Advanced Metrology Laboratory

Metrology is described as the science of measurement and the science of accuracy and precision and its application to the control of manufacturing processes or to produce quality products. If we cannot measure and trace at macro or micro scale, we cannot produce parts at macro or micro-scale. Lack of metrology knowledge would hinder successful conversion of micro or nanotechnology into real products. The demands of industrial surface metrology consist of both economic and scientific aspects. The products are to be produced at a faster rate, cheaply and easily and also should be reliable, comparable and reproducible.

The air conditioned laboratory with instruction room is equipped with advanced dimensional and form measuring equipments such CNC Co-ordinated Measuring Machine, Advanced Vision Inspection System and Electronic Height Gauge and Surface Roughness Tester apart from many other calibrated equipments for students to learn dimensional and form measurement various types of objects range from engine block to watch parts or micro needles to a resolution of 10 nm and an accuracy of better than one micrometer. The students also learn the process of calibration of measuring instruments, reverse engineering and Statistical Quality Control methods using various instruments available in the laboratory. The lab also provides facility for research & consultancy for staff and students of various campuses.

Microwave Processing Laboratory

Publication Count : 2 Journal and 3 Conference publications
Year of Establishment : 2021

An advanced material and manufacturing lab established in the Department of Mechanical Engineering with a single mode microwave processor. The microwave processor provides uniform heating of materials instead of non-uniform heating by conventional furnaces. Microwave sintering has emerged in recent years as a new method for sintering a variety of materials that has shown significant advantages against conventional sintering procedures. Many commercial powder-metal components of various alloy compositions including iron and steel, Copper, Aluminum, Nickel, Mo, Co, Ti, W, Sn, etc., and their alloys have been sintered in microwaves producing better properties than their conventional counterparts by using a 2.45GHz multi or single mode microwave System. Thus, this lab enables the researchers to develop various composite materials that give better mechanical properties in our own lab.

Aerodynamics Lab

Publication Count : 2 Journal and 6 Conference publications
Year of Establishment : 2016
The aerodynamics lab is equipped with advanced equipment for flow visualisation studies

Water channel flow visualisation equipment

A water channel apparatus is used for flow visualization studies on different flow patterns around different objects. It consists of a water tank with a dimension of 2.5 ×1.5 m and a depth of 150 mm. At one end of the table, two sets of aluminum discs (vanes) are located with suitable spacing between them and are rotated using a variable-speed DC motor. They act as paddles, and when they are rotated, they create a flow suitably guided to the test section where the models are placed. Two guides made of FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) with a height of 0.15 m are placed at a certain distance to guide the flow properly to the test section where the models are placed. The distance between the guides was set at 350mm. A wire mesh was placed between the guides to eliminate the vortices present in the incoming flow.

Research Activities: Analysis of flow patterns around different engineering structures, Investigation of reverse flow under different conditions.

Vortexing Equipment

Publication Count : 2 Journals and 2 conference papers
Year of Establishment : 2021

The vortexing equipment enables researchers to study these vortexing phenomena experimentally by creating vortexes in a transparent glass cylinder. In the current experimental setup, a rotational disturbance is imparted to the fluid filled in a cylindrical tank which is mounted on the rotating table as shown in the figure. Rotational disturbance is quantified by RPM, and it is controlled by the RPM controller. The cylinder is rotated for four minutes and draining is allowed through the drain port at the bottom. Using the graduated scale attached to the cylinder, critical height of air core is measured. Time of emptying the tank can also be measured using a stopwatch. The effect of these independent parameters on critical height and time of emptying is studied using this experimental setup.

Research Activities: Study of Rankine vortex formation during liquid draining from cylindrical tanks
