    PhD Title : ANALYTICAL ASPECT OF ARTIFICIAL GROUND WATER RECHARGING INTO AQUIFER.

    Supervisors: Dr J.A.Desai and Dr M.D.Desai

    Qualification: B.E. (Civil), M .E (Soil Mechanics & Foundation Engg.)

    Area of Interest: Field specialization in ground improvement techniques.

    Aim of research work:
    1. The demand of water is increasing day-by-day resulting in extraction of more and more groundwater and such extraction is in far excess of net average recharge from natural sources and hence it necessitates artificially recharging the aquifers to balance the output.
    2. Artificial recharge using source waters of impaired quality is a sound option where recharge is intended to control saltwater intrusion, reduce land option where recharge is intended to control subsidence, maintain stream base flows or similar in-ground functions

    3. Recharge of groundwater through storm run off and roof top water collection, diversion and collection of run off into dry tanks, play grounds, parks and other vacant places are to be implementing.

    4. To design an artificial recharge system, the preferred approach is to start small and simple learn as you go and expand as needed.

    5. Increase in the level of groundwater and decrease in Salinity, Fluoride concentration, Nitrate concentration, Bacteriological and heavy metal concentration before and after recharging.

    6. The above research will then facilitate to identify suitable areas, ground permeability, depth of aquifer, recharge & pumping rate and suitability of methods of artificial recharging of aquifers. No large storage structures needed to store water. Structures required are small and cost-effective the rooftop rainwater harvesting is less expensive, easy to construct, operate and maintain.

    Experience: 2 year (Academic)
    Area of interest: Smart composite materials
    Research Planning:
    Ferrites are ceramic materials containing compounds of iron and other metals. These are non-conducting magnetic media therefore eddy current and ohmic losses are less than that for ferromagnetic materials. The properties of ferrites may be enhanced by synthesizing it in nano size. Ferrites are most useful ferrimagnetic materials and find applications in the sensors like in the AFM tip etc. Despite having suitable magnetic and electrical characteristics, this finds limited applications because of poor mechanical characteristics and brittleness, being a ceramic. Ferrite Polymer Composites (FPC) opens up new horizons in magnetic applications, especially where ceramic ferrite cores are not suitable. Because of the distribution of ferrite particles in a polymer matrix, mechanical behavior is largely determined by the polymer and magnetic quality by the ferrite grains. The result is a rugged material with stable mechanical and electromagnetic properties. The ferrite-natural rubber composites have desirable properties for mechanical applications. Present research is aimed to fabricate a natural rubber polymer (NRZ) composite of mixed metal nano ferrite (like Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4) synthesized from chemical and mechanical routes. The resulting material will be characterized for its electromagnetic and mechanical properties so that it may find application in peizo-magnetic smart devices. It is envisaged that fabrication of the device may be difficult with the limited resources available.

    Experience: 1 year (industry)
    Area of interest: Computational Fluid Dynamics.
    Research Plan:
    I am working on simulation and design of Cyclone separator used in industries to separate dust from gas. This finds application in pollution control and for product recovery in process industries. Because of its simplicity, relative economy in operating cost and flexibility, it is widely used for more than a century. However, its design is still based on thumb rules and semi-empirical models as the flow inside cyclone is three dimensional vortex. With the rapid development of the computer capacities and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques, the use of numerical simulations to predict the performance of the cyclone has received much attention and it is at present under intensive development. Intense swirl, shear and unstable flow structures makes the simulation difficult. Eventually turbulence becomes highly anisotropic, which means that most models on first order turbulence closure are very weak at capturing the real flow. Hence at least second-order closure, i.e., a Reynolds Stress Transport Model (RSTM) is needed to capture anisotropy and achieve a realistic simulation of cyclone flow. Moreover the discretisation of advection terms can not be the usual first-order scheme since this brings excessive numerical diffusion and prevents an adequate simulation of flow. Cyclone flow turns asymmetric mostly because it runs unsteady. A realistic flow field can only be duplicated by solving a time-dependent, transient problem. Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS), which is the numerical solution of all the spatial and temporal scales of the time dependent Navier-Stokes equations attempting to duplicate all the detail of the turbulent flow, is feasible only at limited sizes or for model problems and low Reynolds numbers. Keeping in mind the above stated problems, my objective is to determine the cyclone performance parameters i.e. pressure drop and separation efficiency as well as the effect of performance parameters on inlet velocity and solid particle concentration with a realist model. We will determine the parameters by solving Navier-Stokes equations for the unsteady turbulent 3D flow, numerically by using CFD package like Fluent. Experiments will also be performed to validate the model.

