The objective of this laboratory is to demonstrate the basic principles in the area of engineering mechanics and strength of materials to the undergraduate students through a series of experiments. In this lab various experiments are performed based on basic engineering to measure the material properties such as impact strength, tensile strength, compressive strength, hardness, ductility etc.
The testing and inspection of concrete and concrete making materials like cement and aggregates to obtain quality construction is done in this lab. The laboratory allows the students to perform tests on the materials and also to assess the properties of various fresh and hardened concrete that may affect the performance of concrete members. The apparatus and machines available at the concrete technology laboratory is Sieve Shaker, Compressive testing machine, Flexural Testing Machine, Apparatus for workability measurement etc.
Soil Testing is an integral part of soil mechanics and foundation engineering. A proper evaluation of soil samples and analysis of test results is essential for practicing Civil Engineers. Tri-axial Testing machine, Direct Shear testing machine, Unconfined compression testing machine, consistency limit testing apparatus are available in this laboratory.
