The following laboratories are established and made available for student practical studies.
The objective of this laboratory is to learn about measurement of distances, angles, reduced levels and setting out works. The experiments include determination of distances using chain and tape, reduced levels and contours using level, bearing of lines using compass, horizontal and vertical angles using theodolite and graphical method using plane table. The following equipments are used for such work
• Cross staff
• Levelling staff
• Subtense bar
• Total Station
• Dumpy level
• Plane Tables
• Digital Planimeter
• Auto level
The verification of the principles and theories in fluid mechnics & Hydralics are carried in this laboratory. It includes the study in
The experimental work involved in this laboratory makes the student to understand the fundamental modes of loading of the structures and also make measurements of loads, displacements and strains. Relating these quantities, the student obtains the strength of the material and stiffness properties of structural elements.
