GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING LAB
Geotechnical lab is well equipped to perform all the necessary basic characterization of soils with several advanced testing facilities. The vision of this division is to utilize the state-of-the art knowledge for solving problems related to subsurface. The subsurface includes soil and rock. A typical geotechnical engineering laboratory helps in identifying the engineering performance of soils. There are different physical, chemical and geotechnical properties determined in the laboratory that is required for identifying the soils. This information is used by geotechnical engineer for designing foundations, earthworks such as dams, embankments, tunnels, reservoirs, pavement subgrades, and specialized applications like waste containment systems. The precision of these design is entirely depend on the experimental information obtained from a geotechnical laboratory. Therefore, geotechnical engineering laboratory has a vast role to play in interpretation of the subsurface a safe and stable load bearing medium. Labs has following equipments to perform different test ïƒ˜ Sieves- to peform sieve analysis ïƒ˜ Pycnometer- to perform specific gravity test ïƒ˜ Casagrandeâ€™s Apparatus- to perform liquid limit test ïƒ˜ Direct shear test apparatus- to perform strength test ïƒ˜ Permeability test apparatus- to perform permeability ïƒ˜ Consolidometer- to perform consolidation test ïƒ˜ Standard Procter â€“ to perform moisture content and dry density ïƒ˜ Core cutter-

FLUID MECHANICS AND HYDRAULICS LAB
This lab has basic fluid mechanics set-up. The lab is equipped with different flow measuring set-ups such as venturimeter, orifice-plate, pitot tube, rotometer etc., where students can visualize the basic theory of working of the flow meter. The lab also has reynoldsâ€™s setup, free-forced vortices setup, flow over open channel and impact of jet set-up, where students can fortify their theoretical knowledge. Hydraulics engineering is concerned with the flow and conveyance of fluids, principally water. Hydraulic engineering is the application of fluid mechanics principles to problems dealing with the collection, storage, control, transport, regulation, measurement, and use of water. Application of hydraulics engineering includes fluid mechanics, fluid flow, behaviour of real fluids, hydrology, pipelines, open channel hydraulics, mechanics of sediment transport, physical modeling, hydraulic machines, and drainage hydraulics.
MATERIAL TESTING & CONCRETE LAB
Concrete has been the most common building material for many years. It is expected to remain so in the coming decades. Concrete Technology lab is well equipped with the state of art equipments. Concrete Technology laboratory deals with: â€¢ Testing of Bricks â€¢ Testing of ingredients of Concrete Cement Fine Aggregate Coarse Aggregate â€¢ Test on Fresh Concrete (Workability in terms of Slump and Compaction Factor) â€¢ Test on Hardened Concrete(Compressive and Flexural Strength) â€¢ Non Destructive Testing of Hardened Concrete Rebound Hammer Ultra Sonic Pulse Velocity (PUNDIT)
