PROJECTS

Design and Analysis of a highly repeatable Centrifugal Governor (Team of 4)

• Selected the best possible method to run the analysis by creating a 3D model in Solidworks.

• Generated a set of suitable dimensions using MATLAB.

• Ran linear static and frequency analysis for all suitable values.

• Achieved optimum dimensions to satisfy all the design intents required. Design and Configuration of a turbo-pump in a Fuel turbine (Team of 2)

• Aimed to generate suitable airfoil geometries for stator and rotor.

• Airfoil tool designed through MATLAB was used to generate stator and rotor airfoils.

• Performed CFD analysis and compared to theoretically calculated results

• Achieved an efficiency of 82.5%.

Thermal project on Dropwise Condensation

• A single droplet modeled as an overall hemisphere.

• Heat is transported only through drops while the dry regions are adiabatic.

• Used Legendre Polynomial Recurrence Relationships and MATLAB to calculate temperatures and overall heat flow. Performance improvement in a Latent Heat Thermal Energy Storage System (Team of 3)

• This system utilizes a material’s phase change to store or release energy.

• Performance improvement is achieved by reducing the freezing time of the phase change material.

• The reduction in freezing time was achieved by changing the geometry of storage medium through experimental results.

Spring back estimation in ‘U’ bending of tubes (Team of 3) -Nuclear Fuel Complex, Government of India

• Spring back is change in bending angle resulting from elastic strain recovery during unloading of the tube.

• Analytic model was used for estimation considering characteristics of material and bending moment.

• Results obtained were at 97% match to standard values. INTERNSHIPS
