GE8152                                           ENGINEERING GRAPHICS                       L  T   P C                                                                                                                         2   0  4  4


  • 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 FREEHAND SKETCHING                                                  7+12

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.

Visualization concepts and Free Hand sketching: Visualization principles –Representation of Three

Dimensional objects – Layout of views- Freehand  sketching of multiple views from pictorial views of objects


UNIT II            PROJECTION OF POINTS, LINES AND PLANE SURFACE                                 6+12

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 t r ue inclinations by rotating line method  and traces Projection of planes  (polygonal and circular surf aces ) inclined to both the principal planes by rotating object method.


UNIT III           PROJECTION OF SOLIDS                                                                                       5+12

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.



SURFACES                                                                                                               5+12

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.


UNIT V           ISOMETRIC AND PERSPECTIVE PROJECTIONS                                              6 +12

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 – Perspective projection of simple solids-Prisms, pyramids and   cylinders by visual ray method .




On successful completion of this course, the student will be able to :



  • Familiarize with the fundamentals and standards of Engineering graphics
  • Perform freehand sketching of basic geometrical constructions and multiple views of objects.
  • Project orthographic projections of lines and plane surfaces.
  • Draw projections and solids and development of surfaces.
  • Visualize and to project isometric and perspective sections of simple solids.
