Engineering Materials Lab

The materials primarily tested in the Engineering Materials Laboratory are concrete itself or its constituents (i.e., cement, fine aggregate,and coarse aggregate). Currently, the lab is being used for offering sessional courses to 2nd-year students, as well as for research for the departmental faculty. 

Facilities of this Laboratory:

Following facilities are provided by Engineering Materials Lab for testing and research.
