- Short Term courses
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 1996 and provides an outstanding academic environment complemented by excellence in teaching. The Department offers 4 years undergraduate course (B.E.).
“Strive to thrive for quality manpower who will contribute towards technological development in the field of mechanical engineering and socio-economy”.
The laboratory is equipped with a wide variety of instructional facilities in the area of refrigeration and air-conditioning. In the refrigeration major equipment includes mechanical heat pump, a single-stage, compression system with capillary and thermostat valve, ice plant, fault tutor, vapour absorption refrigeration system, air-conditioning unit and a collection of other demonstration components.
Objectives of lab
Understand the basic principles of refrigeration and air conditioning.
Analyse air refrigeration systems, vapour compression refrigeration systems, vapour absorption, refrigeration systems, and steam jet refrigeration systems.
Study the psychometric properties of air and utilize the principles of psychometric in the design of air conditioning equipment.
Finally, apply this knowledge for the design of refrigeration equipment’s and air conditioning equipment.
The Department has state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities bearing Gujarat Technological University (GTU) curriculum. Heat transfer is the transfer of thermal energy from one object or system to another, thus changing the temperature of each object. This process changes the thermal energy of both systems involved until thermal equilibrium is reached.
Thermal energy can be transferred within a given material or from one material to another through conduction. For gases or liquids, heat can be transferred within the material by convection. It can also be transferred indirectly by radiation. More than ten performance practical facilities are available for students.
The laboratory course is aimed to provide practical exposure to the students with regard to the determination of the amount of heat exchange in various modes of heat transfer, like conduction, convection, and radiation, including condensation & boiling for several geometries and their application
To classify the heat transfer problems and to apply the principles of steady-state one-dimensional heat transfer, extended surface, and unsteady state conduction for commonly encountered Mechanical engineering problems.
To identify the type of convection problems and to apply concepts of natural and forced convection for related problems
To explain various laws of radiation heat transfer and to determine the radiation heat transfer between black and grey surfaces of simple Mechanical systems
To practice LMTD and effectiveness-NTU method for simple heat exchange device
To identify types of boiling and condensation heat transfer process and to use the same to estimate heat transfer coefficient for simple cases.
The Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Lab of the mechanical engineering department is well-equipped with computers with 30 individual workstations & advanced facilities are established. High-end terminals supported by the latest hardware and software. The computers of the CAD laboratory are equipped with software like AutoCAD, Pro-E, Solid works, Hyperworks, ANSYS, MATLAB etc. Advanced mechanical engineering software is procured for making the students globally competitive and industry-ready. At the CAD lab, students get professional training on 2D drafting & 3D modeling of mechanical engineering drawings using the latest version of various software. The student will learn computer-aided design layout and 3D solid modeling definition. Students will also gain the knowledge of design and drafting needed for the mechanical engineering discipline.
The department of mechanical engineering has a complete range of specialized CAM laboratory with up-to-date equipment for teaching, learning and research purpose. This laboratory provides an environment for students to reinforce the fundamental principles of modern manufacturing systems and apply that knowledge through hands-on training for the current production technology. Our laboratory functioning with the following equipments.
I.CNC Turning Center
This industrial type design slant bed turning centre with 8 station programmable turret is the ideal machine tool for training our students and this machine can be compatible with Fanuc control system.
