Material Testing Laboratory

m1

 

 Material testing laboratory familiarizes the students with the testing procedure of materials used in civil engineering discipline like – cement, aggregate, concrete, steel timber, bricks etc. The need for compliance with current standards and specifications for materials is also stressed in the course. The laboratory facilities are provided in such a way that it gives a clear understanding of the behavior of the materials namely the physical properties, mechanical properties; suitability of material for use in construction, material selection code provisions, etc. This knowledge is of paramount importance in order to establish the relationship between material properties and the overall behavior of a structure. The need for compliance with current standards and specifications for materials will be understood through tests on materials. The state of art facilities for concrete mix design and material testing are being utilized by various construction companies through the consultancy cell. The material testing laboratory is designed to serve the research works in concrete technology.
