 MEG 901 – Selected Topics in Computational Thermofluids (as needed by Ph.D students)

Current Project/Research Areas
1. Design of Renewable Energy Conversion Systems
Application of fundamentals of thermo-chemical and fluid flow phenomena, especially electro-kinetics and slip-flow irreversibilities within the network of micro-channels, to the design and development of renewable energy systems like solar, wind and biomass, is contemplated in this research. For example, subsystems of a CSP-powered bio-digester assembly, including the concentrating solar power (CSP) micro-collector, homogenizer, bio-digester, etc, are connected by the transport of a microfluidic heat transfer media. Selected publications in this area of research include:

2. Modelling of Leak Propagation and Detection in Pipes
Effect of roughness-induced boundary layers and material integrity phenomenon within different flow regimes in pipes is modelled, using novel numerical tools and schemes including Non-Inverted Skew Upwind Scheme (NISUS), towards the study of leak propagation and detection. Selected publications in this area of research include:

3. Design of Zero Energy/Emission Buildings
Demand side monitoring of energy consumption in residential and commercial building facilities is focussed in this study. Facility characterization for acceptable thermal comfort and indoor air quality enables the development of tools for demand forecasting and renewable system integration. Selected publications in this area of research include:
