Course programme

B.E. Aeronautical Engineering


THE DEPARTMENT OF AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING IS COMMITED TO

1. Establishes itself as an excellent academic center through expert pedagogical methods and modern laboratories to produce world class aeronautical engineers.

2. Disseminate knowledge through seminars, conferences and continuing education programs.

3. Make tie-ups with industries, research centers and renowned institutions to synergize the benefits.

PACE
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first flight by Wright brothers. Park college of Engineering and Technology organized a 3-day grand function- Park Aviation Centenary Exposition (PACE) from 3rd to 5th august 2002. Prof. S.Santha Kumar, Head, Department of Aerospace Engineering, IIT, Chennai, and Chairman, Aeronautical Society of India (Chennai Branch), inaugurated the function. Dr.P.V.Ravi, Chairman, Park Group of Institutions presided over the function. Dr.K.Ramachand, Adviser, Defence Research and Development Organization, Bangalore, gave the keynote address. Shri D.Narayana Moorthy, Director, LVPO, ISRO, Bangalore, gave a special lecture on the topic "Indian Space Program For National Development". Air Vice Marshal K.S. Chaturvedi, VSM, Senior Maintenance Staff Officer, H.Q. Training Command IAF, Bangalore, and many other dignitaries felicitated. A grand aero-exhibition was also organized in which many leading aeronautical organizations like HAL, ISRO, DRDO, ADA, ADE, GTRE, AESI, IAF, UMS Equipments participated. Eminent scientists from these organizations gave special lectures, in two sessions, in various fields of aerospace engineering. A national level paper presentation contest was also held on 4th august 2002 in which many enthusiastic students from all over the country participated.
Radio controlled aircraft models and control line aircraft models were also flown in the college grounds, which attracted the attention of all the visitors. An aircraft photo gallery, installed by the students of Park College of Engineering and Technology, displayed more than 300 photographs, and charts on the evolution of aviation in the country and around the world. Many scale models of important aircraft like Wright Flier I, European Fighter Aircraft, Space Shuttle, etc., fabricated by the Park students, were on display. Many organizations like Shanthi Gears, sponsored the program.

The objective of conducting the aircraft structures laboratory is to make the students understand and appreciate various principles and theorems involved in the theory of aircraft structures, vibrations and experimental analysis., by doing simple and advanced experiments and analyzing the results. This will immensely help the students to enrich their knowledge in the design of various aircraft structural components, namely, wing fuselage, landing gear, control surfaces etc. Special equipments like two-dimensional photo-elastic set-up, fatigue-testing machine, electronic stroboscopes, viscous damping set-up, forced vibration set-up are also to be installed in the nearest future. It is also proposed to set-up facilities for fabricating fiber composite laminates, since they find many applications in nearly all structural parts.

It is one of the visions of the department to make this laboratory, a very special one of its kind of aircraft structures in this part of the country.

AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS LABORATORY

The aeronautical department has been provided with a well-equipped laboratory for conducting experiments in study of various aircraft systems. The laboratory is equipped with a Beecheraft aircraft, "Duke 60", to impart practical knowledge and know-how of the principles and working of various systems like aircraft hydraulic system, de-icing and anti-icing system, landing gear system, oxygen system, pressurization system, aircraft electrical systems and their components in the aircraft systems laboratory.

AERO-ENGINE REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE PRACTICES LABORATORY

An engine is the heart of any aircraft. Knowing its various components, their working principles, repair and maintenance practices is of utmost importance to an aeronautical engineer. Throwing light into this fact, the aeronautical engineering department is equipped with an Aero-Engine Repair And Maintenance Practices Laboratory. This Engine Model C90 (Piston Engine). Practical knowledge of aero-engine repair and maintenance practices is gained by physically dismantling, inspecting and assembling of various components/units such as aero-engine piston, cylinder, carburetor, oil filter, exhaust unit and intake guide vanes.
