Plant Residue That Generates Electricity: EIT Academics Contribute To Sustainability Education In India

June 13, 2022 2:45 pm
Biomass power production will play an important part in the sustainable energy future. So when the call came to academically contribute to sustainability, three EIT academics jumped at the opportunity. Dr Harisinh Parmar our Lab coordinator, Dr Milind Siddhpura, Course coordinator for Mechanical Engineering and Dr Arti Siddhpura a Lecturer...Read More

A novel settling tank for produced water treatment: CFD simulations and PIV experiments

August 20, 2019 7:28 am
Removal of solids is a critical step in the treatment of produced water generated by offshore hydrocarbon exploration. Present work evaluates a new design of a settling tank that can be used for continuous separation of fine particles from produced water. The novelty of the design lies in its ability generate...Read More

Simultaneous measurements of two phases using an optical probe

July 6, 2019 7:37 am
For a detailed characterisation of multiphase flows, a local measurement technique that is capable of quantifying both continuous and dispersed phases has to be employed. In the present study, a new optical probe was tested for its ability to provide simultaneous local measurements of gas and liquid/solid in a three-phase...Read More

Influence of jet–jet interaction on droplet size and jet instability in immiscible liquid–liquid system

November 13, 2014 8:03 am
This work investigates the effects of multiple jet interactions and single jet instability on jet breakup and droplet size using experimental and computational techniques. In particular, the jet separation distance, jet breakup length and droplet diameter were measured as a function of initial nozzle separation distance and jet volumetric flow...Read More

Influence of Microwaves on the Water Surface Tension

August 7, 2014 8:08 am
In this study, microwave irradiation was applied to hanging droplets of both water and ethylene glycol. Once the irradiation had ceased and the droplet was allowed to return to its original temperature, it was found that the surface tension of ethylene glycol returned to its original value. In contrast, the...Read More

Melt Strength and Thermal Properties of Organic Peroxide Modified Virgin and Recycled HDPE

April 6, 2013 12:05 pm
Commercial blow moulding grade recycled high density polyethylene (r-HDPE) and blow moulding grade virgin HDPE were reactively extruded with various compositions (0.00 to 0.15 %) of different peroxides in a twin screw extruder. The aim was to improve the melt strength properties of a blow moulding grade HDPE homopolymer –...Read More

Hydrodynamics of a rectangular liquid JET in an immiscible liquid–liquid system

December 14, 2011 11:24 am
Volume of fluid and continuum surface force methodologies were applied to two- and three-dimensionally model the motion of a liquid jet injected vertically downward from a rectangular nozzle into another immiscible liquid. Grid independent solutions were obtained for a 10 mm2 nozzle with aspect ratios in the range 1–10. It was found...Read More

Rheological and molecular properties of organic peroxide induced long chain branching of recycled and virgin high density polyethylene resin

May 21, 2009 11:50 am
Commercial blow molding grade recycled high density polyethylene (R-HDPE) and blow molding grade virgin high density polyethylene (V-HDPE) were reactively extruded with various compositions (0.00–0.15% wt/wt) of different peroxides in a twin screw extruder. The aim was to produce the extended chain mechanism of a blow molding grade HDPE photopolymer—a...Read More
