SURVEY LAB

It is the art of determining the relative positions of different object on the surface of the earth by measuring the horizontal distance between them and by preparing a map to any suitable scale. Thus, in this process, the measurements are taken only in the horizontal plane.

STRENGTH OF MATERIALS

Strength of materials, or mechanics of materials, is concerned with methods for finding internal forces, or stresses, and deflections/deformations.

C&HM LAB

C&HM LABIn this lab study, we will test the compressive and tensile strength of concrete. The lab will focus on the workability, batch variation and the impact of the water/cement (W/C) ratio on the strength properties.

ENGINEERING GEOLOGY LAB

Geology is a Science: Greek “Geo” = Earth, “Logos” = Discourse. So geology is the science of the earth.

GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING LAB

Geotechnical Engineering is the branch of Civil Engineering concerned with the engineering behavior of Earth Materials. Geotechnical engineering is important in civil engineering, but also has applications in Military, Mining, Petroleum and other Engineering Disciplines that are concerned with construction occurring on the surface or within the ground.

ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING LAB

The objective of this laboratory is to determine the qualities of water and waste water, quality of air and noise characteristics. The experiments include the determination of pH, turbidity, conductivity, and impurities in water and BOD, DO and COD of waste water and pollution level of air and noise. The highlight of this laboratory is the spectrophotometer and high volume sampler. This laboratory course will help the students to understand the theoretical concepts learned in the course environmental engineering.
