Connecting Science and Technology for a brighter tomorrow

The Applied Civil Engineering Group of CSIR – North East Institute of Science & Technology (Formerly RRL-Jorhat) is committed to research & development, technical consultancy, testing and evaluation of building and road materials. The main areas of research include geotechnical and transportation engineering and have expertise in geo-technical and transportation engineering. This group is presently involved in R&D work for stabilization of Brahmaputra river bed materials for use in road construction and modular brick for building structures. The group is also involved in seismic vulnerability and risk assessment of buildings of major cities in NE India. The group also renders technical consultancy services for soil investigation and evaluation of roads, and testing and evaluation services for road & building materials including soil, cement, concrete, aggregates, brick and other construction materials. The department had contributed towards R&D activities in development of ferro-cement products, low cost housing techniques, light roofing sheets, water filter candles from paddy husk and also in the sector of structural engineering. Over the years, Applied Civil Engineering Group provided technical consultancy services in the field of civil engineering for soil investigation and road evaluation to many organizations in the north east particularly in the sector of construction, testing and evaluation for quality control of materials.
