The present invention provides a tiltmeter having adjustable resolution, which consists of two types of liquids with different color and different density and a measuring box in the middle to take readings. Tiltmeter (100) consists of two identical jars (10, 11), one measuring box (12) between the jars (10, 11), connecting pipes (13, 14) and two liquids of different density out of which one is colored (15) and the other one is transparent (16). Two jars (10, 11) are placed on the two place, where tilt/height change has to be find out. Measuring box (12) has a measuring glass tube (17) for the measurements of the tilt/height change. It measures the height difference between two points, and this height difference can be converted into the tilt, if distance between these two points is known. Chemically treated colored liquid is used in place of simple water with anti-corrosion, anti-freezing and low viscosity properties.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
