Effect of Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles on the Phase Diagrams and the thermophysical properties of Nitrate Molten salts. Aug’15 – May’17

The main objective is to improve the overall efficiency of the concentrated solar power plant and to obtain the phase diagram of NaNO3-KNO3 molten salt system when the titanium dioxide nanoparticles with varying concentrations are added to it. This work proved that:

• When 10% of nanoparticles are added 30-70,40-60 compositions of molten salts have much improvement in specific heat value

• When we look at the latent heat of fusion, 50-50, 60-40 and 70- 30 give us the better results when they are doped with 5% of nanoparticles

• when melting point is considered, 30-70 and 40-60 give us the better results when 1% of nanoparticles are added whereas 50-50,60-40,70-30 compositions of molten salts give us better melting point at when 5% of nanoparticles are added to it. UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH PROJECT

Processing and interlaminar shear strength of glass fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composite.

• In this research, Glass fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composite material properties are studied and compared with the properties of glass fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composite.

• Filament winding process is used to prepare the composite material.

• The interlaminar shear strength of three different materials namely glass-carbon fibers reinforced epoxy matrix hybrid composite, glass fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composite and carbon fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composite was evaluated.

• The flexural and shear strength of hybrid composite was found to be high as compared to other two materials. HONORS & AWARDS

• Funded for 4 Semesters during my Masters’ by NIU for achieving Academic Excellency

• Received a certificate of appreciation for teaching the students about the Hydraulics and Robotics in workshop conducted by ASME.

• Trained and Certified on Differential Scanning Calorimetry Theory and Applications with TA Instruments.
