New EG Syllabus for GTU Updated 2013




Type of course: Engineering Science

Prerequisite: Zeal to learn the subject

Rationale: Engineering Drawing is an effective language of engineers. It is the foundation block which strengthens the engineering & technological structure. Moreover, it is the transmitting link between ideas and realization.

Chapter 1: Introduction to Engineering Graphics: Drawing instruments and accessories, BIS – SP 46. Use of plane scales, Diagonal Scales and Representative Fraction.

Chapter 2: Engineering Curves: Classification and application of Engineering Curves, Construction of Conics, Cycloidal Curves, Involutes and Spirals along with normal and tangent to each curve.

Chapter 3: Projections of Points and Lines: Introduction to principal planes of projections, Projections of the points located in same quadrant and different quadrants, Projections of line with its inclination to one reference plane and with two reference planes. True length and inclination with the reference planes.

Chapter 4: Projections of Planes: Projections of planes (polygons, circle and ellipse) with its inclination to one reference plane and with two reference planes, Concept of auxiliary plane method for projections of the plane.

Chapter 5: Projections of Solids and Section of Solids: Classification of solids. Projections of solids (Cylinder, Cone, Pyramid and Prism) along with frustum with its inclination to one reference plane and with two reference planes. Section of such solids and the true shape of the section.

Chapter 6: Orthographic Projections: Fundamental of projection along with classification, Projections from the pictorial view of the object on the principal planes for view from front, top and sides using first angle projection method and third angle projection method, full sectional view.

Chapter 7: Isometric Projections and Isometric View or Drawing: Isometric Scale, Conversion of orthographic views into isometric projection, isometric view or drawing.
