MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT LABORATORIES
Heat Transfer Lab

Heat transfer is the science dealing with the transfer of energy in the form of heat from one body to another as a result of temperature difference between them. The science of heat transfer provides an explanation for the different modes of heat transfer and also enables one to predict the rate at which energy transfer takes place under specified conditions. These fundamentals will be used to link the phenomenological Heat transfer processes taking place in different engineering equipment. The lab consists of equipment for the measurement of thermal conductivity, convective and radiation behavior of different types of materials and objects in various conditions. The study of heat exchangers is also a part of this laboratory where heat transfer rate of different types of flows can be measured. The laboratory is helpful to the students in understanding various typical concepts of heat transfer by doing experimentation successive to the theory class. The equipment available in this laboratory is listed are

  • Heat exchanger – parallel flow
  • Heat exchanger – counter flow

Fuels & Oils Lab

Fuel is a combustible substance, containing carbon as main constituent, which on proper burning gives large amount of heat, which can be used economically for domestic and industrial purposes. Wood, charcoal, kerosene, petrol, diesel, producer gas, oil gas etc. are some of the fuels. Lubricants are used to reduce the friction between two moving parts and act as a seal between piston and cylinder. Quality of fuel and lubricant is very essential for the smooth running of the engine and efficiency of the engine under various conditions. Viscosity, flash and fire points are some of the characteristics which are essential for a good lubricant. Evaluations of these parameters for various lubricants are estimated in this laboratory. Calorific value and carbon residue are the other two important parameters for the fuel.

Workshop

The Engineering workshop is aimed to provide the basic working knowledge of the production and properties of different materials used in the industry and to apprise the student of basics and applications of various types of tools, equipment and techniques used in manufacturing to facilitate shaping of these materials into useful components.

The Engineering workshop should impart a good theoretical background as well as give a sound practical on hand practice to a student in various trades such as Carpentry, Fitting, House wiring and Tin smithy to serve the society in improving the living standards. Though engineers are not going to become carpenters or blacksmiths or skilled workmen on shop floor, but their exposure to these vocational trades provides them a bird’s eye view of basic practical activities associated with all branches of engineering

Design & Metrology Lab

Lord Kelvin, the renowned scientist, had the following to say about metrology:

"When you can measure what you are speaking about and express it in numbers, you know something about it, but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind".

Measurements have been carried out by humans for as long as civilization has existed. From the primitive population who lived in caves to modern man, the need has always been there to measure and know. Of course, all these measurements were approximate. With the development of civilization the need for more acceptable measurement grew. This led to the evolution of the standards of measures. Interestingly enough, even though we can now measure with much greater precision, the measurements are still "approximate" and will always have an element of "uncertainty".

Students are able to learn the measurement principles by doing Metrology laboratory experiments. The realistic knowledge on Tool Makers Microscope, Profile Projector, Sine bar, Gear tooth Vernier, Surface finish tester, Bore dial gauge and different gauges.
