BITS-Pilani Chemical Engineering Jobs – Applications Invited

BITS-Pilani Chemical Applications are invited from eligible candidates to work as a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in a DST (Department of Science & Technology) sponsored project (under the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM)) at Mechanical Engineering Department, BITS-Pilani, (Pilani campus), Rajasthan.

Project Title: Development and Usage of a 3D, Parallel, Multiphysics Solver for
Simulating Electrically Assisted Melt and Solution Spinning with High-velocity Gas Jets Using the Rheological Constitutive Approach for Liquid Jet Dynamics

Project Duration: 2 years

Principal Investigator(PI)
Dr. Shyam Sunder Yadav (PI), Mechanical Engineering,
Dr. Arkaprovo Ghosal (Co-PI), Chemical Engineering

Project Description

We plan to develop, test, and use a three-dimensional, parallel code capable of simulating the electrospinning and melt spinning processes in the presence of externally applied electric and concentric gas-jet flow fields. We use an Eulerian approach based on the Volume-of-fluid method for tracking the generation of the Taylor cones in the viscoelastic fluid jet near the die and the Lagrangian approach for tracking the movement and interaction of multiple solidified filaments/fibers formed from the Taylor cones.

Objectives of the project are as follows:

1) To develop, test, and use a 3D, parallel solver for the simulation of high-speed gas-jet-assisted melt-spinning, electrospinning, and electrospraying processes.

2) To conduct a detailed parametric study for investigating the effect of the most sensitive governing parameters that dictate the behaviour of the fibers/filaments produced during the electrospinning/melt spinning process.

3) To address the droplet disintegration and charge distribution
the mechanism in electrospraying processes.

4) To establish the structure-process-property relations for melt-spinning, electrospinning, and electrospraying processes.

Fellowship Rs. 31,000/- per month for 2 years.

Essential Post Graduate Degree in Chemical Engineering,

Qualifications Degree in Professional Course selected through a process described
through any one of the following:

a. Scholars who are selected through National Eligibility Test USIRUGC NET including lectureship (Assistant Professorship) and GATE.

b. The selection process through National examinations conducted by Central Government Departments and their Agencies and Institutions such as DST, DBT, DOS, DRDO, MHRD, ICAR, ICMR, IIT, IISc, IISER, etc.

Desirable Qualification:

  • Good knowledge of programming in FORTRAN / C / C++ in a Linux environment. Basic Knowledge of CFD of Two-phase flows is expected. Experience with Volume of Fluid Method, Front Tracking Method, Viscoelastic flows will be an advantage.
