Heat and Mass Transfer laboratory provides fundamental and industrial knowledge about modes of heat and mass transfer, like conduction, convection, radiation, mass transfer and their application. Heat and Mass Transfer Lab consists of the following equipment.
Laboratory Incharge - Dr. Amit Kumar Singh
Thermal Conductivity of Building Materials Apparatus
This apparatus has been designed for students to experimentally determine the thermal conductivity of various building materials. The test material such as POM, Polystyrene, Acrylics, Armaflex, Chipboards and plasterboards in the form of square plate are placed in between electrically heated heating plate and the water cooling plate.
Heat Conduction Study in Linear and Radial Modules
This apparatus is used to find the thermal conductivity of linear and radial test piece of various materials such as copper, brass and steel.
Unsteady State Heat Transfer Equipment
It allows to conduct experiments on unsteady state heat transfer, to monitor temperature at the center of the rectangular and spherical shapes. Monitoring the temperature at the center of the shapes allows analysis of heat flow using appropriate transient temperature/heat flow charts.
Radiation Heat Transfer Test Rig
This unit has been designed to demonstrate the fundamental laws relating to radiation. It consist of a pair of electrically heated radiant heat and light sources together with a comprehensive range of target and measuring instrumentation.
Natural Convection and Radiation Unit
This unit’s experimental capabilities include the study of phenomena of heat transfer over a range of pressure and vacuum, determining the emissivity value of heater element and verifying Stefan Boltzmann equation.
