CIVIL LAB FACILITIES

SOIL MECHANICS LABORATORY

The Soil Mechanics Laboratory has been established over an area of 120 sq.m. and is equipped with facilities to carry out many types of tests on soils. These include testing of a large range of sample sizes for shear strength, Consolidation, CBR, Grain size distribution, Unconfined Compressive Strength, Compaction test etc. Students also learn the techniques to determine index properties and engineering properties of soil by conducting appropriate tests.  The study of various properties of soil and its safe bearing capacity is a prime requisite for designing a proper foundation for the construction of roads, buildings, etc. Students are taught the Standard Penetration Test for the determination of Safe bearing Capacity of soil.

Soil Mechanics Lab. also offering consultancy services to various Government & Private organization and generate revenue to the College under Internal Revenue Generation. Some of our Client includes, Public Work Department (PWD), Tamilnadu Electricity Board, Rural Development &Panchayat Raj Department, District Rural Development Agencies, Tamilnadu Highways Department, Indian Railways, State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamilnadu Ltd., Tamilnadu Slum Clearance Board, Various Municipalities, Hindu Religious & Charitable Endowments Department etc.

CORROSION LABORATORY

Corrosion Engineering is the application of science and art to prevent or controlcorrosion damage in a safe and economical manner. Corrosion tests are conductedfor a number of reasons including:

  1. Establishing corrosion mechanisms
  2. Defining corrosion resistance of materials and how to develop new corrosionresistant alloys
  3. Estimating service life of equipment
  4. Developing corrosion protection processes
  5. Defining the critical potential values for materials in various environments

This laboratory is established for conducting experiments on corrosion anddurability performance of concrete, steel, other metals and alloys. The primaryactivities include experimental studies on model under various environmentalconditions. This laboratory serves a wide spectrum of activities covering thoserelated to teaching, research and consultancy activities.
