Civil Laboratories

Strength of materials Laboratory

The laboratory is equipped with sophisticated and expensive equipments like Universal testing Machine, Hardness testing machine, Impact testing machine, torsion testing machine etc. The purpose of this laboratory experiments is to understand various aspects of mechanics of materials through laboratory analysis. This laboratory involves many experiments which will help to learn and understand the properties of material as well as the responses under various loads.

Surveying Laboratory

This lab helps the students to handle practical problems on surveying and levelling a field, which is an important process to be conducted before starting up of any major civil engineering project. The lab has equipments like theodolite, dumpy levels, prismatic compass and chain with all accessories. The laboratory aims with the purpose of enabling the students to practice land surveying techniques, using a wide spectrum of surveying equipments.

Major Equipments

Advanced Total stations
 Standard Vernier Theodolites
 Dumpy level

Survey laboratory is well equipped with both the modern surveying instruments as well as traditional surveying instruments. Survey lab practice I exposes students to the basic land surveying and leveling surveying. Survey lab practice II provides training to the theodolite, tacheometric and construction surveying. Students have opportunity to use advanced total station equipment.


Computer aided building drawing Laboratory

The lab has computers with latest civil engineering software which is used to draft technical drawings of buildings and also todesign, analyze structures. The laboratory will help the students to model the building in 2D and 3D and alsoto anlyze the structures using computer software packages like AutoCAD, Staad proetc.
