Measurement and Metrology Lab

The process of getting one or more numerical values that can be fairly assigned to a quantity or property is known as measurement. A measurement’s correctness, specificity, and consistency are all covered by metrology. Traceability or comparison to a “standard” or between different measuring systems is involved.

The student will be able to understand pressure gauge, thermocouple, LVDT, load cell, and micrometer calibration by studying the lab. Use the ideas of angle measurement with a Sine Centre, Sine Bar, or Bevel Protractor, and alignment with an Autocollimator/Roller Set. Conduct measurements with an optical projector/toolmaker microscope and optical flats. Use an Optical Projector/Tool Maker microscope and optical flats to illustrate measurements. Using a lathe/drill tool dynamometer, analyse tool forces. Examine Screw thread dimensions are measured with a 2-wire or 3-wire method, and gear tooth profiles are measured with a gear tooth Vernier/micrometer. Understand the basic principles of surface roughness measuring.

Machine Shop Lab

A machine shop is a room, building, or company where machining, a form of subtractive manufacturing, is done. In a machine shop, machinists use machine tools and cutting tools to make parts, usually of metal or plastic (but sometimes of other materials such as glass or wood)

Machine shops often also contain the raw materials required for manufacturing the specific part, such as bar stocks. It also stores an inventory of the parts that have been finished.

The student will be able to hands on experience on machines like Lathe Machine, Milling Machine, Shaping Machine, Planner Machine, Drilling Machine, Slotting Machine, Grinding Machine. Students will understand the different operations that can be performed by using Lathe machine like turning, facing, drilling, chamfering, knurling, step turning, taper turning.

Material Testing Lab

The process of testing of materials to find out its Mechanical properties like elasticity, plasticity, ductility, brittleness, yield strength and hardness etc.. And used to ensure that supplied material will perform as expected and covers a wide variety of experimental approaches ranging from simple tensile test to more complex test for finding flaws and cracks inside the material is known as Material testing Lab.

The student able to understand Universal Testing Machine working principle for finding tensile, compression, bending and shear strength of the materials. To conduct the experiment to find hardness of the material by different experiments like Brinell Hardness test, Rock well and vicker’s hardness test. Use an impact testing machine for conduct Izod and Charpy impact test. Examine the cracks inside the material by magnetic crack detector and understand the basic principle of Theory of failures of materials.

Fluid Mechanics Lab

In this lab, tests on the properties of fluids, flow measuring devices, are performed.

Performance study on various hydraulic machines like Turbines, Pumps, Compressors and blowers are conducted. This laboratory caters to the academic requirement of various disciplines of Engineering like Civil Engineering, Aeronautical engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering.

Apart from academic requirements the laboratory provides research facilities in the field of fluid Engineering.

Computer Aided Aircraft Drawing Lab

Computer Aided Aircraft Drawing Lab makes use of computers (or workstations) to aid in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design of different aircraft and its parts.

Aerospace Propulsion lab.

The Propulsion Laboratory houses experimental facilities for the under graduate and post graduate programs. It also has equipment for research activities. Lab has a R-25 jet engine and a piston engine. Students can study the fuel and lubrication related systems. Thermal related experiments include forced convective heat transfer over a flat plate, determination of heat of combustion of aviation fuel, measurement of burning velocity of a premixed flame and study of the flame lift up and fall back phenomenon for varied Air/Fuel ratio. Lab is equipped with a Cascade testing tunnel for testing of axial compressor or turbine blade rows, and there is an axial flow fan unit for testing axial compression.  The propulsion lab is well equipped with all the facilities suitable for undergraduate studies and research. Students will learn the basic working principles of jet engines, reciprocating engines, flame properties, flame stabilization etc. The impact of different fuel properties like HCV and LCV can be done and it is open to external members. Preparation solid propellant, burning rate of the propellant, specific impulse of a solid motor and hybrid motor using a thrust stand are various experimental facilities  related to rocket propulsion available in the lab.

Aerospace Structures lab.

The Structural Engineering Laboratory at MVJ college of engineering serves a wide spectrum of activities covering those related to teaching, research, development, and consultancy. The primary activities include experimental studies on model/prototype of structural elements and assemblies under various static and dynamic loading conditions. In addition to the regular academic and research the structure lab is open to the public for testing of their module, they can have both static and dynamic tests in our laboratory.

Flight simulation lab

The Flight Simulation Laboratory has MATLAB software for stability and control analysis of aircraft, missiles, satellites, and spacecraft. Mathematical modelling and simulation of aircraft and spacecraft can be carried out. Performance work can also be carried out like estimation of runway roll during take-off and landing with modelling of hazardous conditions. In addition to the modelling software, the lab is equipped with flight simulator where students have real time experience of piloting, students can be able to change the environment’s condition and study the conditions of the flight. The simulator will be open to the public for practice, the external member will be allowed with batches having capacity of minimum 10 people.

Design, Modelling and Analysis lab

Specifically designated for project activities, is available for these students, equipped with cutting-edge PC configurations and software such as ANSYS. Students are motivated to extend their working hours beyond regular college time in the lab. Having experienced faculties and researcher in modelling and analysis and it is open for consultancy projects.

Aerodynamics lab

The objective of Aerodynamic Laboratory is to make students understand the nature of flow past various models at different attitudes, and thereby providing a source for engineering testing and flow analysis. The nature of pressure distribution over various aerofoil and body shapes is explained. Experiment related to wake and boundary layer survey provide information on the momentum thickness and displacement thickness.


The Aerodynamics Laboratory houses a subsonic wind tunnel that is used to perform curriculum-based experiments and research activities. The wind tunnel test section has cross section of 600x600mm and length of test section is 2000mm. It has several related accessories like wake rake, pressure transducers, boundary layer rake and model support system etc. The lab has advanced equipment for R&D related activity; namely- three-component internal strain gage balance, six components external stain gauge balance, and hot wire constant temperature anemometer (HWCTA). Several advanced experiments related to estimation of stability derivatives of various configurations can be done using external strain gauge balance. Through HWCTA, the turbulence related experiments can be performed.

Aerodynamics is the subject which deals with objects move through air. Objects that moves through air is affected by aerodynamic forces. To make students aware of the concepts of lift and drag, this laboratory is equipped subsonic wind tunnel facilities with smoke flow testing. Students can do the experiments as wells the projects. In addition to the academic, consultancy work also will be carried out for external members with nominal cost.