    Research Interest :- I am going to register for PhD from session 2009-10 at my Institute. The topic is not finalized yet. But the probable area will be dynamic analysis of Post Tensioned Flat slab. Generally shear walls and peripheral beams are provided to building but still builders and architects do not prefer it much. The reason is commercial as well as utility of space. The area of research interest is to develop inbuilt system in post tensioned flat slab to resist lateral movement. The research will be analytical as well as experimental. Please consider my candidature for Co-Guide from USA.

    Educational Qualifications: B. E. (Civil Engineering), from (SVNIT),

    Research Interest: Environmental engineering, water and waste water related issues.
    PhD. topic: MODELING MUNICIPAL TREATMENT PLANT
    EFFICIENCY:AN INTEGRATED APPROACH AND PREDICTING BOD/COD FOR MUNICIPAL WASTE WATER

    Supervisor’s Name: Dr.R.A.Christian, Assistant Professor, CED, SVNIT, Surat
    Research Background: Evaluating the efficiency of waste water treatment system often requires decision makers to consider conflicting, vague, and uncertain information. Vagueness in the perception of environmental experts for different techno-scientific parameters in linguistic terms for the specific usage coupled with imprecision in parametric data calls for the application of fuzzy modeling in this study. Fuzzy set theory offers a possible means of managing these kinds of data or information. This study, proposes a systematic approach to evaluating efficiency of waste water treatment system in a fuzzy environment. The approach employs three main concepts: linguistic variables, fuzzy numbers, and an analytic hierarchy process. The linguistic variables are used to represent the degree of appropriateness of decision criteria, which are vague or uncertain. These linguistic variables are then translated into fuzzy numbers to reflect their uncertainties and aggregated into the final fuzzy decision value using a hierarchical structure. Through a case study, the approach is applied to the evaluation of the efficiency of waste water treatment system consisting of three types of treatment processes, physical, chemical and biological. The results demonstrate that the developed approach can be a useful tool for evaluating the efficiency of waste water treatment system, where criteria are vague or imprecise. The approach detailed in this sequel might be considered as a small step in the formulation of appropriate environmental pollution control strategies

    Ph. D. Topic: Towards Development of Upward Swirl Can type Gas Turbine
    Combustor

    Ph.D. Supervisor : Dr. J. Banerjee (Assistant Professor, Mech.Engg.Dept.,SVNIT)
    SUMMARY OF CURRENT RESEARCH WORK:

    Gas turbine produces great amount of energy for its size and weight. In a gas turbine combustor mixingof fuel and oxidizer takes place in primary egion. Turbulent mixing of fuel with oxidizer affectsefficiency and ollutant levels emitted from the combustor. In all practical gas turbine combustor, thedegree of mixing is controlled by swirling air flow and primary jet air flow. Primary jets creates strongre-circulating region in primary zone. This recirculation controls shape, size and stability of flame.

    Strategy of controlling the flame by re-circulation has the disadvantage hat it hampers the flame and there exist large number of scattered pockets of high temperature gradient. Scattered pockets of large temperature result in higher level of NOX emission from combustor. This re-circulation region also forces hot product of combustion to flow through annulus region near combustor wall. This puts stringent requirement on combustor wall cooling.

    The present research is aimed towards development of an upward swirl combustor. In this arrangement, primary air will be introduced parallel to combustor axis. Re-circulating region will be formed due to change in flow direction of primary air in the primary region. During alteration ofdirection, air will mix with fuel and the combustion will take place. This annular entry will confine flame to the region near the axis and reduce number of scattered pockets with steep temperature gradient. Thus upward swirl will also help in decreasing emission level of NOX from gas turbine combustor.

    SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE OF THE PRESENT WORK
    (1) Numerical analysis of existing backward swirl can type combustion chamber
    (2) To propose a design for upward swirl arrangement in the combustion chamber to reduce the wall cooling requirement.
    (3) To carry out numerical simulations by parametric variation of geometry and Air-fuel ratio.
    (4) Develop an experimental setup to validate the numerical calculations and finalize the design.

    My proposed research work intends to study the sedimentation parameters and mobility Index to predict the rate of sediment transport. Because river scientists and engineers do not have full- confidence in making reliable and accurate simulations of sediment transport. Identifying and delimiting the critical issues will lead in time to the development of improved models for alluvial river processes. Better assessment of project risk. The detailed study of characteristics of sediment transportation is very essential because sediment load of alluvial river creates many problems of river maintenance estuaries, and harbour siltation choking of hydro power plant outlets, coastal protection land erosion etc. The deviation in the estimation of sediment load also affects the prediction of aggregation, degradation and prediction of bedforms. Hence it is necessary to develop mathematical model for prediction of correct bedload aggregation, degradation and prediction of bed forms based on field data. This is devoted to the study of dimensionless flow parameters which are important in determining rate of sediment transportation. The mobility index prediction may also help in assessing river morphological behavior at its lower reaches. Based on various prediction methods, equations can be developed for Transport Parameter and Flow Parameter.
    I am interested to do my research (doctoral) under any foreign co-guide. Please consider my application for doctoral position

