Overview of Infrastructure facilities

Basic Material Testing laboratory

The Material Testing laboratory is equipped with Universal Testing Machine (100T capacity), Compression Testing Machine, Hardness Testing Machines and Impact Testing Machines to cater to the requirement of curriculum. The laboratories are also used for testing and consultancy - quality control measures of Civil Engineering Materials.

CAD Laboratory

The CAD laboratory of the Dept. of Civil Engineering., has been equipped with 42 nos. desktop computers, Laser Printers, LCD Projectors, Internet and LAN Connection, multi-user licenses for software such as AutoCAD, ETABS, ANSYS and STAAD Pro. Students use this software for the design and analysis of structures. The lab also has UPS - 10KVA+ 20 batteries facility.

Concrete and Highway Laboratory

The Concrete and Highway laboratory has compression testing machines, flow test tables, slump test equipment, abrasion testing machines, Marshall Stability test equipment, Vicat apparatus and much more. Students use this laboratory for quality control testing of concrete and highway materials which are used in the construction industry.

Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory

The Geotechnical Engineering laboratory is equipped with triaxial testing equipment, direct shear test equipment, vane shear test equipment, CBR test equipment, compaction test equipment, core cutters, sieves, permeability test apparatus and other equipment. Students use this laboratory to study the fundamental properties of soil to assess parameters such as the safe bearing capacity of soil and CBR values pertaining to strengthening of the soil.

Hydraulic and Machineries Laboratory

The purpose of this laboratory is to reinforce and enhance the 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. This laboratory exercise provides practical knowledge in measuring pressure, discharge and velocity of fluid flow in channels and pipes. Also the conversion of hydraulic energy possessed by the water in running turbines and the use of pumps to increase the hydraulic energy of water.
