Title: “Experimental Study and Development of Titanium (Ti) - Tantalum (Ta) Alloys for Biomedical Applications”

In this project proposal, the phase stability and elastic modulus of Ti–Ta simple binary alloys as well as alloys with small additions of ternary elements have to be study. The binary alloy from a nominal 8 to 28 wt.% Ta is first explored using a combinatorial approach. This approach included Laser Engineered Net Shape (LENS) processing of materials and subsequent characterization by instrumented indentation and site specific Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM/SEM). The composition range of 15 to 75 wt.% Ta is further explored by more traditional methods that included vacuum arc melting high purity elements, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and modulus measurements by ultrasonic methods. Beyond the simple binary, alloys with low levels of ternary elements, oxygen, aluminum, zirconium and small additions of rare earth oxides are to be investigated.

Title: “Modification of Metal Surfaces for High Temperature Applications using Thermal barrier Coating”

The design of an engineering surface is concerned with preparing a surface with suitable modifications, so as to meet the functional requirements of the engineering components. Thermal sprayed coatings give high strength at elevated temperatures, wear resistance, resistanceto chemicalreaction,andalsocorrosion protection on engineering components. In Aerospace industry, the durability and efficiency of high temperature components are improved by the usage of thermal barrier coatings (TBC). In order to characterise the TBC, it requires a better understanding of thermal properties along with their failure mechanisms which are to be thoroughly investigated to estimate their performance and life at high temperature applications. Thermal barrier (TB) and thermal cycling resistance (TCR) parameters play a important role. Thermal tests were carried out on different types of commonly used industrial TBC coatings namely, Alumina (A), Alumina-Titania (AT)) and partially stabilized zirconia (PSZ) for characterization. The presentwork also highlights about the usage of Taguchi design method, Genetic programming for the prediction of Maximum Thermal Barrier and Thermal Cycling Resistance (failure) of the above TBC for different parameters used at high temperatures. In this regard, a theoretical modelling has been suggested using vast experimental data for life prediction of TBC. It can also be used for the prediction and forecasting of TBC characteristics.

Title: “Role of Displacement and Strain of Third Body in Tribosystem”

                In all mechanical systems were in either motion or force is transmitted from one location to another location relative motion between two components takes place. For example, in case of bearings there will be displacement discontinuity between shaft and bearings. This discontinuity of displacement gives rise to discontinuity in velocity. These kinematic discontinuities give rise to wear and loss of energy. Different engineering solutions like lubricating giving hard coatings have been tried.

Title: “Material Strain Rate Response in Abrasive Wear”

            Titanium and its alloys are extremely used in aerospace, because of their special features being light weight and more tough. Titanium alloys find extensive use in turbine blades of aero engine. These aero engines are being demanded to run at high rate as possible so that flight timings are minimized. The special demand for motor to run at high speed also brings search for materials which could accomplish the desired requirement. Titanium and its alloys are extensively used which bridges the material requirement in manufacturing of aerospace components. These titanium alloy components used in aerospace industries are subjected to both complicated loading and thermal exposure. These complicated environment demands technical information which is required in designing of components. The more specific requirement in design is involving the information on wear and thermal effects. The literature survey indicates inadequate studies on effect of load and speed during relative motion.Response of these Titanium alloys under different load level and speed level during contact is investigated.

Title: “Experimental investigation of performance and emission characteristics of biodiesel”

            Biodiesel is a fatty acid alkyl ester which is renewable, biodegradable and non-toxic fuel which can be derived from any vegetable oil and animal fats. Vegetable oils and animal fats in their raw form have high viscosity that makes them unsuitable as fuels for diesel engines. Transesterification is one of the well-known process by which fats and oils are converted into biodiesel. The reaction often makes use of acid/base catalyst. The process of transesterification is affected by the mode of reaction condition, molar ratio of alcohol to oil, type of alcohol, type and amount of catalysts, reaction time and temperature and purity of reactants. The present study consists of the production of biodiesel from Dairy scum oil and Waste Vegetable oil with the use of sodium hydroxide as a catalyst.

Title:“A sustainable alternative fuel for use in rural areas in C I engines”

            Many earlier workers have blended vegetable oils with diesel fuel in different proportions and tried them in engines. Up to 50 % blending is considered tolerable without significantly altering the time between servicing the engine though there is no consensus about the blend percentage, whether it should be 50 or far less. Recently a cursory work has come to light where a blend with a small percentage of volatile solvents gave rise to viscosity reduction of the oil to acceptable levels for use in diesel engines. This however requires a confirmation from a detailed study of the cause and extent of viscosity reduction of different vegetable oils.