    Total years of experience is 4yrs at undergraduate level and my areas of interests includes VLSI,Communications. Under the guidance of Dr. Vasantha of Vasavi Engineering College,Hyderabad, I wish to carry out my PhD work in the area of VLSI. I got my PhD registered in JNTU,Hyderabad in 2009.The brief theme of the proposed work is cited below

    TITLE: LEAKAGE CURRENT REDUCTION IN CMOS VLSI CIRCUIT BY VECTOR CONTROL
    SYNOPSIS:
    Leakage describes an unwanted loss, or leak, of something which escapes from its proper location. In everyday usage, leakage is the gradual escape of matter through a leak-hole. Leakage current is also any current that flows when the ideal current is zero. Such is the case in electronic assemblies when they are in standby, disabled, or “sleep” mode. These devices can draw one or two microamperes while in their quiescent state compared to hundreds or thousands of milliamperes while in full operation. These leakage currents are becoming a significant factor to portable device manufacturers because of their undesirable effect on battery run time for the consumer. Referred from Microelectronic circuits by
    Sedra Smith, IV Edition.

    For reducing the leakage current of a CMOS circuit it is assumed that the system or environment produces a “Sleep” signal that can be used to indicate that the circuit is in a standby mode. There are three main sources for leakage current:-
    (a) Source/drain junction leakage current. (b) Gate direct tunneling leakage
    (c) Sub-threshold leakage through the channel of an OFF transistor

    The junction leakage occurs from the source or drain to the substrate through the reverse-biased diodes when a transistor is OFF. The magnitude of the diode’s leakage current depends on the area of the drain diffusion and the leakage current density, which is in turn determined by the process technology.
    The Gate direct tunneling leakage flows from the gate through the “leaky” oxide insulation to the substrate. Its magnitude increases exponentially with the gate oxide thickness T ox and supply voltage VDD. According to the 2001 International technology Roadmap for Semiconductors, high-K gate dielectric reduced direct tunneling current is required to control this component of the leakage current for low standby power devices.
    And last is the Sub-threshold current, it is the drain current of an OFF transistor. This is due to the diffusion current of the minority carriers in the channel for a MOS device operating in the weak inversion mode (i.e., the sub-threshold region). For instance, in the case of an inverter with a low input voltage, the NMOS is turned OFF and the output voltage is high.Even when VGS is 0V, there is still a current flowing in the OFF NMOS transistor due to the VDD potential of the VDS. The magnitude of the sub-threshold current is a function of the temperature, supply voltage, device size, and the process parameters out of which the threshold voltage (Vth) plays a dominant role. Referred from AfshinAbdollahi, Farzan Fallah, and Massoud Pedram Journal.

    A detailed work is proposed to be undertaken and is planned to be carried out sequentially using different methodologies:
    i) Leakage current of a CMOS gate is strongly dependent on the input combination applied to its inputs. The ‘sleep’ signal is used to shift in a new set of external inputs and pre-selected internal signals into the circuit with the goal of setting the logic values of all of the internal signals so as to minimize the total leakage current of the circuit.
    ii) Another method which is to be implemented to reduce the leakage current is the “stack effect”. An experimental result has to be taken by using the combinational and sequential circuits.
    iii) By using “Floating gate” methodology there is a possibility of controlling the leakage current in the CMOS circuit. A detailed study and experimental results has to be taken.

    The storage of energy in suitable forms, which can conventionally be converted into the required form, is a present day challenge to the technologists. Energy storage not only reduces the mismatch between supply and demand but also improves the performance and reliability of energy systems. One of the prospective techniques of storing thermal energy is the application of phase change materials (PCMs).

    There are large number of organic and inorganic chemical materials, which can be identified as PCM from the point of view of melting temperature and latent heat of fusion. However, except for the melting point in the operating range, majority of PCMs do not satisfy the criteria required for an adequate storage media (thermal, physical, kinetic and chemical properties). The practical use of latent heat storage is limited due to low thermal conductivity of PCM, variation in thermo-physical properties under extended cycles, phase segregation, subcooling, incongruent melting, volume change and high cost. Hence these problems have to be technically resolved before latent heat storage can be widely used.

    The present study is aimed at developing a thermal energy storage system based on PCM application to solar water heater. It requires investigating the heat transfer processes in such system. It is found that although there are several ways of enhancement like using finned tubes in the LHTS system, the use of multiple families of PCM’s is most promising and is expected to be more reliable as compared to a single PCM model.

