To learn how actual mechanical properties of different material with magnitude which are used in the engineering for different purpose.
To detect different types of flaw occurring during the manufacturing of product.
To learn use of different machines and equipment to improve the mechanical properties of different material and testing of the same for its correctness.
To build confidence through hands on experiment and analyzing the experimental data for selection of materials for the purpose of design.
LIST OF EXPERIMENTS
Impact tests: Charpy and Izod tests.
Test for drawability of sheet metals through cupping test.
Fatigue test of a typical sample.
Sample preparation and etching of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys for metallographic observation;
Experiments on heat treatment of carbon steels under different rates of cooling including quenching,and testing for the change in hardness and observing its microstructural changes through metallographic studies.
Observation of presence of surface/ sub-surface cracks using different non-destructive techniques, such as dye penetration (DP)test, magnaflux test, ultrasonic or eddy current test.
