Under Graduate Level:
 Plant Design:
Sulpholane Production Plant
 Experimental:
Management of hazardous waste from electroplating industry.
Stepwise procedure was adopted for treatment of electroplating waste containing heavy
metals. Atomic absorption spectrophotometer was used to analyze the heavy metals
present in the waste. Calculated amount lime was used to precipitate the heavy metals at
optimum PH. Sludge was solidified/stabilized by using optimum combination of lime, fly
ash and cement.
Graduate Level:
Second Law analysis of compressible flow through constant and
variable area duct.
Efficient utilization of energy is primary objective in designing a
thermodynamics system. This useful energy can be destroyed due to the intrinsic irreversibility
associated within the process components. Unfortunately, irreversibility cannot be avoided, but
it can be minimized in order to save the available energy. The minimization can be achieved if
the irreversibility can be identified in the process components. Second law analysis provides a
useful tool to identify the irreversibility in any thermal system. This study presents the
investigation of local and total entropy generation in compressible flow through diffuser. Air is
used as fluid. Constant wall temperature and constant heat flux is applied at wall. Twodimensional solution of velocity and temperature fields are obtained using CFD code FLUENT.
The distribution of the entropy generation rate is investigated throughout the volume of the fluid
as it flows through the diffuser. Region of high entropy production in diffuser has been
predicted. The main parameter considered here is the desired inlet expansion angle
corresponding to the minimum entropy generation at specified conditions. The numerical study
indicates that by successfully predicting the distribution of irreversibility, re-design efforts can
be more carefully focused on specific regions with highest entropy production.