    Numerical and experimental investigations will be carried out in order to examine the impact of the key parameters on the thermal performances of the shell and tube type LHTS unit using multiple PCMs during charging (melting) and discharging (freezing). The key parameters influencing the thermal performance of such a system include: the number of PCMs used, the geometrical arrangement, the shape and size of shell, fin arrangement on the shell and PCMs suitable for such application. Thus the proposed study is expected to provide guidelines for system thermal performance analysis and design of optimized thermal energy system using multiple PCMs.

     There is heavy pedestrian demand found in the Indian cities. The transportation planning in India has not considered this demand into the process.
     The theoretical advances in land use/transportation relationships embodied in paradigms such as the jobs housing balance, Neo-traditional Design (NTD) standards and Transit Oriented Development (TOD) rely very heavily on the generation of pedestrian traffic in order to realize their proposed benefits.
     Regional clustering effects of residential and retail land uses suggests that there may in fact be spill over utility beyond the local level in increasing pedestrian accessibility in relatively small neighborhoods. Thus, the aim of my research is:
    • To study the factors influencing pedestrian demand.
    • To evaluate the effects of pedestrian oriented future transportation facilities, land use, and urban form and spatial design alternatives on travel patterns including walk and transit mode shares.
    • To know the determinants of pedestrian behavior and trip-making activity and which measures are more effective in encouraging walking.

    Interest: Water Resources Engineering-Riverfront Development of River Tapi (Surat-India)

    Aim of research work:
    Tapi River is not a perennial river and hence most of the time flow in the river is comparatively less except in the month of monsoon.Thus for the most of the time river cross section remains unutilised. Also the carrying capacity of the river has decreased which creates the flood problem for Surat city. The aim of the study is to increase the carrying capacity of the river along with flood protection and development of the river on both side to create aesthetic view, pedestrian ways, parking zones, gardens, preservation of historical structures, local market places, means of communications etc.

    Ph.D. Topic: Advanced modeling and optimization of casting processes using non-traditional optimization methods
    Supervisor’s Name: Dr. R. Venkata Rao (Professor & Head MED),SVNIT

    Research Interest :
    Casting is one of the important manufacturing processes. Various casting processes are sand casting, die casting, investment casting, continuous casting, shell molding, vaccum sealed casting, high speed casting, tape casting, injection molding, etc. Casting has significant advantages compared with other methods of component manufacture. Castings are generally cheaper than components made in other ways. The casting process in one or other of its forms provides the designer with an unrestricted choice of shape made in a single stage. A casting can usually be made much closer to the chosen design, which provides savings in both material and finishing processes compared with other methods of manufacture. In addition, the cast structure has the highest resistance to deformation at elevated temperatures so that castings have higher creep strengths than wrought and fabricated components.
    Today’s casting processes are caught between the growing need for quality, high process safety, minimal production costs, and short production times. In order to meet these demands, casting process setting parameters have to be chosen in the best possible way. For such optimization it is necessary to represent the casting process in a model. Accuracy and possibility of determining global optimum solution depends on the type of modeling technique used to express the objective functions and constraints in terms of the decision variables. Accurate and reliable model of a casting process can compensate for inability to completely understand and adequately describe the process mechanism. Thus, formulation of an optimization model is the most important task in optimization process. It involves identifying the decision variables to be optimized, expressing the objective functions and constraints as function of decision variables, setting up of feasible ranges for decision variables (known as variable bounds), and finally expressing the optimization problem as a mathematical model in a standard format, which can be solved by an appropriate optimization algorithm.
    The productivity and quality of a casting depend mainly on process parameters, i.e. casting speed, casting temperature, metal composition, cleanliness of the melt, water flow rates in the different cooling zones, etc. Advanced casting processes are having relatively higher initial investment cost, tooling cost, power consumption and maintenance. It is therefore very essential to optimize the various parameters of these processes to get higher material removal rate and low specific energy in order to make them cost effective. The traditional methods of optimization and search do not fare well over a broad spectrum of problem domains. Traditional techniques are not efficient when practical search space is too large. Numerous constraints make the casting process optimization problem more complicated. Traditional techniques such as geometric programming, dynamic programming, branch and bound techniques and quadratic programming may not be suitable to solve these problems and they are inclined to obtain a local optimum solution. This research work proposes new optimization algorithms, which incorporate heuristic non-traditional techniques for direct application in casting design optimization in industries. This will be done to determine the casting objectives of maximum casting rate, minimum casting defects, etc. as functions of casting constraints. These constraints will be evaluated with the aid of heat transfer and solidification models and these models will be integrated with advanced optimization algorithms.
    The proposed work aims to apply the latest advanced optimization algorithms to the problems of casting design optimization. In addition, new optimization algorithms will be developed for related applications.

