Objective of the course:


Modern mechanical engineering systems rely not only on in-depth analyses and design procedures, but have a substantial element of synthesis and integration of various interdisciplinary ideas and technologies. In this context, these two complementary courses envisage the application of analytical skills and design procedures learned by the students in the preceding semesters to synthesize a working prototype of a functional mechanical system, supported by the elements from other disciplines, as and when necessary. Through this course it is also expected that the students will get exposed to project management, teamwork, time management, system integration skills and other related human factors involved in the design and development cycle of an engineering system.

Course content:


ME 451N PROJECT-I

L-T-P-A[C]
0-0-9-0[9]

Project work involving the analysis, synthesis, material/component selection and detailed design of a mechanical system including the preparation of working drawings. The system may be integrated with electronics, electrical, hydraulic and other systems. Projects may be selected by students from any of the four specific areas  (or a combination there of)  Fluid mechanics and Thermal sciences, Solid Mechanics and Design, Manufacturing Science and Robotics and/or any other related mechanical system(s).


ME 452N PROJECT-II

L-T-P-A[C]
0-0-6-0[6]

Fabrication of a prototype and appropriate modification in the design (if necessary) to meet the qualitative and quantitative performance parameters as envisaged in the Project I
