Mechanical Engineering

About the Department

Mechanical engineering emerged as a field during the industrial revolution in Europe in the 18th century; however, its development can be traced back several thousand years around the world. Mechanical engineering science emerged in the 19th century as a result of developments in the field of physics. The field has continually evolved to incorporate advancements in technology, and mechanical engineers today are pursuing developments in such fields as composites, mechatronics, and nanotechnology. Today we found on the globe the majority of technical works are carried by Mechanical Engineering irrespective of the type of work. Mechanical engineering overlaps with aerospace engineering, metallurgical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, petroleum engineering, manufacturing engineering, chemical engineering, and other engineering disciplines to varying amounts. Mechanical engineers may also work in the field of Biomedical engineering, specifically with biomechanics, transport phenomena, biomechatronics, bionanotechnology and modeling of biological systems, like soft tissue mechanics. Since most of the works carried out by Mechanical graduates the demand for this branch has increased in the market since its inception.

The Effect of Heat and Cryogenic Treatment on Some Mechanical and Wear Properties of 6061 Al alloy. 
Aluminium alloy 6061 is one of the most extensively used of the 6000 series aluminium alloys. It is a versatile heat treatable extruded alloy with medium to high strength capabilities. Aluminium alloys are divided into casting alloys and wrought alloys, and are best suited for different applications. Wrought aluminium alloys, such as the 6061 alloy, are worked by extruding, rolling or forging them into specified shapes. Some alloys can be heat-treated or cold-worked by different methods to increase their strength and hardness, corrosion resistance, ease of fabrication and other advantages. The common grades of commercial 6061 aluminium are 6061-0, 6061-T4, and 6061-T6; however, tempers up to -T9 are produced conditions and good corrosion resistance to sea water. This alloy also offers good finishing characteristics and responds well to anodizing; however, where cosmetic appearance is critical, consider the use of alloy 6063. The most common anodizing methods include clear, clear and color dye, and hard coat.  Alloy 6061can be easily welded and joined by various commercial methods. (Caution: direct contact by dissimilar metals can cause galvanic corrosion.) Since 6061 is a heat-treatable alloy, strength in its -T6 condition can be reduced in the weld region. Selection of an appropriate filler alloy will depend on the desired weld characteristics. Consult the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for proper safety and handling precautions when using alloy 6061. 


Studies On Corrosion Behaviour Of Sic Reinforced 
AA 7075 Nano Composites

Aluminium is a soft silver colour, ductile and malleable metal that is abundant in the earth’s crust. It is impossible to keep it in its pure form without chemical reactions, when exposed to air it directly forms an oxide layer on the surface which will act as a protective shield from further oxidation. It has a relatively low density compared to other metals which makes it one of the best choices for manufacturing components used in light weight applications. Al in its pure form is not applicable due to many factors of which the most important is the relatively low strength. That’s why different Al based alloys and composites have been developed to enhance these factors while keeping most of the desired properties of the base metal (Al) present in the formed alloy or composite. Demand for developing metal matrix composites for use in high performance applications have been significantly increased in these days.  Among these composites, aluminium alloy matrix composites attract much attention due to their lightness, high strength to weight ratio, good thermal conductivity, excellent casting characteristics, etc.  Superior properties of various ceramic materials (SiC, Al2O3, MgO, B4C etc) such as refractoriness, high hardness, high compressive strength, wear resistance, etc. makes them suitable for use as reinforcement in matrix of composites. They find applications in automobile, electronic and computer industries to replace the existing materials including plastics. The early 1990s are considered to be the renaissance for Al as structural material due to environmental concerns, increasing safety and comfort levels. A significant improvement in the properties of Al alloys, reduced fuel consumption because of Lightweight has made huge demand from automobile industry.  These growing requirements of materials with high specific mechanical properties with weight savings has fuelled significant research activities in recent times targeted primarily for further development of Al based composites. 
 Nano-composite materials are multiphase materials obtained through the artificial combination of different materials in order to attain properties that the individual components by themselves cannot attain. If a relatively graphitic kind of carbon fiber is used, the thermal conductivity can also be enhanced significantly.

Title : “Emperical modelling, Parametric optimization and Prediction of cutting tool life” 


High machine utilization, high manufacturing flexibility and reliable adaptive control are key factors in a flexible manufacturing system (FUMS). With the increase in automation and use of computer control in machine tools, the number of cutting tools per machining setup is on the increase. On one hand, such multi-tool setups offer the advantages of reduced down-time and cost of production and require less space and in-process inventory, and on the other hand, require proper tool management for economic operations. A number of strategies have been devised to solve the tool selection problems and a number of tool replacement policies have been proposed in the past. These strategies have been solved in isolation, whereas, a comprehensive algorithm for proper selection of tools out of those available in the tool magazine for performing operation and for replacement of tools on failure/wear is necessary.

Tool management is a key issue in this type of manufacturing cells. In fact, a machine is in a waiting state, after the execution of the first operation of a part program, whenever the tool required in order to begin one of the following operations is engaged, because it is in use on the other machine or it is on the way in the tool handling system.

Some Research studies and industrial cases have demonstrated that using tool management concepts could maximize machine utilization, shorten make span, minimize tool inventory and save tooling cost; however, no simple tool management rules can be directly used in real-life cases of a FMS.

Research objectives:

·        The main objective is to provide basis for the development of general Tool Management System (TMS) for Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS).

·        To maximize the tool performance and utilization.

·        To reduce the tool change over time and tool cost.

·        To reduce tool inventory in FMS.
