Mechanical Engineering Research Groups

1.   The Real Casters (The RC)

Group Members (SMME):

  1. Dr. Khalid Akhtar
  2. Naweed Hassan
  3. M. Husnain (Student, ME Dept.)

Group Members (outside SMME):

  1. Dr. Mirza Jehanzaib (Chairman, Industrial Engineering Dept., UET Taxila)
  2. Dr WasimAhmad, (faculty member, UET Taxila)
  3. Ghulam Asghar (Student, UET Taxila)

Objective:     

To improve the quality of the casting process using experimental & analytical means.

Scope of Work:

The work aims at identifying quality defects in castings like blow holes, imperfections and micro-cracks. The purpose is to see the effect of changing operating conditions like pouring temperature, material of mould, type of sand etc. Process optimization is the ultimate objective in order to obtain high quality castings at affordable costs.

Group Members (outside SMME):

  1. Dr. Mirza Jehanzaib (Chairman, Industrial Engineering Dept., UET Taxila)
  2. Dr Wasim Ahmad, (faculty member, UET Taxila)
  3. Ghulam Asghar (Student, UET Taxila)

Objective:      

 To improve the quality of the Electro-galvanizing process using experimental & analytical means.

Scope of Work:

This work aims at identifying the optimal process conditions like current, pre-conditioning of the components to be electroplated, right concentration levels and quality of chemicals used, appropriate rate of stirring, impurities / slag control.
