CV2711 Civil Engineering Laboratory A​

[Lectures: 0 hrs; Tutorials: 0 hrs; Lab: 30 hrs; Pre-requisite: Nil; Academic Units: 1]

Learning Objective :

Laboratory work is an integral part of engineering training provided at NTU. It complements the lectures and tutorials, and provides a form of visual aid to theories which are often difficult to explain in words. Laboratory session aims to provide you with a hands-on practical experience in collecting, analysing and discussing experimental data in relation to the theories learned in lectures.

Course Content :

Learning Outcome :

By the end of this course, you would be able to:

  1. Carry out experiments and verify theories in CEE courses relating to fluid mechanics, environmental engineering, soil mechanics and mechanics of materials.
  2. Carry out investigative open-ended projects to include independent methodology to relate theories and principles to experimental results on various test apparatuses relating to above courses.
  3. Estimate percent uncertainty in experimental data and results.
  4. Analyse, interpret and infer from experimental data and results.
  5. Write a project report with professional and technical competency and clarity.

Reading and References :

Lab manuals will be provided at the beginning of the semester, which include related theories and test procedure, as well as lab report requirement.
