Brief Description

MANNIRA is a multipurpose agricultural machine, which performs various agricultural practices such as ploughing, transplanting, irrigation, harvesting, grain separation, winnowing and milling. The project aims to fabricate such a multipurpose machine. A second hand stone cutting machine is modified to the final product after installing different components. MANNIRA is a solution for many drawbacks of using single task purpose machines like time required, capital investment for each machine, maintenance cost, lack of labour etc. Productivity can be increased at a lower capital cost.

                Quite often engineers are called upon to be part of design and fabrication of various items of day-to-day use. Familiarity with the common fabrication methods, use of hand tools and measuring equipments will be an advantage in this regard. Basic Engineering workshops provide hands on experience to the students in using hand tools and measuring instruments in trades like Fitting, Carpentry, Sheet metal, Foundry and Plumbing.

                     In these days much of the Design and Drafting activities are taken over by computers. Any Engineer working in the field of Research and Development, Design and Production must be familiar with the immense potential in the field of Computer Aided Design and Drafting. In the CADD lab, students are given training to design and draw using the various softwares available in this field like, Auto CAD. Solidworks etc.

                 Fluid Mechanics is the science that deals with the behavior of fluids at rest or in motion. Both gases and liquids are classified as fluids and the number of fluid engineering applications are enormous: blood flow, pumps, fans, turbines, airplanes, ships, rivers, wind mills, pipes, jets and many more. Almost everything on this planet either is a fluid or moves within or near a fluid. The essence of the subject of fluid flow is a compromise between theory and experiment. Flow characteristics of fluid, transportation of fluids from place to place, power generation from fluids are some of the topics in which an engineering student needs to have thorough knowledge. With this objective Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines Lab provides opportunity to study and conduct experiments on flow measuring devices, different types of pumps like Reciprocating and Centrifugal pumps and power generat
