Material Testing Lab

Material Testing Lab

Material testing lab is used to expose students on various experiments conducted on different materials which are used in Civil Engineering. In the lab, the students tests basic building materials such as cement, aggregate, steel and concrete and compares that with the standards given by Indian Standard codes. The major equipments that are available in lab are universal testing machine, torsion testing machine, impact testing machine, Brinell and Rockwell hardness testing machine, spring testing machine, fatigue testing machine.
Lab in-charge: Alwyn Varghese, AP/CE

Surveying Lab-I

Surveying Lab-I

Survey lab consists of equipments which are useful for land measurements and leveling operations. At the second year level, the students gets practical training to the various topics covered in theory course
The lab includes the basic instruments such as theodolite, dumpy level, plane table, prismatic compass and modern equipments like total station, electronic theodolite and autolevel which have more accuracy in surveying.
Lab in-charge: Gopika Unni, AP/CE

Geotechnical Engineering Lab

Geotechnical Engineering Lab

For the design of any Civil Engineering structure, foundation has to be designed. Design of foundation requires the basic properties of soil and its safe bearing capacity. Geotechnical lab helps the students in understanding the concepts of geotechnical engineering in detail. The major equipments in the lab include the following: Casagrande apparatus, core cutter apparatus, proctor compaction apparatus, CBR apparatus, shear test apparatus, unconfined compression test apparatus.
Lab in-charge: Lakshmi Sai A, AP/CE

Design and Analysis Lab

Design and Analysis Lab

Design and Analysis Lab is established in the department with latest software packages including AutoCAD from Autodesk, STAAD.Pro and Microsoft Project to make the students familiar with drafting, analysis & design of structures and construction management. Internet connectivity is provided for all the systems. The lab is effectively utilized for conducting workshops for the benefit of students and faculty members.
Lab in-charge: Anu Retnakar, AP/CE

Environmental Engineering Lab

Environmental Engineering Lab

The Environmental Engineering laboratory mainly deals with the determination of physio-chemical and bacteriological properties of water. The laboratory has sophisticated equipments to analyze different water quality standards. It is equipped with Turbidimeter, pH meter, COD apparatus, BOD incubators, Hot Air Oven, Muffle Furnace and other equipments for water and wastewater quality analysis.
