Design of Soak Pit

 Design of Soak Pit 

A soak pit is an underground structure that is designed to receive and manage surface water or wastewater. It is also known as a soakaway, septic tank soakaway, or drainage field. The purpose of a soak pit is to allow the water to slowly infiltrate into the surrounding soil, where it can be naturally filtered and purified. There are several different types of soak pits, but they generally consist of a large hole or pit that is filled with gravel or other permeable material. The pit is usually lined with a layer of concrete or other impermeable material to prevent the water from seeping out into the surrounding soil too quickly.

The size and design of a soak pit will depend on a variety of factors, including the amount of water that needs to be managed, the soil type and drainage characteristics of the site, and local regulations and building codes. Soak pits can be used to manage a variety of types of water, including storm water runoff, wastewater from septic systems or greywater from households. They are often used in areas where there is no access to a municipal sewer system or where the cost of connecting to such a system is prohibitively expensive. Proper maintenance is important to ensure that a soak pit continues to function properly. This may include periodic cleaning to remove.

Multimedia Learning (ICT Classroom):

Introduction:  In this, the teacher will deliver some concepts with the aid of Software tools. These learning tools play a vital role in delivering subject knowledge. The students can identify the key points of the presentation in an easy way. Live demonstration can be an effective tool to present material in the classroom and encourage student learning. Multimedia combines basic types of media into a learning environment such as text, audio, video and graphics thus providing a powerful tool for teaching. This allows the students to pay more attention towards the concepts. It also helps the students to think and analyze the concepts in a better way.  Execution Plan:  The teacher explains some topics in their regular teaching process using Software Tools /Animation / Videos to simplify their presentation.  Outcomes:  1. Simple way of presenting subject knowledge than from the regular teaching practices.  2. Students can understand the concepts in a better way. Google Classroom User Manu

Civil Engineering : Project Based Learning

Method: Project work and Report writing The department has made it a mandatory requirement for every student to design and conduct a project, right from the fifth semester onwards which is beyond the regular curriculum for the semester. This helps the student to have a hands-on approach to the engineering design process and utilize the theoretical aspects they have learnt to develop prototypes and design experiments on what they have learnt. During the fifth semester, the students conduct a mini-project that focuses on the fundamental software design aspects of computer Science and Engineering. A project group consisting of a maximum of four members under the guidance of a faculty member explores a scientific principle related to their area of interest. The learning process is given more weightage during the assessment and not the results obtained.  Students in their sixth semester are encouraged to do a project which will help them to learn new technical skills with guidance from an a

  Group Discussion among the students Group discussions can be a powerful learning tool for students, as they offer several advantages and benefits. Here are some of the most significant impacts of group discussions: Improved Communication Skills: Group discussions provide students with an opportunity to express their thoughts and ideas in a collaborative environment. Through active listening and respectful communication, students can enhance their communication skills, including clarity, concision, and persuasion. Enhanced Critical Thinking: Group discussions encourage students to think critically and examine multiple perspectives on a particular topic. By engaging in constructive dialogue and debate, students learn to analyze and evaluate information, challenge assumptions, and develop reasoned arguments. Increased Engagement and Participation: Students who participate in group discussions are more engaged and invested in th
