Department of Civil Engineering » Laboratories

The department provides the basic laboratories so as to build a perfect base to the professional career of the students. The laboratories which are fully functional at this period of time are:

  • Geotechnical Engineering Lab
  • Survey Laboratory
  • Material Testing Lab
  • Structural Engineering Lab
  • Fluid Mechanics

5. Fluid Mechanics

The laboratory provides support to undergraduate, teaching so that students have the opportunity to see by themselves the essential fluid mechanics principles. The hydraulics laboratory has flumes for undertaking cutting edge research in the area of pipe flow, open-channel flow, sediment transport processes and other dedicated equipments like Venturimeters, Pelton wheel, Kaplan and Francis turbines and Reynold’s apparatus. Work is also being carried out in land use and land cover classification, river migration, water-shed delineation, flow accumulation and hill slope hydrology.
