Aeronautical – Infrastructure

The department has the following state-of-the-art laboratories,  Aerodynamics Lab, Energy Conversion Lab, Foundry&Forging Lab,  Machine Shop, Material Testing Lab, Metrology Lab, Propulsion  Lab, Structures Lab etc.

MiG 27 Fighter Jet

The Aeronautical Engineering department provides hands-on experience with MiG-27 variable sweep ground attack aircraft. The aircraft was built by the Soviet Union and later license produced in India by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. The students understand the complete airframe structure in the campus and study design requirements, provisions to mount subsystems as well as control systems.

Hands on Experience in Flight Simulator

The Aeronautical Engineering department provides hands on experience with Flight simulators on the campus. This helps students artificially re-create aircraft flight and the environment in which it flies for pilot training, design or other purposes. Students understand how aircraft fly, how they react to applications of flight controls, the effects of other aircraft systems.

Subsonic Wind Tunnel

The students get an understanding of the nature of flow past various aircraft models through flow visualization techniques. The wind tunnel gives accurate results and is suitable for undergraduate study and research projects.

Aircraft Engines

Pratt Whitney R1830 Twin Engine and MiG 21 Turbojet:
Students understand the engine airframe components and structure materials of these engines in the campus.

Laboratory Facilities

Aerodynamics Lab:

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.

Structures Lab:

It provides the student with the practical knowledge of the various theorems, like -reciprocal theorem, buckling phenomenon of columns, WAGNER beam stresses information. The vibration of beam equipment provides information on types of modes and vibration patterns.

Propulsion Lab:

Experiments related to aircraft engines, force measurements through wall jets and measurement of speed of flame propagation is checked.
