SL1

The planning and design of all Civil Engineering projects such as construction of highways, bridges, tunnels, dams etc. are based upon surveying measurements. Moreover, during execution, project of any magnitude is constructed along the lines and points established by surveying. The laboratory has modern instruments which are extensively used in order to edify the students about the latest surveying methodologies. Total stations are being used extensively for all survey works. Annual survey camps are held for 2 weeks for pre final year students.

TE1

Transportation has always played an essential role in the development of society, originally with regard to trade routes and harbors, but more recently with regard to land and air based systems as well. The main objective of developing transportation engineering laboratory is to provide a platform for the B Tech students for practical implementation of Transportation engineering projects, thereby uplifting the standards of the students to industrial level. The laboratory is well equipped with latest instruments with advanced testing facilities.

CE010 708 TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING LAB

Faculty In Charge: Assistant Professor Saranya Ullas

Lab Instructor: Mrs. Omana D.V

m1Material 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.

Since the inception of Geotechnical engineering laboratory, all the faculties, students and associated lab staff have dynamically contributed for the progress of the laboratory. The laboratory caters to the needs of graduate as well as post graduate (Goemechanics & structures) students of the civil engineering department. The laboratory is well equipped to execute all the necessary soil tests along with several advanced testing facilities. The facilities provided in the laboratory are such that it can undertake consultancy works. The vision of this division is to utilize the state-of-the art knowledge for solving problems related to subsurface. The results from geotechnical engineering laboratory are critical in determining the engineering behavior that are relevant to a particular project considered, assessing risks posed by site conditions; designing earthworks and foundations. There are different physical, chemical and geotechnical properties determined in the laboratory that is required for identifying the subsurface. This information is used by geotechnical engineer for designing the type of foundations, earthworks such as dams, embankments, tunnels, reservoirs, pavement subgrades, and specialized applications like waste containment systems. The preciseness of such design is entirely based on the experimental information obtained from a geotechnical laboratory. Therefore, geotechnical engineering laboratory has a great role to play in rendering the subsurface a safe and stable load bearing medium
