KEY FEATURES

1.

Environmental Engineering Lab

 

Faculty Coordinator:

Mr. Shubham Bansal

Environmental engineering lab helps in the pollution prevention as air, water and noise testing is done in the lab. As a result of these tests, various remedies can be suggested to reduce the environmental pollution. The purpose of this lab is to make the students aware of the dangerous effects of environmental pollution. With these tests environmental protection agency can keep a check on the hazardous emissions by any industry and can protect health of common man, water toxicity, land spoiling and air pollution.

Concrete Lab

 

Faculty Coordinator:

Ms. Megha Kalra

Research at the Concrete Performance Lab focuses on concrete durability, early-age properties of concrete and the pursuit of high-performance civil engineering materials. Concrete, the most widely used building material in the world, is a sustainable material when properly designed and constructed.

Transportation Engineering Lab

 

Faculty Coordinator:

Mr. Shubham Bansal

Transportation engineering section of the civil engineeringdepartment is involved with multifarious activities related to highway engineering in particular. Coarse Aggregates form the major part of the pavement structure and this is the prime material used in pavement construction. Bitumen is a petroleum product used in pavement construction works. This lab primarily deals with basic tests of Coarse

Aggregates and Bitumen.

Soil Mechanics Lab & Foundation Lab

 

Faculty Coordinator:

Dr. Amit Srivastava

The loads from any structure have to be ultimately transmitted to a soil through the foundation for the structure. Thus, the foundation is an important part of a structure, the type and details of which can be decided upon only with the knowledge and application of the principles of soil mechanics.

Structural Analysis

 

Faculty Coordinator:

Ms. Megha Kalra

The Structural Engineering Laboratory at NCU serves a wide spectrum of activities covering those related to teaching, research, development, and consultancy. The primary activities include experimental studies on model/prototype of structural elements and assemblies under various static and dynamic loading conditions.

With the available test area, state-of-the-art load/displacement-controlled equipment for load application, precision instrumentation, online data acquisition and monitoring, the laboratory represents a unique facility for large and full scale investigation of the load-deformation behaviour of structures