    Summary of current research
    Research planning :
    [1]Thermodynamic analysis of R-404A/R-508B cascade refrigeration system to optimize the design and operating parameters of the system.
    [2]Development of Experimental set up of R-404A/R-508B cascade refrigeration system for application at -80 0C.
    [3] Comparison of experimental data with literature and simulated results.
    [4] Optimization of R-404A/R-508B cascade refrigeration system.

    Brief of work :
    In a cascade system a series of refrigerants with progressively lower boiling points are used in a series of single stage units. In low temperature refrigeration application including rapid freezing, storage of frozen food, liquefaction of petroleum vapour, manufacturing of dry ice etc. where the required evaporating temperature between -40 0C to -150 0C, the cascade system is often a convenient option, provided two suitable working fluids are chosen. With the increasing recognition of environment protection, a great deal of attention has been devoted to the negative environmental effect of CFCs and HCFCs. Due to the fact that CFCs damage the ozone layer, Montreal Protocol call for halting CFC production. Thus, alternative refrigerants must be found to replace the CFCs. A commonly used refrigerant pair in the past has been R12, R502 and R13 for the high temperature and low temperature stages respectively in cascade refrigeration system. It becomes impendence to look for new refrigerants to substitute for R13 and R12.
    Many studies had focused for alternate to R13 in cascade refrigeration system. Some substitutes have been put forward such as R744, R508b, and R23 etc. Carbon dioxide can be used upto -56 oC due to limitation of its triple point. Since the natural fluid N2O has a triple point below −90 °C and a normal boiling point of −88.7 °C an application of N2O in the region below the application range of carbon dioxide is possible. Below temperatures of −55 °C cascade systems normally use the HFC refrigerants combination of R23/R134a or R404A/R508B.
    The alternative ozone friendly pair R404A and R508b has been chosen as a refrigerant in present study of cascade refrigeration system. R404A is a ternary near azeotropic mixture composed of HFC-125/HFC-143a/HFC134a (44/52/4 wt %). R508b is a relatively new formulation consisting of 46% of R23 with the remainder being R116.
    In present work thermodynamic analysis of R-404A/ R508B cascade refrigeration system was carried to optimize the design and operating parameters of the system. The design and operating parameters considered in that study include (1) Condensing, subcooling, evaporating, and superheating temperatures in the R404A high temperature circuit (2) temperature difference in the cascade heat exchanger and (3) Condensing, subcooling, evaporating, and superheating temperatures in the R 508B low temperature circuit.
    In present resent work first time experimental investigation on R404A/R-508B cascade refrigeration system for refrigeration at -900C is carried out to find performance parameters at various operating conditions.
    Present study also quantifies the exergy destruction of each component, to determine the contribution of each component to that of the overall system efficiency.
    In the design phase of a cascade refrigeration system, an important issue is the means of determining the optimal condensing temperature of a cascade-condenser under particular design conditions, such as condensing temperature, evaporating temperature and the temperature difference between the high and low circuits in cascade-condenser.
    In Present work thermodynamic energy and exergy analysis is carried out to determine the optimal condensing temperature of the cascade-condenser in a low-temperature R-404A/R-508B cascade refrigeration system for various values of the design parameters, such as the condensing temperature, the evaporating temperature, and the temperature difference between the high and low circuits in the cascade-condenser.
    To facilitate prediction of optimum performance parameters, performance trends with variation in the design parameters and operating variables has been presented in present work. Relevant expressions have been developed to serve as guidelines to the user for selecting appropriate design parameters like intermediate temperature so that the system yields optimum performance.

    Research Area: Nonvolatile Memories (Likely to register in January 2010)
    Very large scale integration (VLSI) is most emerging field in electronics engineering nowadays. To work in this field, there are three broad approaches.
    1. Front end design.
    2. Back end design.
    3. Technology.

    The embedded product industry expects a perfect non-volatile memory to meet all requirements for storage of both code and data. Flash memories are the ideal choice for this. Popular flash memories are NAND flash and NOR flash memories. Both the types have their own distinct positive and negative performance characteristics. However, there is no such perfect memory at all.
    Advancements in Quantum Computing and Quantum Dot Devices have made flash memories more explorable from research point of view. A lot of work is currently going on across the globe in this field for optimization of various parameters including interfaces, capability and reliability.

