Computational Fluid Dynamics R&D Projects:
“CFD analysis of merged airfoil for incompressible and compressible flows”, “Comparison of heat transfer between a helical and straight tube heat exchanger”, “CFD analysis of fluid flow and heat transfer in a conical spiral tube heat exchanger” was undertaken in the department and was guided by Prof. Bibin Prasad. All these works has been published in the International Journal of Applied Engineering Research(IJAER)
CFD analysis work guided by Prof.Shan M Assis on “Numerical simulation and Performance investigation of an enhanced Carbondioxide refrigeration system” is the ongoing work in this area. Analysis based on triple tube helical heat exchanger, finned spiral Gas cooler, trapezoidal tube-in-tube heat exchanger will be evaluated.
Composite Material Development:
Research work on “Mechanical property evaluation of Coir reinforced Aluminium laminate epoxy” done by final year B.Tech Mechanical engineering students M Harishankar Nair, Anoop Khan P, Deepak S and Joji Oommen George was partially supported by Central Coir Research Institute of India and the ‘Composite Characterization and Testing division’ of Indian Space Research Organisation. The paper has been published in the International Journal of Applied Engineering Research(IJAER). Students got permission from Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), for further testing of the newly developed composite material. The project was guided by Prof. Shan M Assis
Based on the results of “Projectile Impact Testing” from DRDO, a new work has been initiated in 2014 by Prof Shameer V Hameed by trying a new composition of materials.
