Fabrication of BAJA SAE ATV

A group of Mechanical Engineering students has fabricated ATV for SAE-BAJA2014 for the second time after the SAE-BAJA2013 competition. The complete fabrication activities including welding, assembly, machining takes place inside by active participation of students & staff. In 2013 the IIT-Indore team was placed 35th position for innovative concepts and design among 260 participant institutes. The concept vehicle was then analyzed using various analysis software and specially developed program to optimize the vehicle design. The final vehicle was manufactured and assembled in the IIT-Indore workshop. The vehicle was 5th cheapest vehicle in the BAJA-2013 competition and was appreciated by the jury for safety and the ergonomics. The vehicle competed till the last lap in the final endurance race through rough terrain. Our team of 25 students, ‘Engines and Demons’, was placed 8th in the Computer Aided Engineering (Design & Analysis) round. Team stood 32nd in the acceleration test among 260 institutes all over the country. Participation in the BAJA competition had given invaluable experience to the student to handle the projects on their own right from concept, analysis, development and budget management.

Fabrication of Radio-telescope Antenna

The Astrophysics project started at the Central Workshop in last week Jul-2013 under guidance of Dr. Somaditya Sen & Dr. Siddharth Malu. Initially the job was to understand the construction of a purchased 4.5m antenna and to assemble it for data collection. Subsequently, drawings were made with AutoCAD and all fabrication work of base mount completed in first week of Aug-2013. The assembly work was started and completed by the end of Sep-2013. Parallel to this the plan of fabrication of an in-house construction of a similar antenna started late August 2013. Currently Design and fabrication of 4.5 m Radio Telescope Dish antenna is in process. This antenna will be having facilities to move 360º azimuth movement as well as 90º elevation movement. During inauguration of the 4.5m Radio-telescope antenna, Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Government of India visited the fabrication unit of the Central Workshop, IIT Indore. Dr Tharoor praised the workshop’s stand on manufacturing the first India 4.5m radio-telescope antenna.