    Ph.D. Topic: Multiple attribute decision making in the manufacturing environment
    Supervisor’s Name: Dr. R. Venkata Rao (Professor & Head MED), SVNIT Surat

    SUMMARY OF CURRENT RESEARCH WORK:
    Manufacturing industries are compelled to move away from traditional setups to more responsive and dynamic ones. Many new concepts have emerged from these changes, sustained by strategies aimed at meeting the challenges arising from global markets. Product attributes like quality, reliability, cost, life-cycle prediction, and the organizational ability to meet market pressures like delivery and service, have come into focus. Fast-changing technologies on the product front cautioned the need for an equally fast response from the manufacturing industries. To meet the challenges, manufacturing industries have to select appropriate manufacturing strategies, product designs, manufacturing processes, work piece and tool materials, machinery and equipment, etc. The selection decisions are complex, as decision making is more challenging today. So, there is a need for simple, systematic, and logical methods or mathematical tools to guide decision makers in considering a number of selection criteria and their interrelations and can make the quick and good decisions. The objective is to develop the mathematical models for the complex decision making problems and applications of these decision making methods to real case studies of the manufacturing environment.

    Aims and objectives: Continuous worldwide increase in high-scale production of dairy products leads to the constant generation of vast amounts of liquid by-product, whey. Disposal of liquid whey is costly due to its high biological oxygen demand (BOD) and water content. More than 90% of whey BOD is due to lactose. Therefore, the dairy industry will have to decrease the lactose concentration and recover enormous amounts of lactose from whey and effluent streams before discharging the waste water into the environment. Recovery of these components will resolve the issue of high BOD/ COD in the effluent streams. Conventional techniques to recover the lactose are time consuming and not effective enough. The long induction time and slow crystallization rate of conventional lactose recovery process is due to large metastable zone width, which requires very high supersaturation for induction to occur. Sonocrystallization(application of ultrasound) not only reduces the induction time at low supersaturations, but also narrows the metastable zone width. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effectiveness of sonocrystallization as an efficient method for the recovery of lactose from whey and the various parameters affecting the recovery of lactose in the anti-solvent acetone.

    Research Planning: The various parameters (Effect of sonication time, sonication power, initial concentration of lactose, effect of pH and concentration of the anti-solvent acetone) in the recovery of lactose from reconstituted lactose solutions and whey procured from the local dairy are being studied.

    Title: Nanoparticle synthesis for advanced applications

    Supervisor : Prof. Z. V. P. Murthy, Professor in Chemical Engineering, SVNIT-Surat.

    Our aim is in situ synthesis of nanometallic particles with microemulsion technique alongwith applicability. Effect of various important operating variables on synthesized nanoparticles size, size distribution, structure and stability is studied. Rare work is focused on in situ synthesis oriented towards applicability in catalysis and heat transfer applications. Catalysis and heat transfer applications being the key part in economy of chemical industry, the nanocatalyst and nanofluid (for heat transfer applications) preparation can play a vital role. Microemulsion method is a promising nanoparticle preparation method with precise control over particle size. Water in oil microemulsion behaves like a nanoreactor because it contains water droplets dispersed in hydrocarbon. Various important operating parameters like, water content and molar ratio of reducing agent to that of the reagent, type of reducing agent, type of solvent, nature of surfactant and co surfactant, surfactant concentration, were varied. The effect on size, size distribution, structure and stability were studied. The optimum conditions were identified giving most stable and monodisperse nanoparticles. Nanocatalysts prepared by novel technique of deposition of as synthesized nanoparticles on high surface area support. Their catalytic activity and selectivity for industrial application are to be compared with conventional bulk catalyst. Nanofluids can be also prepared from the thus synthesized particles as nanometallic particles on dispersion, can improve conductivity of solvent at great extent.

    Proposed Title : Interfacial Stability and Dynamics of Complex Fluids
    Supervisor : Prof. Z. V. P. Murthy, Professor in Chemical Engineering, SVNIT-Surat.
    Aim and Objectives:
    To study the factors affecting stability of thin film.
    To explore the effects of various parameters on interfacial stability in complex systems.
    To study rheological behavior and interfacial tensiometry of selected complex fluids including
    gels, micro-gels, emulsions, suspensions, wet granular materials, etc., effect of additives and
    various types of flow geometries. (shear, micro channels, narrow channels, microfluidics, etc.)
    To find the properties of ‘Liquid Bridge’ and ‘Thin Films’ in complex systems.
    Brief Description:
    ‘Stability of interface’ falls under the broad area of Interfacial Engineering which is an emerging
    branch of Chemical Engineering. In most of the multiphase systems like liquid-liquid
    emulsions, solid-liquid or liquid-gas systems, the droplets or particles in the dispersed phase are
    surrounded by the liquid. Often, the thin film of liquid adhered to the droplets or particles of the
    dispersed phase controls the rate of mass transfer across the phases. Controlling the size of
    droplets in emulsions/gels is very important not only for chemical processing of materials but also
    for its ease in final end usage particularly for personal care products. Further, as stability of
    nanoparticles is very challenging problem, the proposed study of interfacial stability in complex
    fluids may provide few findings useful for preparation of well-engineered emulsions or
    multiphase systems, encapsulation of drug, nanoparticles, nanomedicine, etc. More applications of
    the proposed study may be helpful in Nanotechnology, Stability of nanoparticles, Controlled synthesis of monolayers or bilayers, Coatings, Well engineered emulsions for, Food products, Personal care products, io-Medical Engineering / Targeted drug delivery, Drugs: for targeted drug delivery, Carrier/vehicle for nanoparticles/nanomedicines, Removal of chocking in transportation wet granular materials, Catalysts, Handling of partially dried solids, Highly concentrated slurries from crystallizers, evaporators, Development of ‘Controlled Reactors’, Efficient combustion of fuel coming as liquid jet or spray from the nozzle. Encapsulation of highly sensitive materials.

