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 how the flow meter works. The lab also has Reynolds 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 modelling, hydraulic machines, and drainage hydraulics.
The structural analysis lab is well equipped and helps to understand the practical behaviour of the physical structural elements like beams, arches, column and struts etc. The list of apparatus, which are being used for conducting experiments in the Structural analysis laboratory are as follows - Elastic properties of deflected beam apparatus, Elastically coupled beam apparatus, Apparatus for verification of Clark's Maxwell reciprocal theorem, Two hinged arch apparatus, Curved member apparatus, Redundant joint apparatus, Unsymmetrical bending apparatus, Three hinged arch apparatus, Column and Strut apparatus.
