Bachelors of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering,
F.K.Lu, N.K.M.Gupta, D.R.Wilson - "Point Measurement of Detonation Wave Speed" - The 29th
INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON SHOCK WAVES, Madison WI, July 2013.
Design and Development of Ion Gauge:
Designed an ion gauge in order to estimate the velocity of detonation wave.
A pair of ion gauges was built into a four -hole ceramic tube potted with epoxy into a steel plug. Solid
copper wires were used as electrode pairs.
The distance between the two gauges was very less thereby giving a point measurement.
Measurement of Detonation Wave Propagation using Ion Gauges:
Converted shock tunnel into a shock-induced detonation tube.
A 30ft long stainless steel tube was used with 2in internal diameter. This tube was entirely filled with
stoichiometric oxy-hydrogen mixture.
Ion gauges and pressure transducers were placed along the tube to study the propagation of the detonation
Design a gas turbine engine for a supersonic transport aircraft:
Designed and compared three gas turbine engines for a mission of range 11000km using NPSS.
Final engine cycle parameters and performance were calculated for transonic and supersonic cruise
segments of the mission.
The goal of the project was to minimize fuel consumption, maximize thrust and minimize engine diameter.
Fabricated and experimentally analyzed a simplified version of combu stion chamber which can be used as
LPG is being used as fuel and compressed air is fed tangentially to the chamber.
Flame behavior has being qualitatively analyzed for different air-fuel mixtures and temperatures had been
recorded axially as well as radially.
Designed and Fabricated Radio Controlled IC-Engine Car:
Lead a team of five for this project.
Fabricated the structural parts of the car like chassis, arms, suspension stays, disc brake and mountings.
Designed a fully adjustable suspension system.
Tuned the engine for fast response and to maintain ideal temperature.
