LABS AND COMPUTING
Being a student from a core area, presentation, problem solving, developing and analytical thinking is very essential where he/ she reflect the society. Designing plays a major where information can be conveyed by just by drawings. It is a central facility common to all first year B.Tech students in School of Engineering. Each Drafting lab is well furnished. This lab develops and gives hands on experience on introduction to engineering graphics and drafting tools, geometric construction, dimensions, hatching and text along with conic sections, special curves and orthographic projection.
The CAD laboratory in university is a central facility available with the school of Mechanical Engineering, wherein all the section of students from the School (UG & PG), research scholars and faculty can work with 2-D and 3-D design and analysis packages. Students are encouraged to learn, practice and apply the knowledge gained for the design point of view.
The CAD lab provides 90 plus digitally integrated systems with licensed software environment and air conditioned system where the users can design, analyze, simulate and build components. The laboratory has the following software auto cad, Catia, Ansys, Matlab. Configuration for the 90 plus systems is integrated with core 2 duo, 1 GB Ram, 160 GB hard disk, 17″ monitor.
Dynamics of Machine Lab
The objective of this lab is to impart practical knowledge on design and analysis of mechanisms in the machine tools. Dynamics of machine lab offers the students in conducting the experiments related to theory subjects like kinematics and dynamics of machines. Different equipment like governors, gyroscopes and universal vibration facilities are available to understand machine dynamics. Students are made to acquaint the knowledge in determining the profile of cam using cam analysis apparatus, coriolis component of acceleration, journal bearing apparatus, apparatus for generation of gear tooth profile by use of rack & pinion cutter, epicyclic gear train apparatus.
Fluid Machines/Fluid Mechanics Lab
The Fluid mechanics laboratory consists of flow measurement devices, head loss measurement in pipe flow, impact of water jet on vanes, flow visualization apparatus, hydraulic pumps and turbines. Fluid mechanics lab and course helps the students in understanding the terminology, recall the basic principles and understand the importance and the rate of the discharge. Students will demonstrate the experiment from the theoretical knowledge gained from fluid mechanics and try to observe the readings to familiarize the working principle with performance calculations.
Mechanical Measurement/Material Technology Lab
Metrology is the science of measurement. Metrology Lab is equipped with various measuring instruments and gauges. It makes the students to understand the basic principle involved in measuring process that suits for the respective product and its importance in the quality control. The experiments are based on geometrical measurements, form measurements using various basic measuring instruments like digital and manual reading vernier, micrometer, temperature measurement, number of revolutions reading using non-contact tachometer and dial gauges etc. The experiments are designed where students are exposed to learn about the error involved in the measurements, calibration of measuring instruments.
Thermal science is a major part of the mechanical engineering where students made to familiarize the basic concepts of thermal sciences. From the knowledge gained by the other courses like thermal engineering and automobile engineering students shall understand the principle in propelling the vehicle. To have a glance view of the internal components and understand the passage of the fuel and generation of power the laboratory is well-found by the actual cut section of 4 stroke signal cylinder vertical diesel engine, actual cut section of 2 stroke signal cylinder scooter engine, actual cut section of 4 stroke single cylinder motorcycle engine, 4-stroke single cylinder diesel engine with hydraulic dynamometer test rig, 4-stroke 4-cylinder petrol engine with hydraulic dynamometer test rig. The lab atmosphere tends the student to be emotional and develops the zeal towards the branch of mechanical engineering.
Refrigeration Air Conditioning Lab
Lab is designed where it unveils the basic concepts of refrigeration and air conditioning systems, analysis of various refrigeration cycles, basic calculation of psychometric properties and process. The lab work is designed in displaying the various components of a refrigeration system and the principle in utilizing the medium to cool the objects. Undergoing the study of this lab enables the student to estimate and design the air conditioning system where a human can feel comfort. Lab is procured with refrigeration cycle test rig, air conditioning test rig, water heat pump test rig, vapor absorption test rig and cut section of control board. Facility avails students to performance test on vapor compressor rig using thermostatic expansion valve, using capillary tube expansion valve, test on air-conditioning test rig. Lab relates to understand the household/domestic refrigerator, usage of different types of refrigerants,
Automobile Engineering Lab
Mechanical Engineering department had propelled the lab facilities and experiments are designed for comprehensive study of vehicle components & their operation. The department procures Maruti Suziki 800 Car, all the assemblies like engine, transmission, brake System, gear box system engine cooling system, air intake system etc. are assembled and disassembled in order to enhance the knowledge of students and show case them the internal assemblies & parts. Actual cut section of carburetor, examining the brake system of an automobile, steering system for light weight motor vehicle are some of the key practical’s that are performed.
Heat and Mass Transfer Lab
Heat and mass transfer lab is designed for students to make them understand the principles of conduction, convection and radiation. Course mainly focuses on transfer of heat from one region to the other region. After having a theoretical knowledge students use the lab facilities in measuring the thermal conductivity of insulating powder, measure the thermal conductivity of composite slab, heat transfer in natural and forced convection apparatus. Students are made to recognize and set the parameters for various apparatus to calculate the emissive measurement apparatus, parallel flow/counter flow heat exchanger, and critical heat apparatus
Workshop lab environment is surrounded by ample of varieties of tools where students are made to use the tools and perform useful components. The lab is integrated with several conventional machines and non-conventional machine. Curriculum is designed in such a way where students are a part of different labs like Manufacturing Process-I, Manufacturing Process-II, Production Technology and Advance Manufacturing Process. Primary manufacturing operation like casting, forming and welding secondary manufacturing processes the principles of various machines, where metal removal is involved lathe, milling, shaper, planar, slotter, shaper, grinding machines for various finishing applications, vertical milling center for electric discharge machining as a part of non-conventional machine. 365 days the workshop tools are used either by students for lab work and project work or for the maintenance of university infrastructure and labs
