and settlement of soil in the field. The laboratory is also equipped to assess suitability of soil for usage as a construction material in embankments and dams. This laboratory involves testing of soil for its various properties like permeability, grain size analysis, shear strength, compressive strength, moisture content, specific gravity.
COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN LAB
Students learn to use the CAD (computer aided drafting) software and its utilities in the engineering software. Study of the various toolbar options and exercises to familiarize all the drawing tools is being conducted in this lab. They study the basic initial setting and viewing of the drafting software interfaces, use of basic entities in 2D, uses of various modify commands of the drafting software. In this lab students are being trained on various other Civil Engineering Software’s also.
