Drilling Laboratory

This laboratory focused on the measurement of physical characteristics and rheology from water base mud such as viscosity, yield point, gel strength, density, and lubricity. Not only drilling fluids, this laboratory also related to the measurement of the cement slurry properties such as consistency. This laboratory is used by sophomore students with the assistance of senior students.

This laboratory contains the following major pieces of equipment:
