The lab includes the study of systems related to various modes of heat transfer, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. The lab also aims to educate students on various governors, gyroscope, vibration apparatus.
This lab emphasizes the use of different types of machines used in production field and makes the students apt for the industry. This lab gives students relevant exposure in the use of advanced machine tools like shaping machine, slotting machine and milling machines. Together with machine tools lab, it aims at enhancement of practical skills as well as development of awareness about machine upkeep, safety practices etc. To study the principle of operation, work holding and different operations of reciprocating machines like slotter and shaper. This lab acknowledges the scope of Computers in production technology and different expert systems used in manufacturing.
This lab gives students relevant exposure to important machining processes that are in use in the industry. It gives hands on experience in the use of the Lathes, drilling machine and welding equipment’s (TIG, MIG and Gas Welding). Lab also gives knowledge on CNC lathe machine and thereby can also gain knowledge in CNC part programming.
Applications of Mechanical and Electronic Instruments in Process industry are studied. The lab is equipped with various measuring and control equipment like Pressure Gauge, Temperature Measuring Devices, Torque Sensor, Displacement Measuring Device, Various Strain gauges, Speed measuring Device, stroboscope, Force measuring Device, etc.
This lab aims at introducing relevant measurement systems and equipment’s that are used on the shop floor and in calibration rooms. Basic knowledge about the usage of measuring devices, their calibration and measurement standards are imparted to the students.
In this laboratory, students will have the opportunity to study the working principle of IC engines (both SI and CI engines), performance and characteristics in terms of heat balancing, economical speed variations, air fuel ratio influence on the engine to reinforce classroom theory by having the student perform required tests, analyze subsequent data, and present the results in a professionally prepared report. The machines and equipment used to determine experimental data include cut models of 4stroke diesel engine, 2stroke petrol engine, 4stroke and two stroke petrol engines with required. Specifications, Multi cylinder SI engine, Single cylinder Diesel engine for performance and speed test which is suitable to tests on variable compression ratios.
Thermal Engineering Lab 2 trains the students with principles and operations of thermal engineering equipment’s. The different modes of heat transfer like conduction, convection and radiation phenomenon are studied with the help of experiments and equipment’s available in the laboratory which are used in real time engineering applications.
The lab provides working knowledge on Computer Aided Design methods and procedures. It impart training on Auto CAD, solid modelling and analysis software.
The main aim of this lab is to train the students in solid modelling, surface modelling, assembly modelling, mechanism design and drafting. The latest version of modelling software 3D experience is used in the lab. CAD Lab is also equipped with structural and CFD analysis softwares like ANSYS 19 which helps students to conduct numerical analysis on complex structures and fluid flow problems.
This Lab is intended to make the students aware of the all the aspects which comes under the fluid flow. The Fluid Mechanics and Machines Lab is an indispensable supplement to the theory of Fluid Mechanics. It helps students to understand by performing experiments on the basic laws and equations used for analysis of static and dynamic fluids. The experiments include flow measurement, practical applications of the basic principles of fluid mechanics and the study of major tools used. The fluid mechanics lab comprises of the performance tests of pumps and load tests on turbine test rigs.The main activities of the Laboratory for Hydraulic Machines are teaching, research and service in the field of hydrodynamics of rotating machines such as hydraulic turbines, pumps, etc.
Both theoretical and experimental aspects are investigated with a particular emphasis on the industrial applications such as the design, the installation and the operation of hydraulic machines. Measurements of critical Performance parameters like efficiency, flow rate etc. of various hydraulic machines such as turbines, pumps are also measured in this lab. The equipment is operated in a closed loop system which conserves water and averts the need for large quantities of water supply. A separate section is devoted to display cut models of different components of pumps and turbines.
