Theory of Machine

Laboratory Incharge:
Prof. Snehal. S. Patel  

Major Equipment:

  • • Loaded Governor Model
  • • Portal Governor Model
  • • Hartnell Governor Model
  • • Watt Governor Model
  • • Motorized Gyroscope (Rotor dia. 300 mm) Without Tachometer
  • • Influence of Inertia upon Velocity & Acceleration

Experiments to be Performed:

Mechanical engineers design, analyze, and manufacture new products and technologies. Theory of machines is a design-oriented subject which addresses the kinematics and dynamics of mechanisms with applications to linkage systems, reciprocating engines, automobile parts and industrial machinery. This lab transforms their basic theory knowledge into the practical approach.

  • • Overviews of theory of machine
