Most important subjects for GATE Mechanical Engineering
Heat and Mass Transfer requires knowledge of fluid mechanics for convection mode of heat transfer between solid body and fluid which is in motion as well as for heat exchanger analysis. So, before you study Heat and Mass transfer, you need to first learn aboutFluid mechanics subject.
Refrigeration and Air conditioning requires use of thermodynamics cycles and heat and mass transfer knowledge for understanding the analysis of vapor compression and vapor absorption cycle which are base of any refrigeration and air conditioning. So, Refrigeration and Air conditioning subject is covered after Thermodynamics and Heat and mass transfer subjects.
Thus we can conclude that some of the subjects are unique that do not depend on other subject or its knowledge. These are
- Mechanics of Solids (Strength of Materials + Engineering Mechanics),
- Elements of Mechanical Engineering
- Engineering Graphics
- Engineering thermodynamics,
- Heat and Mass Transfer,
- Fluid Mechanics,
While below are the subjects which are totally dependent on above subjects. One need to have sufficient and enough knowledge to have study of
- Theory of Machines/Dynamics of Machines
- Machine Design
- Refrigeration and Air Conditioning
- Heat and Mass Transfer
- Manufacturing Engineering
- Power Plant Engineering
Introduction to Seals : Oil under pressure is moving in every hydraulic circuit. Since oil is a liquid it has the tendency to 'leak' through every gas/slot it finds during movement. This leakage of...
Introduction to Slotting Machine : The slotter or slotting machine is also a reciprocating type of machine tool similar to a shaper. It may be considered as a vertical shaper. The machine operates...
