Labs

The students get an understanding of nature of flow past various models through flow visualization techniques. The nature of pressure distribution over various aerofoil and body shapes is explained. The wake and boundary layer survey provide information on the momentum thickness and displacement thickness.
Practical knowledge and techniques of Foundry & Forging are demonstrated and practised.
Students obtain hands-on experience in machining skills.
The practical knowledge on measurement techniques is achieved.
Students obtain hands-on experience in material testing techniques.
The CFD analysis and stress analysis techniques are developed through computer software.
Experiments related to aircraft engines, force measurements through wall jets and measurement of speed of flame propagation is checked.
Several time motion studies are made increasing students’ capability in simulation techniques.
It provides the student with the practical knowledge of the various theorems, like reciprocal theorem, buckling phenomenon of columns, WEGNER beam stresses information. The vibration of beam equipment provides information on types of nodes and vibration patterns.

CLUBS

The UAV Club helps the students to learn and understand the design and fabrication of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It encompasses the application of Aerodynamics and Stability in a real aircraft model and helps the students to get a hands-on understanding in Aeronautical Engineering. The Club conducts workshops for helping the students in fabricating these model aircrafts. The Club has signed a MoU with Avian Aerospace and they are setting up a UAV LAB in the campus. Our students have created many models of different types via Quad copters, Hex copters and fixed wing aircrafts which are in the UAV lab and are to be modified to improve their performance.

The Aero Modelling club comprises the glider section; the wire-controlled, powered, fixed-wing aircraft models section; the remotely-controlled fixed-wing aircraft flight simulator section; and the remotely-controlled fixed-wing aircraft section. Students fabricate models from balsa wood and assemble knocked-down kits. The college regularly organises aero modellers’ meets, participates in competitions, and plans to develop more futuristic models. The Aero Modelling Club will soon include activities involving RC helicopters, aircraft with auto stabilisers and jet engine-powered models.
