Structural engineering is a field of engineering dealing with the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads.Structural engineers are responsible for engineering design and analysis. Initially they design the individual structural elements of a structure, for example the beams, columns, and floors of a building. The role of a structural engineer today involves a significant understanding of both static and dynamic loading and the structures that are available to resist them. Structural Engineeering Laboratory is equipped with latest digital equipments to conduct various static and dynamic tests on RCC and steel specimens. They include Load frame attached with digital data aqusition system, FFT analysers, Ultrasonic Pulse velocity meters etc. The student will be able to compare the real behaviour of specimens with the theoritical calculations.
Strength of materials is the physical science that involves at the reaction of a body with deformation due to mechanical, thermal and other loads. In Strength of Materials Laboratory, students will have the opportunity to apply loads to various materials under different equilibrium conditions. The student will perform tests on different materials in tension, torsion and compression . Student could compare the results with theory and relate the theory with practical. Real time models are provided for experiments at the end of regular lab sessions to facilitate the student to visualize the concepts of theory. The equipments include UTM, CTM, Impact testing on stell and concrete, Torsional tests etc.
Hydraulic engineering is the application of fluid mechanics principles. It deals with various hydraulic engineering problems of fluid flows and hydraulic machines. Such problems include collection, storage, control, transport, regulation, measurement of water and floatation of bodies. Before beginning any hydraulic engineering project, one must figure out how much water is involved. The hydraulic engineer develops designs for the various structures which interact with water such as spillways,dams,culverts,canals,irrigation projects etc. The students are conducting various experiments to understand mechanics of fluids and performances of hydraulic machines. As the experiments are conducted with the help of scaled models of real time structures, the understanding and visualizing capacity of hydraulic engineering problems are appreciable. The equipments include Pelton wheel, Francis and Kaplan Turbines, Hydraulic Flume, Venturi and Orifice meters, Frictional loss analysis setup, Pumps, Buoyancy and flotation instruments.
Soil mechanics is a branch of engineering mechanics that describes the behavior of soils. Laboratory tests conducted in soil mechanics laboratory provide necessary data for the design of buildings, bridge foundations, dams, road and tunnels, embankments and slopes. Soil mechanics provides the theoretical basis for analysis in geotechnical engineering. Our soil mechanics laboratory is well equipped with Sieves, Hydrometer, Triaxial Shear, Proctor Compaction etc. It provides students with all facilities required to deepen their understanding of principles governing soil engineering properties and behavior.
Concrete structures and Highway networks are inevitable for any devloping nation. Concrete is a composite material composed of aggregates, cement and water. Aggreagtes and tar are mainly used for the laying of Highways. The quality materials ensures the quality of structures. The materials, fresh mixes and hardened mixes are tested in concrete and highway laboratory. The materials are tested for thier specific gravity, gradation, abrasion, crushing strength, softening point, flash and fire points. etc. The fresh concrete and hardened concrete are tested for different properties. Student will understand the role of quality of material while using the fresh mixes and in fixing the strength of finished product. Concrete and Highway Materials Laboratory is well equipped with major equipments such as CTM, Los-Angeles abrasion testing machine, CBR apparatus, Marshall stability testing apparatus, Compaction Apparatus, Concrete mixer etc.
Environmental engineering is the integration of sciences and engineering principles to improve the natural environment by providing healthy water, air and land for human habitation and for other organisms and to clean up polluted sites.The students will conduct experiments on water samples to determine calcium, sodium, potassium, ammonia, nitrate, phosphate, suspended and settable solids contents. Students will understand the sampling, preservation methods, characterization of wastewater. The students will get an idea about treatability of waste waters Evironmental lab is well equipped with advanced instruments like Oxyzen analyser, Spectrophotometer, Flamephotometer, Gas Chromatography, Atomic absorption spectroscopy, Nephlo turbidity meter, BOD, COD analyzer etc. The experiments studied will help students to take up project work on current environmental issues.
Surveying is the technique, profession, and science of determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them. Surveying Laboratory has varieties of modern surveying equipment such as GPS,Total stations, Theodolites, and Automatic levels for regular laboratory classes and for Consultancy and Research purposes. Undergraduate students use the laboratory for their surveying coursework and obtain good exposure in topographic informations so as to design projects in the domains of highway design and land developments. Student use of the lab is preceded by appropriate safety training and instruction on the use and care for the equipment.
Computer-aided design (CAD) is a computer technology that designs a product and documents the design's process. CAD may facilitate the manufacturing process by transferring detailed diagrams of a product’s materials, processes, tolerances and dimensions with specific conventions for the product in question. It can be used to produce either two-dimensional or three-dimensional diagrams, which can then when rotated to be viewed from any angle, even from the inside looking out. AutoCAD is a computer-aided drafting software program used to create blueprints for buildings, bridges, and computer chips, among other things.
The commercial version, STAAD Pro, is one of the most widely used structural analysis and design software products worldwide. It supports several steel, concrete and timber design codes
