Areas of Interest
Lattice Boltzmann Method - Lattice Boltzmann method is novel computational tool based on kinetic theory of gases and Boltzmann equation. It comes under the class of mesoscopic numerical tool. Its use as a CFD tool in varying area of fields have been greatly acknowledged. , Magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) convection - MHD with the natural/forced convection heat transfer has an extensive theoretical as well as engineering applications, such as crystallization in semiconductors production (maintain crystal growth and minimizing fluid circulation by convection), blankets of liquid metal utilized for fusion reactors. My research is intended towards the understanding of magnetic field accompanied convection in systems of industrial relevance by using in house developed LBM code. , Non-Newtonian rheology - Most of the fluids handled or needed in various industrial as well as household applications are of non-Newtonian type (i.e., non-linear dependence of shear stress with shear rate). The non-Newtonian fluids can be classified into two broad types based on industrial relevance, i.e., high molecular weight polymeric materials and multiphase mixtures. My work is concerned with the understanding of behaviour of such fluids under convective heat transfer. , Heat Transfer in enclosures - The cavity with a moving boundary is an interesting problem in a variety of thermal engineering applications, such as cooling of electronic devices and MEMS applications, furnaces, lubrication technologies, high-performance building insulation, multi-shield structures used for nuclear reactors, food processing, glass production, solar power collectors, drying technologies, chemical processing equipment and others.
