During my PhD research at National Institute of Technology Tiruchirappalli, I had been working in pool boiling heat transfer with nanofluids to improve critical heat flux as many engineering applications such as nuclear reactors, fossil fuel boilers, electronic chips, power electronics cooling, spray cooling, refrigeration and air conditioning facing problems. As a part of my work, I had synthesized nanoparticles and used XRD, Raman spectra, FT-IR, SEM, TEM, AFM in order to analyze the particles in detail. In addition, thermal conductivity, viscosity, surface tension and density are measured experimentally over a range of temperatures. It was a great experience to work with all equipments.
Currently, I am doing my research works in electronic cooling with phase change material (PCM). In this regard, a hybrid evaporative cooling of two-phase closed thermosyphon along PCM experimental facility is used to investigate the thermal performance of the electronic gadgets such as percentage of heat removal, convective HTC and thermal resistance for various circulating coolants viz. DI water, acetone, methanol and ethanol. During this work, thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and differential thermal analysis (DTA) are used to analysis PCM. Also, this work brings me an experience in using data logger for pressure and temperature measurement.
