Major Research Work

  • Lead Time Reduction in Cupellation Process in Fire Assay

    Improving work environment and reducing the total time of the cupellation process from 9* minutes to 2.5* minutes (approx values).

    The normal cupellation procedure requires loading and unloading the cupels in the muffle furnace one by one. It consumes a lot of time and also exposes the worker to the toxic gases. We designed a bullion block, a loading/unloading mechanical system and a loading fork considering the space constraint of the muffle furnace. The new design allowed loading/unloading of maximum 21 cupels at a time from a distance. Thus reducing the total time of the cupellation process from 9* minutes to 2.5* minutes (approx values).

    At Tanishq Laboratories (Tata group) in 2009.

    o Awarded Best Research Paper nationally in Metallurgy department out of 6000 registrations
    o Invited to present the research paper at International Conference & Exhibition on Total Engineering, Analysis and Manufacturing Technologies (2.5% applicants selected).

  • Impact of low calorific value gases and syngas on gas turbine performance

    Perofrmance Analysis and suggesting design changes for a gas turbine to run efficiently on Low Calorific Value fuels

    Analysis of gas turbine engine’s performance on cheaper and more abundant low calorific value fuels. Suggesting design changes and parameters for optimized output.

    Recommendations implemented by Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO) resulting in peak
    efficiency gains of 12.5%

    At Gas Turbine Research Establishment, Bangalore

  • Understanding Micro Emulsions: Experiments, Analysis and Simulation

    Understandiing the properties of emulsion on MATLAB simulaton model

    Formation of droplets in emulsion is due to difference in phases. The size and number of these droplets depends on various factors, like speed of mixing, concentrations, amount of emulsifier, etc. In our experiments we prepared emulsions by changing all possible major variables and tried to analyse their properties and their variations by plotting a frequency curve between the number of drops and radius using Image J. We aim at exploiting all these properties to understand emulsions better. A MATLAB simulation model was built which was successfully related with the experimental results.

    At Centre For Fire, Explosives and Environment Safety, New Delhi.

  • Designing and Packing of the Thermal Energy Storage System (TES)

    A real life problem where a Thermal Energy Storage System was to be designed and mounted on a truck simulated on 3D CAD design software, SolidWorks

    A design problem where parts the of Thermal Energy Storage System were designed and were mounted on the truck. Space and height constraint was the volume available at the back of the truck. 20% of the total volume was reserved for the piping.

    At Laser Science and Technology Centre, New Delhi in 2008.
