This lab is run in conjunction with the theory course Fluid Mechanics. It is an introductory course where flow behavior, fluid forces are introduced. The goals of the experiments include determination of forces generated when fluid flow takes place over a solid object, viscosity measurement and engineering correlations. Intricate flow phenomena such as separations and transition to turbulence are demonstrated. Experimental setups such as flow through a tube, flow over a flat plate, wind tunnel and viscometer are made available to the students. The lab experiments utilize U-tube manometer. The lab runs closely with the lectures in such a way that experiments support the text covered in the class room.
The Aerodynamics Laboratory has 1 sub sonic wind tunnel. The Wind Tunnel allows experimentation and investigation of air flow (i.e., aerodynamics) and is therefore a valuable resource for engineering Students .It is used to find Pressure distribution on airfoils and it is sensed by manometer. This lab is also equipped with water flow channel used for the purpose of flow visualization over different aerofoil.
