ENGINEERING GRAPHICS

LPTC

2 0 3 4

OBJECTIVES:
• To develop in students, graphic skills for communication of concepts, ideas and design of Engineering products
• To expose them to existing national standards related to technical drawings.

CONCEPTS AND CONVENTIONS (Not for Examination)

1

Importance of graphics in engineering applications – Use of drafting instruments – BIS conventions and specifications – Size, layout and folding of drawing sheets – Lettering and dimensioning.

UNIT I

PLANE CURVES AND FREE HAND SKETCHING

5+9

Basic Geometrical constructions, Curves used in engineering practices: Conics – Construction of ellipse, parabola and hyperbola by eccentricity method – Construction of cycloid – construction of involutes of square and circle – Drawing of tangents and normal to the above curves, Scales: Construction of Diagonal and Vernier scales. Visualization concepts and Free Hand sketching: Visualization principles –Representation of Three Dimensional objects – Layout of views- Free hand sketching of multiple views from pictorial views of objects

UNIT II

PROJECTION OF POINTS, LINES AND PLANE SURFACES

5+9

Orthographic projection- principles-Principal planes-First angle projection-projection of points. Projection of straight lines (only First angle projections) inclined to both the principal planes - Determination of true lengths and true inclinations by rotating line method and traces Projection of planes (polygonal and circular surfaces) inclined to both the principal planes by rotating object method.

UNIT III

PROJECTION OF SOLIDS

5+9

Projection of simple solids like prisms, pyramids, cylinder, cone and truncated solids when the axis is inclined to one of the principal planes by rotating object method and auxiliary plane method.

UNIT IV

PROJECTION OF SECTIONED SOLIDS AND DEVELOPMENT OF SURFACES

5+9

Sectioning of above solids in simple vertical position when the cutting plane is inclined to the one of the principal planes and perpendicular to the other – obtaining true shape of section. Development of lateral surfaces of simple and sectioned solids – Prisms, pyramids cylinders and cones. Development of lateral surfaces of solids with cut-outs and holes

UNIT V

ISOMETRIC AND PERSPECTIVE PROJECTIONS

6+9

Principles of isometric projection – isometric scale –Isometric projections of simple solids and truncated solids - Prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones- combination of two solid objects in simple vertical positions and miscellaneous problems. Perspective projection of simple solids-Prisms, pyramids and cylinders by visual ray method.

COMPUTER AIDED DRAFTING (Demonstration Only)

3

Introduction to drafting packages and demonstration of their use.

TOTAL : 75 PERIODS

OUTCOMES: On Completion of the course the student will be able to:
• Perform free hand sketching of basic geometrical constructions and multiple views of objects.
• Do orthographic projection of lines and plane surfaces.
• Draw projections and solids and development of surfaces.
• Prepare isometric and perspective sections of simple solids.
• Demonstrate computer aided drafting.
