The machine shop is both an engineer's laboratory and an artist's studio. Some operations require a lot of precision and planning and three dimensions, while others are more free form. Each material and each operation require different machines, but they all follow the same basic principles. By knowing the possibilities and limitations of the tools, you can better design the objects you create.
Materials testing is a respected and established technique which is used to ascertain both the physical and mechanical properties of raw materials and components. It can be used to examine almost anything from human hair to steel, ceramics or composite materials. Objective is to give a broad understanding of common materials related to mechanical engineering with an emphasis on the fundamentals of structure-property-application relationships.
This lab provides the basic working knowledge of the production and properties of different materials used in the industry. It also explains the use of different tools, equipments, machinery and techniques of manufacturing, which ultimately facilitate shaping of these materials into various usable forms.
Workshop technology is the type of technology which deals with different processes by which component of a machine or equipment are made. Its purpose is that the module unit is designed to equip the trainee with knowledge, skills and attitude that enable to perform basic workshop tasks.
The Computer center provides software's for Computer Aided Engineering drawing (CAED), Computer Aided Machine Drawing (CAMD). CAED helps students to develop a creative and analytical thinking of engineering drawing. It gives a different dimension for students to acquire knowledge of Engineering drawing and use of software for drawing. Students study basic drawing elements like lines, points, planes, solids and development of different geometrical shapes. CAMD is advancement in engineering drawing dealing with different Mechanical components like joints, fasteners and assemblies, sections of solids, IC engine pistons, connecting rod, Plummer Block, Tail Stock, Rams Bottom Safety Valves, Screw Jack etc. CAMD lab equipped with 20KVA battery back up and LED Projector.
This course will provide a basic understanding of fuel properties and its measurements using various types of measuring devices Energy conversion principles, analysis and understanding of IC Engines will be discussed. Application of these concepts for these machines will be demonstrated. Performance analysis will be carried out using characteristic curves. Exhaust emissions of I C Engines will be measured and compared with the standards.
Design Lab Provides a brief insight about the vibrational characteristics and Experiments on experimental strain, governors, balancing, photo elastic materials and journal bearings. It helps in understanding the behavior of different damping medium and effect of vibration, un-balancing etc. Also it gives a demo on critical speeds and its impact on vibration.
Metrology is concerned with the establishment, reproduction, conservation and transfer of units of measurement & their standards. For engineering purposes, metrology is restricted to measurements of length and angle & quantities which are expressed in linear or angular terms.
Metrology is a science of measurement. Metrology may be divided depending upon the quantity under consideration into: metrology of length, metrology of time etc. Depending upon the field of application it is divided into industrial metrology, medical metrology etc. Engineering metrology is restricted to the measurement of length, angles and other quantities which are expressed in linear or angular terms. For every kind of quantity measured, there must be a unit to measure it. This will enable the quantity to be measured in number of that unit. Further, in order that this unit is followed by all; there must be a universal standard and the various units for various parameters of importance must be standardized.
Heat Transfer laboratory provides fundamental and industrial knowledge about modes of heat transfer, like conduction, convection and radiation, and their application. Heat Transfer Lab consists of the following equipments. Pin Fin Apparatus: This setup is designed to study the heat transfer in a pin fin. It consists of cylindrical fin fitted to the base in rectangular duct. A blower is provided on one side of duct to conduct experiments under forced convection heat transfer mode. Five thermocouples are embedded along the axis of the cylindrical fin at five different locations and one thermocouple placed in the air stream at the exit of the test section to measure the outlet air temperature. Digital Temperature Indicator is provided to read temperatures distribution along the fin. Test pipe is connected to the delivery side of the blower along with the Orifice to measure flow of air through the pipe. A heater heats one end of fin and heat flows to another end. Heat input to the heater is given through variac. Students will be expected to develop the following skills/understanding upon the successful completion of this experiment.
CAMA lab handles the finite elemental analysis of bars of constant and tapered cross sections which include stress analysis, thermal analysis, and dynamic analysis when subjected to natural or forced conditions. CIM lab deals with the simulation of CNC operations with computer assisted part programming for CNC Turning or Milling. CAMA lab equipped with 10KVA battery back up and LED Projector.
It is an introductory course where flow behaviour, fluid forces and analysis tools are introduced. The goals of the experiments include determination of forces generated when fluid flow takes place over a solid object, applications of the control volume approach, demonstration of the momentum and energy equations, viscosity measurement and engineering correlations. Intricate flow phenomena such as separations and transition to turbulence are demonstrated. Experimental setups such as flow through a tube, flow over a flat plate, wind tunnel, smoke tunnel and viscometer are made available to the students. The lab experiments utilize U-tube manometer and digital manometer, a hot-wire anemometer system and data acquisition. The lab runs closely with the lectures in such a way that experiments support the text covered in the class room.
