Applied Mechanics Laboratory focuses on developing techniques for the design, analysis, modeling and simulation of machines, structures and pressure vessels. There is a state-of-the-art facility for measuring strength of materials, hardness test, buckling test, compression test, fatigue test, extensive lab, simulations, testing and (non-destructive inspection) are used to study failure analysis and design improvements.
Three of our faculty members: Prof. Dr. Md. Emdadul Hoque, Prof. Dr. Md. Rokunuzzaman, Dr. Mhia Md. Zaglul Shahadat, Dr. Md. Riaz Parvez are technically sound and active in the field of Applied Mechanics and Machine Design research spans a wide range of exciting engineering areas, such as:
- Magnetic levitation micro-electro-mechanical system
- Vibration analysis and control
- Noise and vibration isolation
- Moving mass, mechanism and mechanics, dynamics machinery etc.
This lab is also involved in automation and control research, such as mechatronic vehicle system, hybrid power vehicle, robotics, precision motion control, machine vision etc.
Extensive experimental facilities have been developed for all of these research areas. Currently, Prof. Dr. Md. Emdadul Hoque handling a research project of Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project (HEQEP) funded by jointly World Bank and Government of Bangladesh for the period of 2014 – 2017. The main objective of this project is the improvement of postgraduate research facilities in Applied Mechanics and Machine Design laboratory.
