Mechanical measurements lab gives a technical ambience and familiarization of various precision, calibration and measurement equipment used in the mechanical industry and provides hands-on training with testing and measurement of various specimens using the precision instruments available in lab. The various parameters measured using the instruments include torque, vibration levels, sound levels, temperature, rotating speed, relative humidity and so on. Profile projector with high magnification ranges is available for measurement and accuracy testing of various threads.

List of Experiments

  1. Torque measurement and calibration
  2. Vibration measurement and calibration
  3. Linear variable differential transducer
  4. Speed measurement and calibration
  5. Measurement of thread parameters using profile projector
  6. Humidity measurement using sling psychrometer
  7. Noise level measurement using digital sound level meter
  8. Measurements using micrometer and vernier caliper
  9. Temperature measurement and calibration using thermocouple
  10. Polar planimeter

Heat Engines lab helps the students to familiarize with various types of IC engines (both petrol and diesel) and conducting load tests on them. The lab also has Refrigeration and Air Conditioning test rigs as well as facilities to analyse and understand heat flow during various processes. The student also can also determine the absolute and kinematic viscosity of oils.

List of Experiments

Performance test on Two-stage Air Compressor, Load test on Four-stroke Diesel engine, Load test on Four-stroke Petrol engine, Performance test on Refrigeration test rig, Performance test on Air Conditioning test rig and so on…

A machine tool is a machine for shaping or machining metal or other rigid materials according to the design provided, usually by cutting, boring, grinding, shearing, or other forms of deformation. The Machine Tool lab provides the students with a chance to study and operate different machine tools like lathe and drilling machine. The students are trained to manufacture a product on the basis of a design provided that covers operations like centering, turning, thread cutting, etc. Advanced Machine Tool Lab, which is a continuation of the Machine Tool lab, is equipped with machines like shaper and slotter. The students are also given the chance for hands on experience in part programming in Computer Numerical Control machines

Fluid mechanics is one of the core sections in the Mechanical Engineering field dealing with the fluid properties, type of flow and the equations governing the behaviour of fluid. The students are given exposure to the various theory portions covered in the syllabus by the experiments arranged in the Lab. This well-equipped lab is suitable for conducting various experiments related to the basics of fluid mechanics, fluid flow and flow measurement. Students are given the best opportunity to clearly understand the concepts they were taught in Fluid Mechanics theory.

The Hydraulic Machines Lab provides the students an ample opportunity to familiarise with both pumps and turbines. The lab is equipped with various pumps that come across in our day to day life such as centrifugal pump, reciprocating pump, gear pump and so on… The lab is also equipped with commonly used turbines in power generation like Pelton Wheel, Kaplan and Francis Turbines. In short, Hydraulic Machines Lab helps the students to understand the working of pumps and turbines in detail.

Workshop in charge : Mr. Cleetus P.R
The Mechanical Engineering Workshop was established at the institute in the year 2012. The Workshop is organised into 4 sections – Fitting, Carpentry, Smithy and Foundry- and is housed at the administrative block. There is also provision for study of some basic machine tools and for obtaining weld joints. This workshop will cater to the requirements of first year students. The activities of the workshop are coordinated by the faculties of the department with the help of lab staff. The present facility can be utilized by 66 students at a time. The students get to know the conventional methods by doing the experiments on their own.
