Fluid Mechanics and Machinery Laboratory

The purpose of this laboratory is to reinforce and enhance the understanding of the students regarding the fundamentals of Fluid mechanics and Hydraulic machines. The experiments here are designed to demonstrate the applications of the basic fluid mechanics principles and to provide a more intuitive and physical understanding of the theory. The main objective is to introduce a variety of classical experimental and diagnostic techniques, and the principles behind these techniques. This laboratory exercise also provides practice in making engineering judgments, estimates and assessing the reliability of your measurements, skills which are very important. The total cost of the laboratory is around 17 lakhs.

Environmental Engineering Laboratory

Are you longing for clean beach water, wish to breath pure air, walk in a green and healthy environment? Let us marshal the best of our talents to protect our resources and improve the quality of life. The primary objective of this lab is to demonstrate environmental engineering testing procedures. This lab is continuously upgraded with the latest environmental equipment. It covers the four major pollution areas: air, soil and water contamination. Students contribute through water testing procedures to build a pollution database of the nearby rivers. The purpose of this laboratory is to teach the students the testing of various drinking water and waste water quality parameters such as presence of Chlorides, Sulphates, pH BOD, COD, and Turbidity. Research in the Environmental group includes, but is not limited to, solid waste management, biological nutrient removal, drinking water treatment, membranes and membrane bioreactors, nutrient recovery, contaminated sites, endocrine disrupting compounds, corrosion, composting, dairy waste treatment, and aquifer contamination
