MANAV RACHNA INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF RESEARCH AND STUDIES
(Formerly MANAV RACHNA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY )
The lab courses included in the syllabus initiate a student to experimentally check the correctness of the analytical results studied in the theory courses and thus can be considered as the initial phase of practical. The lab facilities comprise of a subsonic open circuit wind tunnel, flow visualization facilities, a water table, hot-wire anemometry system, propeller test rig, experimental set up for measuring shear centre, torsion and bending stresses, diffused light polariscope for stress analysis, flame propagation apparatus and flight dynamics modelling & computational software (ANSYS student version) is available for mathematical modeling of aeronautical engineering problems. These are adequate to meet the course curriculum requirements of the ongoing B.Tech.(Aero) programme and to undertake very limited research work. The department also has certain aircraft assemblies, sub systems and instruments of a crashed frontline fighter aircraft, and models of various aircraft and jet-engine. The students assemble exotic configurations of aero-models and fly them so as to study the effect of aerodynamic features and structural integrity of such aircraft configurations. The computational facility in the department has specialized software like ANSYS and lab courses are also conducted on the use of modeling/ simulation software’s like, GAMBIT/ FLUENT, MATLAB, CATIA, and CREO. Broadly, the lab infrastructure can be categorized into seven specialization of aeronautical engg.
- Basics of Aeronautical Engg lab
- Aircraft Propulsion Lab
- Aerodynamics Lab
- Project Lab.
- Aero modelling Lab.
- Aircraft Structures and Materials Lab
- Aeronautical Computational Lab
The faculty and students work in collaboration with other departments of FET. Other facilities include workshops and Laboratories for Energy Conversion, Fluid Mechanics, Measurements and Metrology, Materials Testing. Flight Simulation and Aeromodelling Laboratories .
All the labs have various test equipment to conduct experiments as per the current curriculum. A brief description of existing laboratory facilities is given below.
