Fluid Machines Lab

Fluid Mechanics lab is used to conduct experiments & research in Aerodynamics, Fluid Dynamics and Fluid Machinery. The lab consists of several experimental setups for verifying the basic laws of fluid mechanics and some flow measuring devices. It also has two wind tunnels. This tunnel together with its auxiliary equipment is ideal for studies of flow around objects, aerofoiles and model studies of wind turbines. It can also be used for fundamental studies into the structure of wake-flows and turbulent boundary layers.

This lab houses experimental setups of a  wheel and a turbine which facilitate the study and performance test of turbines. Experimental setups for several pumps also serve the same.

The lab also serves the needs of the industries through consultancy serviceslike performance testing of centrifugal pump, submersible pump, turbine pump, fan performance test etc.

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.
