      The survey laboratory has instruments for conducting chain, compass,   plane table and leveling survey. The laboratory also has theodalite,      tachometers and other modem instruments like digital leveling instruments     and total station instrument along with software and plotter.

The Soil Mechanics Laboratory which is now being called as Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory is well equipped with all required apparatus and machineries for testing the soil strength and characteristics as per IS specifications. The Laboratory is equipped with digital Triaxial testing apparatus, Direct shear apparatus, UCC test apparatus, consolidation test apparatus, etc. Under MODROB Scheme of AICTE this laboratory has received nine lakks grants for acquiring various field testing equipments suck as Plate load test apparatus, Static cone penetrometer, etc. The laboratory is doing good consultancy services in the field of Geotechnical Engineering.

     The laboratory has equipment for conducting the tests on cement, cement   mortar and concrete. Equipment for can′ying out tests on highway materials   are Attrition test, Abarsion test, Sieve analysis etc. This lab is also equipped   with Ductility apparatus for testing the Bituminous material. The laboratory is   equipped with 200 tonne compression loading frame for testing structural   components.

   The environmental Engineering Laboratory has facilities to conduct the experiments as per the syllabi such as water and waste water testing for its physical, chemical, Biological characteristics. Advanced equipments such as Dual Ion analyser, Atomic Absorption Spectrophometer(AAS), Flame photometer, water analysis Kit, UV Spectrophotometer, Conductivity meter, Digital Photometer, DO Analyser meter and Gas Chromotograph etc.

   Facilities such as Beggs Daformometer, Load Cells for conducting experiments on the behavior of structures, frames, trusses, beams and arches are available. Wire models are also available for model studies.

   The laboratory has facilities for conducting experiments on flow measurement devices such as notches, weirs, sluices, siphons, orifices, mouth piece venturi meters, friction through pipes, Bernanllis, apparatus, Reynolds apparatus. The laboratory is also equipped with tilting flume with testing section 330x60 cm.

   The laboratory is equipped with wide range of turbines such as Pelton, Francis and Kaplan turbine with electrical loading is available. Range of pumps such as reciprocating, plunger gear and centrifugal pumps are available. Apparatus for study of impact ofjet on vanes are also available.

   The laboratory has a full range of imported equipment for determination of mechanical properties of materials. The laboratory has Universal testing Machine of 10,60 and 10 tone capacity with all standard accessories. Other equipments like Hardness Testing Machine (Francoscope, Brinell and Rockwell) and Spring Testing machine, Fatigue Testing Machine and impact testing machines are also available. A small workshop is also attached to the laboratory for preparation of specimens.

   Civil Engineeiing depart ment has its own computer centre to train 15 to 20 students at a time. It also has computing and printing facilities. It provides ‘NISA’ Plat form for the benefit of PG students. The laboratory have added up 20 new corn puter and workstations.

   The Civil flgineerng department has good consultancy centre and actively involved in undertaking various types of workspertaining to soil and foundations, cement and concrete tests, steel and building materials, water quality tests and irrigation projects. The services of the consultancy centre are being catering to Private and Government departments.

Faculty in-Charge

Dr. Muzzamil Ahamed,M.Sc,Ph.D

Associate Professor

   The Engineering Geology is offered to Civil Engineering course in 111 and IV Semester. Geology has very wide application in the field of Civil Engineering. It contributes substantially towards the economy and stability of different Civil Engineering projects. Therefore, their stability and safety dpends on the competence of the situ rocks of the sites concerned. This subjects deals with the geotechnical study of the sites and location of major Engineering projects such as Dams, reservoirs, tunnels, roads, and bridges which are indispensable for achieving prosperity and seifreliance.

The Geology museum is well equipped with Minerals, Rocks and other different models related to Civil Engineering to teach laboratory classes.
