About Civil Engineering Department

The Department of Civil Engineering is a SOUL part of GPERI. The department has developed strong links with the building and construction industry. The department has fulltime dedicated faculty and staff members who are involved in academic activities as well as in research in the areas like Environment Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Infrastructure Engineering and Management, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Water Resources and Hydraulic Engineering etc. Apart from the classrooms the department has state-of-the-art laboratories with all high-end tools and equipments to facilitate practical experience. The department has collaborations with many industries to provide industrial exposure to the students.

Dr. Sandip Trivedi

Ph.D

Department’s endeavor has always been to enhance the industry-institute relations and concurrently figure out solution for critical technology avenues. It interacts with industries and also organizes seminars/symposia for professional interaction. The Department contributes to the interdisciplinary academic and research activity of institute. Department’s goal has always been to train the budding civil engineers by various advanced tools and techniques of the profession. The faculty, through constant endeavor, updates the existing courses which help in imparting the latest technical knowledge to the students. Besides these, there are construction projects on-going in the campus for infrastructure development and the students are actively participating in the ongoing field works and hence have gained a lot of field exposure.

The department has grown into being a preferred destination for people passionate about learning and innovation. It has several factors contributing to how in a short span of time it has established itself as one of the active departments of the institute. The learning environment that offered at department are perpetually evolving to adapt to the ever changing global requirements and along with the diversity of the fields of study.

I would like to congratulate the team; the faculty members and staff for their dedication and constant efforts towards development of department. At last, I would like to convey my best wishes to all the graduating students of our pioneer batch for their successful career ahead.

The lab is well-equipped with Floating Body (Ship), Bernoullis Theorem, Reynolds Number, Flow over Notches apparatus, Losses in pipe Due to friction, Pitot Tube, Venturimeter, Orifice Meter, Rotometer, Flow over Weir apparatus.

Mechanics of Solid Lab

The laboratory is designed to carry out tasks to understand behaviour of mechanics and the properties of solid material. It has Universal testing machine, Impact testing machine and Rockwell cum Brinell hardness testing machine etc.

Surveying Lab

The Surveying Laboratory is equipped with modern surveying equipments, such as GPSbased surveying equipment, total stations, electronic theodolites, and automatic levels for basic instructional and research purposes.

Building Construction Lab

Lab is having models of Plate Girder, Bridge, Road suspension Bridge, R.C.C Deck slab Bridge, R.C.C Balanced Cantilever Bridge, Bridge Trusses, Road Culverts, arches, Model of Bricks, Model of Doors etc.

Geotechnical Engineering Lab

The Geotechnical laboratory is equipped with different equipments to help the students to study the various physical properties of soil and identify the engineering behaviour of geo materails, assessing risks posed by different site conditions, designing earthworks and foundations for rendering a safe and stable load bearing medium to the structure.

Concrete Technology Lab

It allows students to assess the various fresh and hardened concrete properties that may affect the performance of concrete members. Major equipments : CTM, Oven, sieve shaker, vibration table, Vee-Bee consistometer, compacting factor apparatus, concrete mixers, moulds, etc.

Engineering Geology Lab

It is equipped with Liquid Limit Apparatus, Plastic Limit Apparatus, Hot Air Oven, Shrinking Limit Apparatus, Permeability Apparatus, Standard Penetration Test, C.B.R Testing machine, standard penetration, direct shear, unconfined and triaxial shear.

Highway Engineering Lab

Highway engineering is one of the branches of civil engineering. It deals with the process of design, construction and maintenance of different types of roads. Apart from the design, construction and maintenance of different types of roads, highway engineering also includes the study of development, planning and locations of roads, materials required for their construction, highway traffic performance and its' control and drainage of roads etc.

Environmental Engineering Lab

The Lab is equipped with all required instruments to conduct experiments for analysis. Major equipments available are: B.O.D. Incubator, bio. incubator, oven, pH meter, turbidity meter, jar test, conductivity meter, mufle furnace, hot plate etc.

Earthquake Engineering Lab

The laboratory is designed to carry out experiments on vibrations. It helps students to understand structural behaviour imposed by dynamic loads. The laboratory is also equipped with High Frequency Shake Table with Model.

Structure Analysis Lab

Structural analysis is the determination of the effects of loads on physical structures and their components. Structures subject to this type of analysis include all that must withstand loads, such as buildings, bridges, vehicles, machinery, furniture, attire, soil strata etc. Structural analysis incorporates the fields of applied mechanics, materials science and applied mathematics to compute a structure's deformations, internal forces, stresses, support reactions, accelerations, and stability

Water Resource Engineering Lab

Water resources engineering is the quantitative study of the hydrologic cycle: the distribution and circulation of water linking the earth's atmosphere, land and oceans. Surface runoff is measured as the difference between precipitation and abstractions, such as infiltration (which replenishes groundwater flow), surface storage and evaporation.
