In heat engine and heat transfer lab students conduct experiments and research in internal combustion engines and power plant engineering. It lab provides several cutaway setups of different types of engines which facilitate the study of engine basics. Students can dismantle the engines as well as the components to get a comprehensive knowledge about different systems and subsystems of the engine.
Vairous experiments for determination of thermal conductivity by Steady-State method, Radiation heat transfer, Thermal contact-conductance, Heat transfer from extended surface, Boiling heat transfer, Heat transfer by Forced convection etc. are some major fields where students perform their experiments & research.
The lab also houses experimental setups of a fully functional gas turbine and a cut-section model of a real Jet engine and a vapor compression refrigeration unit which help students to study the basics of power plant engineering. It also serves the needs of the industries through consultancy services.
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.
