Department Of Civil Engineering

Theory of Structures Lab

The theory of structures lab provides latest facilities to idealize structural response, function of individual members and the behavior of structures in different scenarios and loading conditions. The equipment can be used to measure torsion, moments, deflections unsymmetrical and symmetrical bending and impact and ductility tests

Highway Engineering Lab

This lab is used for the testing of pavement materials, consisting of both the binder and the aggregates. The lab has the ability to perform the penetration and grading, flash and fire point, and ductility tests of bitumen on one hand and on the other can be used to test the impact, abrasion and fatigue resistance of the aggregates along with the flakiness index and the elongation numbers of aggregates. Plate load testing and California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test can be readily performed in the Lab.

Geotechnical Engineering Lab

The lab has one of the most advanced Triaxial testing machine and direct shear test machine. The lab also has the sufficient gear to analyze the properties of soil, their gradation, moisture values and the Atterburg’s limits. The constant and falling head apparatus is also present for the determination of permeability and the verification of Darcy’s law. The standard and modified proctor test equipment can be used to calculate the dry density as well as the bulk density of the soil for the optimum moisture content. The laboratory also contains field equipment; the standard penetration test apparatus, the speedy moisture kit and the in filed density measuring equipment (Sand cone, core cutter, Balloon apparatus).

Materials and Concrete Lab

The materials lab has a very high quality Universal testing machine (UTM) that is computer controlled and also gives output in the form of digital data. The Machine is latest and highly efficient. It can perform the tensile as well as the compression tests on both; concrete and steel specimens. The lab also contains the equipment for testing the properties of fresh concrete, the soundness and the properties of aggregates.

Surveying Lab

The lab also possesses 3 refractive-less total stations which can survey to any distance their lens can see.  Beside numerous work station of basic and advanced surveying the lab has ample number of theodolites and auto levels of foreign origin.


Environmental Engineering Lab

Environmental engineering lab is equipped with standard facilities that can offer services for commercial testing as well. The lab has water and waste water testing equipment comprising DO meter, COD and BOD meter along with incubators, multipurpose pH and EC meter, nephelometric turbidity meter, Jar test apparatus to ascertain the quantity of coagulants.

Fluid Mechanics Lab

The fluid mechanics lab measures the fluid flow, discharges and energy losses during flow though open channel and conduits. It is equipped with multiple hydraulic benches beside pressure gauges, venturi-flume, Bernoulli’s theorem apparatus, drag coefficient apparatus, impact of jet, equipment for measuring the head losses in different cases including various materials and types of bends and valves
