Mechanical Engineering Department - Laboratories


Theory Of Machines Lab

Objectives of this lab are to impart practical knowledge on design and analysis of mechanisms for the specified type of motion in a machine. With the study of rigid bodies motions and forces for the transmission systems, machine kinematics and dynamics can be well understood. Demonstration exercises are provided with wide varieties of transmission element models to understand machine kinematics. Various experiments with governors, gyroscopes, balancing machines and universal vibration facilities are available to understand machine dynamics.


This lab has basic fluid mechanics set-up. The lab is equipped with different flow measuring set-ups such as venturimeter, orifice-plate, pitot tube, rotometer, Reynolds’s setup, free-forced vortices setup, flow over open channel and impact of jet set-up etc., where students can visualize the basic theory of working of the flow meter. The lab also has Kaplan turbine, Francis turbine, reciprocating compressor & Centrifugal pump setup etc., where students can visualize the basic theory of working.


The aim of laboratory is to teach the basic applications of basic laws of thermodynamics, process of energy conversion in I.C. engines. The internal combustion engine is a rich source of examples of almost every conceivable type of heat transfer. There are a wide range of temperatures and heat fluxes in the various components of the internal combustion engine. The testing of engine is necessary to verify the performance of the engine as per the specification of the manufacturer. Exhaust gas analysis necessary for to control emissions like carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons and to ensure complete combustion of fuel as far as possible also to control max. temperatures of combustion products by varying air fuel ratios. Student will be able to 1. Understand the performance parameters in evaluation of IC engine 2. Calculate the speed of IC engine, fuel consumption, air consumption, etc., 3. Evaluate the exhaust smoke and exhaust emission