    Academic Experience : 4 years
    International Conference :01
    Current Research Interest: Digital Inpainting based Image Restoration, Video inpainting and object separation, Computer Tomography.
    SUMMARY OF CURRENT RESEARCH WORK:
    Inpainting is an image interpolation problem with broad applications in image and vision analysis. Digital inpainting is related to automatic filling-in of user-selected regions in digital images. It refers to removal of image defects such as scratches and blotches as well as removal of disturbing objects as, for instance, subtitles, logos, dates etc., and restoring the same with information surrounding them, so that it blend seamlessly with rest of the image.

    An extensive survey of previous work related to the digital inpainting is presented to fill in the gap and a new algorithm is proposed, which is motivated by the quality of results, easier implementation, efficiency, and effectiveness. The restored images obtained with this algorithm look plausible in general and surprisingly good in some cases. In addition, it is also having edge over other algorithms in terms of computation time and image quality while filling-in large region.

    Research Interest: Database Security,Information Security,Data Mining
    SUMMARY OF CURRENT RESEARCH WORK:
    (ON GOING PHD work on “Detecting Malicious Transactions in Database” in the area of Database Security)

    Data represent today a valuable asset for companies and organizations and must be protected. Several mechanisms needed to protect data, such as authentication, user privileges, encryption, and auditing, have been implemented in commercial DBMS. However, typical database security mechanisms are not able to detect and handle many data security attacks. In fact, malicious transactions executed by unauthorized users that may gain access to the database by exploring system vulnerabilities and unauthorized database transactions executed by authorized users cannot be detected and stopped by typical security mechanisms. Many researchers are working on increasing the intrusion detection efficiency and accuracy. But most of these efforts are to detect the intrusions at network or operating system level. They are not capable of detecting corruption data due to malicious transactions in databases. Our aims are to investigate the approach of detecting the malicious transactions and ways to recover the data from those malicious transactions.

    Name : TIMBADIYA PRAFULKUMAR VASHARAMBHAI
    Institute: S.V.National Institute of Technology-Surat (SVNIT-Surat),Gujarat
    (Institute of National Importance)
    Designation and Department : Lecturer, CIVIL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT, S.V.N.I.T-Surat, Gujarat.
    Date of birth: 3.11.1980, Sex : Male
    Qualification: M.E.(Water Resources Engineering)
    Academic Experience: 5 years
    Research Experirnce: 2years
    National Conference paper (presented): 5

    Research Interest: Surfacewater hydrology, Hydrodynamic Modelling, River Analysis System

    SUMMARY OF CURRENT RESEARCH WORK:
    Prediction of water availability in space and time has been a challenging job to the Hydraulic Engineers. The flood and drought condition in our country has been more frequent in the recent past due to changing climatic conditions of the world. The Southern Gujarat, in general, and the surrounding area near Surat, in particular, are highly prone to the flood and suffered huge tangible and intangible damages in the past, for instance year 2006 flood alone has caused a loss of Rs.2100 crores to the Surat city. Prediction of river stage during the flood requires mathematical modeling of the river to take decision related to the flood protection and disaster management work. Development of mathematical model for the Tapi River from Ukai Dam to Surat City (length of river-106 km) is challenging task because flows in the natural river are unsteady and nonuniform in nature. For development of mathematical model in fully dynamic condition, requires solution of Saint Venants equation using numerical methods. Attempt is being made to develop mathematical model of Tapi river from Ukai Dam to Hope Bridge (Surat city) using HEC-RAS (Hydrologic Engineering Center-River Analysis System). The development of such model requires geometric and hydrologic data of the river and its basin. The said data are being collected from the corresponding agencies like SMC (Surat Municipal Corporation), SIC (Surat Irrigation Circle- Govt. of Gujarat). Simulation of flood-2006 and corresponding stage would be carried out using developed model of Tapi River from Ukai Dam to Hope Bridge (Surat city) using geometric data of the lower Tapi basin (which include river cross section, its connectivity, inline hydraulic structure and roughness value of the channel) along with Inflow hydrograph at Ukai dam and Stage hydrograph at Hope Bridge (Surat city). The developed model will be validated by using the stage and flood hydrographs at Kakrapar weir, which is just 22 km downstream of Ukai dam. The effort will also be made to take into account spreading of flood plain area at higher discharges using MIKE-Flood hydrodynamic software. The model developed will be useful in prediction of water level in the Surat city for different discharges and corresponding spread area.

