      Internships done Abroad by Our Students

      Shawn Jacob (UR15ME151)
      Internship at Rajamangala University of Technology, Thailand

      I have done my internship at Rajamangala University of Technology, Srivijaya Faculty of Engineering, Songkhla, Thailand. I was there for a duration of two months where I worked under my guide Dr Marwan Affandi who is a professor there. I worked on the 'CAD modelling of a caravan using SOLIDWORKS 2016'. The basic mechanics of the designed caravan was studied. I also had the opportunity to teach 2 batches of mechanical engineering students during my internship there. I also had the opportunity to travel within the country and experience their rich and varied culture. Overall, it was a very good experience.

      Nihal Kumar (UL15ME013)
      Internship at METALEX GROUP, Ghana from June 2018 to September 2018.
      In METALEX Group, West Africa, I had a very rich experience on an impressive range of machinery which includes Roofing profile machines, Coating machine, Razor-wire cutting machine, Brick-making machine, for floor and roofing tiles. Likewise I learnt how to make a program and feed the program for the plasma & oxy-acetylene cutting machine. I also had an opportunity to fix the existing defect in some of the machinery in the company. It was a very good industry exposure and hands on experience in the field of manufacturing. I also had an opportunity to interact with people of different culture.

      Development of Non- Asbestos Organic Brake Friction Materials
      Research Scholar: Mr. J. Sudhan Raj, RR13ME003
      under the guidance of Dr. T. V. Christy,
      Professor of Department of Mechanical Engineering.

      The most paramount safety aspect of an automobile is its brake system, which must stop the vehicle and also do so reliably under varying conditions. During a cessation, the kinetic energy of a moving conveyance is converted to heat at the sliding interface of the friction pair. Emission of dust from asbestos during braking causes lung diseases. The raised levels of awareness in health hazards due to asbestos led to non-asbestos friction composites automotive brake disc pads, shoes, linings, blocks, clutch facings, etc.

      Fabrication and characterization of Al syntactic foams
      Research Associate: Mr. Jerin Jose
      under the guidance of Dr. T. V. Christy,
      Professor of Department of Mechanical Engineering.
      Syntactic foams are composite materials synthesized by filling a metal, polymer,or ceramic matrix with hollow spheres called micro-balloons or cenospheres.The presence of hollow particles results in lower density, higher specific strength (strength divided by density), lower coefficient of thermal expansion, and, in some cases, radar or sonartransparency. Tailorability is one of the biggest advantages of these materials. The matrix material can be selected from almost any metal, polymer, or ceramic. Micro-balloons are available in a variety of sizes and materials, including glass microspheres, cenospheres, carbon, and polymers.
      --> Micro and Nano Heat Transfer Laboratory

      Micro and Nano fabrication techniques have revolutionized the cooling industries as the micro and nano structures enhances boiling heat transfer of cooling devices in many folds. Also micro structures used as a wick structures which are critical for the smooth operation of passive heat transfer devices such as heat pipes and thermosyphons. Development of such micro and nanostructure with good capillarity lead to the possibilities of miniaturization by improving the performance.

      Miniature loop heat pipes for cooling high heat flux devices
      The miniaturization and rapidly increasing heat loads of the new electronic devices put forward the challenge of efficient cooling in these devices. This is because of the high heat flux produced by ultra large scale of integration of electronic components into these devices. The present electronic components are very compact in size and the area available for heat dissipation in these devices is very less.

      Composites in Combat: Composites for Military Vehicles

      Soldiers globally are committed to their duty of protecting the country and therefore superior technologies are essential to protect them. One such essential technology is in the development of Composite Materials. The increasing use of composites and innovations in fabrication has enabled composite components to satisfy the need for military vehicle components. Armoured vehicles have traditionally used steel armour. However, this gives rise to heavy structures that provide logistical problems in transporting the vehicles to a battle site.

      Biomass waste to energy for automotive applications
      The world energy production is based mainly on fossil fuels like crude oil, natural gas and coal. Increase in energy demand results in increasing fossil fuels consumption, which in turn contributes significantly to the environmental pollution and climatic changes. Biomass is considered to be one of the important solutions for substituting the fossil fuel resources. It has a unique potential for making a positive environmental impact, i.e., the CO2 emitted in processing the biomass would be absorbed by the fresh biomass.

      Clean and Green Technology to overcome health risks associated with cutting fluids in manufacturing industries

      Machining operation plays a very important role in the manufacture of products. Huge quantity of cutting fluids are used in metal cutting industries for a variety of reasons such as improving tool life, reducing thermal distortion, lubricating the contact zones, preventing tool galling and seizure, improving surface finish and flushing away chips from the cutting zone etc. Despite the wide recognition of the aforementioned benefits, the negative aspects of cutting fluids become a serious issue for consideration in the recent years.
