1. INVESTIGATION OF CONVECTIVE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT USING DIFFERENT TURBULATORS

It is the experimentation on Air/Water heat exchanger. Convective heat transfer coefficient of air is very less. Experimentation is carried out to improve it. Investigation of convective heat transfer coefficient of air with and without turbulators is made. Air/Water Heat exchangers are used in Refrigeration and Air-conditioning units.

2. INVESTIGATION OF ENHANCEMENT IN CONDENSATION HEAT TRANSFER   COEFFICIENT USING MICRO-FIN TUBE

28-03-07_1713

Experimentation is carried on Vapour Compression Refrigeration System. Different alternative refrigerants are tested and performance of the system is checked. Alternative testing is done using Micro-fin tubes in condenser. Objective of this experimentation is to reduce the size of the condenser.

3. DEVELOPMENT OF LATENT HEAT ENERGY STORAGE FOR SOLAR APPLICATIONS

Thermal Energy Storage is used in solar thermal applications. To reduce the size of energy storage sensible heat can be replaced with latent form. Latent thermal energy storage works at constant temperature with less volume.

4. ULTRASONIC MEASUREMENT OF FLUID FILM THICKNESS IN A BEARING

Fluid film thickness in a journal bearing is measured by using Ultrasonic technique. It is useful in online measurement of fluid film thickness in various micro applications of engineering where lubrication is essential.
