Fluid Mechanics & Machines Lab
The Fluid Mechanics and Machines Lab is an indispensable supplement to the theory of Fluid Mechanics. It helps students to understand by performing experiments on the basic laws and equations used for analysis of static and dynamic fluids. The main activities of the Laboratory for Hydraulic Machines are teaching, research and service in the field of hydrodynamics of rotating machines such as hydraulic turbines, pumps, etc. Both theoretical and experimental aspects are investigated with a particular emphasis on the industrial applications such as the design, the installation and the operation of hydraulic machines. Measurements of critical Performance parameters like efficiency, flow rate etc. of various hydraulic machines such as turbines, pumps are also measured in this lab. The equipment is operated in a closed loop system which conserves water and averts the need for large quantities of water supply. A separate section is devoted to display cut models of different components of pumps and turbines.
