Research Laboratories


  1. Heavy Testing Laboratory


Central fabrication and testing laboratory is utilized by UG,PG and Research scholars for fabrication and testing their specimens. The lab comprises of equipment to analyze dynamic properties using shake table, to study soil structure interaction by pile testing equipment, and to fabricate and testing the structural prototypes by applying static, dynamic, cyclic and fatigue loading. The responses can be monitored with the help of data acquisition system.


  1. Corrosion Laboratory

Concrete is the material to be analyzed its property throughout its service period. The students are utilizing this laboratory to analyze the durability characteristics of concrete by conducting acid resistance, sulphate resistance, rapid chloride penetration test, resistivity meter and AC impedance analyzer. The specimens are cast for minimum 28 days curing upto 180 days of testing.



  1. Environmental Laboratory

            The research works related to effluent treatment, waste management, industrial waste management, hazardous waste treatment are carried out by UG, PG and Full time part time research scholars.
