Laboratories - Mechanical Engineering

Computer Aided Design Laboratory

The Computer Aided Design (CAD) Lab of mechanical engineering department is well-equipped with computers with 28 individual workstations & advanced facilities are established. High end terminals supported by latest hardware and software’s. The computers of CAD laboratory are equipped with software like AutoCAD, Inventor, ANSYS, MATLAB etc. Advanced mechanical engineering software’s are procured for making the students globally competitive and industry ready. At CAD lab, students get professional training on 2D drafting & 3D modeling of mechanical engineering drawings using the latest version of AutoCAD software. Student will learn computer aided design layout and 3D solid modelling definition. Students will also gain the knowledge of design and drafting needed for mechanical engineering discipline.

Computer Integrated Manufacturing Laboratory

CIM & Robotics laboratory incorporates computerized numerical control machines and pneumatically operated industrial robot. The objective of this laboratory is to familiarize the students about CNC codes to perform automatic turning and milling jobs. Students are trained to write part program by their own with visualization or simulation of tool movement. Programming of robot explores fundamentals of axis designation and movement on different axis of robot according to nature of program to students. It also helps to develop a platform to understand artificial intelligence.

Fluid Mechanics Laboratory

The Fluid Mechanics Laboratory runs in conjunction with the theory course fluid mechanics. It is an introductory course where flow behavior, 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, 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 Bernoulli’s experiment, V-notch, U- Notch, Friction of pipe, Reynolds’s experiments, Rotameter experiment, Orifice Meter, Venturimeter etc. are made available to the students. The lab runs closely with the lectures in such a way that experiments support the text covered in the class room.

Fluid Power Engineering Laboratory

The FPE laboratory has given immense practical exposure of fluid power and hydraulics of machines which includes impulse turbine and two types of reaction turbines i.e. Kaplan turbine and Francis turbine. Moreover, this turbine setup is used to find efficiency of the turbine by practical readings. Additionally, this laboratory has different types of centrifugal pumps for instance single stage, double stage and variable speed, and gear pump setup. Practical setup of impact of jet gives basic idea and behavior of jet on different types of stationary and moving plates. All laboratory equipment’s are equipped with require storage tank and well-mannered drainage system.

Strength of Material Laboratory

The SOM laboratory has the objective to familiarize the student to find out different material properties of a specimen. It is useful for fundamental understanding of the concepts of stress and strain by analysis of solids and structures, study engineering properties of materials like fatigue, hardness, toughness, force-deformation and stress-strain relationship, and also to analyze tensional members and beams to determine axial forces, torque, shear forces, bending moments, slopes and deflection. Perform engineering work in accordance with ethical and economic constraints related to the design of structures and machine parts.

Dynamics Of Machines Laboratory

The DOM laboratory deals with various experiments related to machine dynamics which includes equipment like governors, gyroscope, whirling of shaft, linear, lateral and torsional vibration (damped and undamped) to get the hands on practice.

Heat and Mass Transfer Laboratory

This laboratory deals with objective of study different modes involved in heat transfer. It involves different experimentation with regards to conduction, convection and radiation paves of heat transfer process. The governing equations formulated in lecture sessions are usually made to apply with different boundary conditions to a particular set of equipment to find required parameters of equation. It also gives idea of basic idea of conduction calculations with steady and unsteady modes. Convection process (forced and natural) are made to familiar to the students with appropriate set up giving brief idea of handling heat transfer calculation in different applications. Also it deals with calculations of radiation heat transfer part which is again a important mode of heat transfer which has wide applications in industry.
