Through this lab students acquire Torque, hardness of the materials like steel brass and aluminum, and measure impact value of the materials like MS, brass and aluminum. This helps to find out how they utilize the building materials in the field.
Students measure flow analysis of fluid through various conduits viz Venturi meter, Orifice, Mouth piece ect.,. In Hydraulic machineries viz Pelton Turbine, Kaplan and Francis turbine, they can measure the characteristics of the fluid. In meta centric experiment helps to know about the designing of prozolyne model ships, ;and boats.
This lab inculcates the modes calculating the horizontal distances and vertical distances and inclination of planes, using the surveying instruments such as theodolites, plane tables, chains, compass, Total station ect.,. Students can measure the area and volume of the boundary which in turn helps in Railways, roads and bridges using Total Station using latest version.
Soil is one of the most important engineering materials. Determination of soil conditions is the most important first phase of work for every type of civil engineering facility. Soil properties are determined by both field and laboratory test methods. In this course, you will learn several laboratory tests that are very commonly performed to determine different properties of soils. These properties are essential for the design of foundation and earth structures.
Model designs are supported by the Engineering Teaching Departments, which helps us to implement latest educational products to enhance the teaching processes, to meet the changing needs of engineering students and technical teaching staff.
The Environmental Engineering laboratory is well equipped with latest equipments and testing facilities in the area of drinking water quality analysis, waste water analysis, sludge analysis, salt contents in soil etc. Testing and consultancy activities are carried out for various government agencies like Public Works Department, TWAD board, Highways Department and also for various private agencies.
We are having well equipped highway engineering laboratory which has equipments like Marshall stability machine, Ductility equipment, Compression testing machine, Deval abrasion apparatus, California bearing ration apparatus, Impact testing apparatus, Penotrometer for bitumen etc are available.