Title: “Effect of injection pressure and injection timing on diesel engine by performance and emission characteristics fueled with dairy waste oil”

The rapidly increasing consumption of fossil fuel and petroleum products has been a matter of concern for many countries which import crude oil. It causes huge foreign out-go on one hand and increasing exhaust emissions on the other. Hence it becomes necessary for the development of renewable energy sources. Vegetable oils have capability to solve this problem because they are renewable in nature and lead to reduction in environmental pollution. Biodiesel developed from non-edible oils and other waste resources promise to be a very important prospective alternative fuel for diesel engines. Biodiesel commands crucial advantages such as technical feasibility of blending in any ratio with diesel fuel, use of existing storage facilities, superiority from emission reduction etc. The major concern in biofuel usage is the higher production cost. This problem can be addressed by mixing cheaper raw materials with nonedible oils for biodiesel production. In the present work it is proposed to produce dairy scum oil. Diesel engines are the prime movers that are highly efficient compared to their counter part of petrol engines. Renewable fuels like biodiesel and their blends are suitable and substitute for different applications as they are renewable in nature and provide satisfaction for fossil fuels of diesel which are exhaustible in nature and add burden to the Indian economy. In this direction the experiments were planned on the diesel engines to study the effects of Dairy scum oil. Experiments were conducted in accordance with the standard procedure. This study revealed that implementing the injection pressure up to 200 bars induces significant improvement in the performance characteristics.

Title: “Mechanical Exoskeleton for the Disabled ( Lower Limb)”

            Robotics has supplemented humans and automated several facets of life and finds unprecedented scope for research and development in real time applications. Exoskeleton is a super specialized area of robotics for supplementing human movements. Exoskeletons can be mainly configured either as rehabilitative exoskeletons for medical rehabilitation (orthosis)and as augmentative exoskeletons for augmentation of human activities like in combat operations. The proposed paper focuses on research and development of a rehabilitative exoskeleton designed as skeletal frame to support and protect human limbs for orthosis which is distinct from prosthesis which does not work in tandem with human body movement. Exoskeleton is outside skeleton as against the endoskeleton which is internal skeleton of the human body. The rehabilitative exoskeleton presented in this research paper is a wearable mobile machine powered by a system of electric motors, pneumatics, levers, hydraulics, or a combination of technologies that allow for limb movement with increased strength and endurance. The Automated Exoskeleton being proposed in this paper is an automated lower limb exoskeleton to enhance the personal mobility of handicapped persons that facilitates walking standing and sitting/lifting. In our mechanical system based design, we attempt to construct a lower limb that assists human locomotion. The Automated Exoskeleton system is designed to mechanize and motorize human lower limb extremity and it operates synchronously as the human natural movement. The aim of exoskeleton actuator system is to withstand forces of external movement by user during walking, sitting, and standing motions. The system is configured to reduce the cost of the present commercial exoskeleton drastically which can be afforded by the common man. The purpose of our design revolves around the concept of enhancing the human body and helping the paralyzed/handicapped to walk through the use of the exoskeleton. The rehabilitative exoskeleton will improve the postural balance function of the human user to naturalize body movements specifically during tasks of standing and walking, in a clinical or otherwise real-life environment.

Title: “Analysis of fuel characteristics and performance parameters of Diesel engine using pongamia oil blends”

The increasing awareness of the depletion of fossil fuels resources and the environmentalpollution caused due to the extensive use of these fuels creating a serious requirement in replacing the fossil fuels by the biofuels. The biofuels has an environmental benefits compared to any other renewable forms of energy resources. Since it creates the product of non toxic and biodegradable material it creates an opportunity to clean the polluted environment caused due to fossil fuels. The products such obtained from the biomass that we are concentrating on no edible vegetable oils (karanja oil) to use directly in most diesel engine without requiring extensive engine modification, however the availability of oil tomeet the demand is over a major issues and also the cost of the karanja oil is a major hurdle to its commercialization in comparison to petroleum based diesel fuel. The high cost of oil is primarily due to the seasonal availability of fresh seeds, the processing and the transportation costs; however the cake produced after the extraction of oil is used as fertilizers. The karanja oil in its crude from will have organic sticky and wax materials which in turn results in high viscosity, density and also flash point. To reduce this property the karanja oil is blended with various proportion of petrol, such as 88% Pongamia + 12% petrol, 86% Pongamia + 14% petrol, 84% Pongamia + 16% petrol and one more sample is taken which is 100% pongamia. Since petrol is highly solvent in nature the karanja oil can be blended easily with any proportions required for the study. The sample prepared are subjected for series of tests to check the quality characteristics by determining some of the parameters such as kinematic viscosity, density, dynamic viscosity are tested at the temperature of 35, 40 and 45°C to check its variation in the behavior of each parameters with temperature and also parameters like flash point, calorific value are tested and compared with the properties with the diesel fuel. Running the diesel engine with one of the most desirable proportionate sample and testing the engine to determine the performance parameters with the same sample and comparing it with the properties of the diesel fuel. The performance parameters like IP, BP, FP, BSFC ƞbth, ƞith, ƞmech are calculated for both diesel and selected Pongamia oil blend sample and the respective graphs are plotted. The same engine setup is subject to determine emission characteristics like Hydrocarbon, C02, C02, 02, N0X and the respective graphs are plotted to compare with the petroleum diesel emission.

An outcome of the project will be a fuel which is to be used in C I Engines with minimumprocessing cost for fuel and least modification in C I Engine. The fuel produced can be used successfully as straight fuel in stationary and as well as locomotive C I Engine.
