The Department of Mechanical Engineering, Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) Surat is organizing an Online Faculty Development Program (FDP) on Reality based welding simulator: Significance, virtual training and industrial correlation from January 18 to 22, 2021.
Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) was established in 1961 as one of the Regional Engineering Colleges for imparting technical education. In exercise of the powers conferred by section 3 of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Act, 1956, the Central Government on the advice of the University Grants Commission, has declared the Sardar Vallabhbhai Regional College of Engineering & Technology (SVREC), Surat to Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT), Surat with the status of “Deemed University” with effect from 4th December 2002. The Institute has been granted the status of ‘Institute of National Importance’ w.e.f. 15th August 2007.
The aim of this program is to provide a fundamental understanding on reality based welding simulation, its correlation with actual welding as well as relevant testing for welded parts to a broad spectrum of researchers, teachers and students. Various industries are now making use of welding simulator not only to train their resources but also to enhance weld quality, minimizing defects, designing best WPS/ PQR, etc.
- Need and significance of weld simulator from industrial perspective.
- Virtual training to understand a reality based experience with the help of variable welding process parameters.
- Demonstrate the effectiveness in accordance with WPS setting/design and influence of process parameters.
- Demonstration of weld joint analysis through virtual and real time welding.
- Interpretation and understanding of testing associated with welded part.
- Introduction to advances in the welding and exposure to scope for research in the field of welding from industry perspective.
- Interactions with industry experts.
- Efforts will be made to invite reputed industries to demonstrate their latest products/ developments in welding field.
