Fluid Mechanics Laboratory

Purpose

The laboratory is set up under Civil engineering Department. It caters to the needs of the under graduate programmes offered by the departments of Civil Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. The laboratory facilitates essential equipment to understand working principles of the Hydraulic machines- different types of Turbines, Pumps, and other miscellaneous hydraulics machines. Experiments are conducted to measure the rate of flow using notches, weirs, venturi-meters, and orifice meters etc. and there by determining coefficient of discharge.

In 1947, WCE was founded in Sangli with just over 60 students. Today, it has more than 4,000 students taking various courses in Engineering and Technology. We create opportunities not just for young minds to learn, but also for them to experience the fulfillment that comes from sharing this learning with others. At WCE, we are always focused on delivering education that will help create the leaders of tomorrow’s world – our students will not just be successful in their individual capacities, but will in turn, contribute to and nurture the world they live in.
