Laboratories

Department of Mechanical Engineering houses following laboratories and workshops to conduct experiments and research. 

 

1.  Aerodynamics Laboratory

 

 

 

 

 2.  Automobile Laboratory

 

 

 

 


 3.  Computer Laboratory

 

 

 

 


 4.  Engineering Graphics Laboratory/Drawing Hall

Sound understanding of the graphics language is a must for any well-trained engineer; “Engineering Graphics” laboratory provides the required environment to develop the essential skills of mechanical/instrumental drafting. In this laboratory, students develop an understanding of drafting and design concepts through class lectures, individual study and problem-solving activities. Laboratory exercises require the application of principles, concepts, techniques and standards relating to mechanical/instrumental drafting.

 5.  Energy Technology Laboratory

 

 

 

 


 6.  Engineering Mechanics Laboratory

This laboratory covers the fundamental concepts of Engineering Mechanics which should be taught to the student of Mechanical Engineering at the preliminary level. This includes the external forces on bodies and their external effects i.e dealing with rigid body mechanics only. Also, it deals with equilibrium of rigid bodies, forces on frames and machines, cables subjected to various loadings, friction on horizontal and inclined planes, forces on crane jib and simple suspension bridge along with simulation software for the demonstration of uniformly distributed loadings(UDL) and point load etc..

 7.  Fluid Mechanics Laboratory

Fluid Mechanics laboratory provides a “hands on” environment that is crucial for developing students understanding of theoretical concepts.
In fluid mechanics laboratory we observe the behaviour of fluid flow under different laws of Fluid Mechanics with state of the art equipment.

 8.  Heat Transfer Laboratory

 

 

 

 


 9.  Material Testing Laboratory

 

 

 

 


 10.  Mechanical Vibrations Laboratory

 

 

 

 


 11.  Mechanics of Machines Laboratory

This lab covers the fundamental concepts of mechanics of machines which should be taught to the student of mechanical engineering in order to analyze the motion of various mechanisms working in different machines, automobiles etc. This lab also coversthe study of transmission of power from the driving to the driven shaft using gears, gear trains etc.  Governors, Cams & followers, Brakes & clutches, Automobile differential and Balancing of reciprocating and rotating masses are also included in experimentation work conducted in this lab.
