I am experienced in the development of software tools and application of computational fluid dynamics in the field of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
I have expertise in the following subjects:
I also have experience in Research and Development in Automotive Industry.
Working on mesh adaptation and model order reduction
in the industrial pillar at the European Union's Horizon 2020 project called eFlows4HPC.
Collaboration with researchers from Spain (CIMNE and BSC), Italy (SISSA), France (INRIA) etc. and industrial partners from Siemens.
Studied the dynamics of flow of SARS-Cov-2 virus through respiratory
droplets in a conference room during meetings.
As recognized by WHO, physical meetings are a potential vector for spread of the respiratory virus. Using fluid dynamics studies we numerically studied meeting scenarios in closed conference rooms. The research is published in Physics of Fluids.
Integrated radiation modules in NICAM - a high resolution weather forecasting software.
The Non-hydrostatic Icosahedral Atmospheric Model (NICAM) software is written in modern Fortran language, designed to run on high-performance computing clusters, using MPI and OpenACC. NICAM is a global forecasting system with a capability of sub-kilometer resolution.
Learned the process of effective teaching from the best teachers in the country. Assisted the professor by creating animations, simulations and other teaching aids for interactive teaching. Learnt the art of question paper preparation and grading such that the paper provides a fair chance to students of different caliber.
Taught many courses related to Aerospace engineering and CFD, to BTech and MTech students. Provided guidance to many groups of students for projects, seminars and MTech thesis. Conducted experimental practicals for student groups using wind tunnels. Worked in organizing of AeSI national conference.
Worked on design and analysis of automobile and diesel generator engines using tools like ProE and Ansys Fluent. Worked on many individual and team projects. One of the projects went on for a patent, for which the team received an innovation award from the company.
Worked on design and development of heavy commercial vehicle chassis and tipper body. Worked on transfer of projects from Zahirabad to Pune. Worked on replication of older design drawings and CAD models.
The thesis makes two important contributions to the field of multiphase flow analysis. The first contribution is the Harten-Lax-van Leer contact preserving Riemann solver for two-phase flows. The second contribution is the development of an extremely accurate and efficient interface reconstruction technique which works with a Riemann solver. The two contributions together produce very efficient and accurate solutions to problems involving two-phase flows.
