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 Pressure Vessels Vessels, tanks, and pipelines that carry, store, or receive fluids are called pressure vessels. A pressure vessel is defined as a container with a pressure...
Knuckle Joint A knuckle joint is used to connect two rods which are under the action of tensile loads. However, if the joint is guided, the rods may support a compressive load. A knuckle joint...