    Dear Dr. Krishna Vedula

    It is great that you are bringing Indian and US researchers closer through this programme. There are certain things which can be looked into with just co-guidng such as, partial funding for equipments purchase, attending conferences/Journals, etc., that can be met by US faculty with their existing projects.

    Why not have Indians Register at US universities with US guide as well, and take a mentor at the indian side. Ofcourse the financial details are to be worked out.

    My team comprises of 5 researchers working in the areas, Resource Management in Grid Computing using Cognitive Agents, Group Communications Using Agents in MANETs, Information Fusion in WSN using Cognitive Agents, Cgnitive Agents based Information Management in VANETs, Service Discovery and Auction Mechanisms in M-commerce. All the students are doing Ph.D under VTU, Belgaum.

    • Krishna Vedula Says:

      Sunil, all these are excellent thoughts. Thank you. Right now we need specific Indian faculty members interested in the proposed Program to provide their brief bio and research interest here as Parimal has done below.

  143. H T Jadhav Says:

    I received BE in Electrical Engineering and ME in Power Systems in 1995 and 2002 respectively from GCOE Karad, MS, India and presently working as an Assistant Professor in Rajarambapu Institute of Technology Sakharale, Maharashtra. I have total teaching experience of 14 years at undergraduate level and my areas of interests includes Power Electronics, Power system and Wind Energy Systems. Under the guidance of Dr. Roy of SVNIT, Surat, I wish to carry out my Ph D work in the area of Wind Energy Integration. The brief theme of the proposed work is cited below.

    My proposed research work intends to study the impact of not having the “Fault Ride Through” capability in the Indian wind farms for large penetration of wind power. The relevant network models will be developed and the simulation studies will be conducted to ascertain the requirement of such facility. The proposed work will also include the model development and representation of wind turbines for large system stability studies.

    1. Title : Hardware Software Co-Implementation and Evaluation of Several Schemes of Voice Prompting, Alarming and Indication on Machines for Auto Diagnostics supporting localization

    2. Introduction : We use machines every in our daily use. The complex machines would be ranging as small as like sewing machine, computer printer, washing machine, dish washers, microwave ovens, scooters, bikes etc. and as big as like a web printing machine, small and large vehicles, aircrafts, power generation and distribution plants, gas stations and what’s not? The list will go on expanding with out limit. All these machines use standard conventional prompting and indicating elements like displays and buzzers.

    Electronics has got evolved a lot in-terms of growth of semiconductor development, it is possible now to embedded audio prompting, alarming and indicating options along with the standard conventional prompting, alarming and indicating (Henceforth we will call it PAI in this document) elements.

    This research is based on identifying and implementing various methods possible in embedding voice PAI by advancements in electronics.

    4. Latest technological trends in the proposed area: There are audio chips available with features of sampling, coding and storage in one semiconductor package.
    There is availability of various very good MP3 or OGG encoding and decoding semiconductor devices and flash memories.
    It is possible to implement audio sampling and coding with custom designs on FPGAs.

    5. Rationale: There is very less awareness about audio implantation of this kind in local industries. This will be a step in creating and increasing awareness providing methodology.

    6. Aim: To implement and evaluate various options of enabling machines audio indicating, prompting and alarming enabled.

    7. Objectives: Enable Machines with audio by means of 1. Dedicated Sound Chips for Sampling, Coding and Storing, 2. Professional encoding-decoding devices and External Flash Storage, 3. FPGA implementation

    8. Outcome/ Deliverables of the proposed work :
    This research is based on implementing various options making machines audio enable in-terms of PAI. So it is expected to have minimum there various options designed for study and evaluation purpose.
    1. An Add-on Card with on chip sampling, coding and storage.
    2. An Add-on Card with professional audio encoding-decoding chip and external flash storage option.
    3. FPGA implementation of Audio PAI.

    9. Time Plan :
    1. Phase I: Study embedded systems, audio sampling techniques, audio encoding and decoding option and simulations and categorize machines PAI needs.
    2. Phase II: Design and implementation of audio PAI interface with help of dedicate audio sampling, coding and storage devices.
