Prospective students

Looking for motivated (undergrads and postgrads) students interested to work in the field of computational sciences. My work requires profiency in coding.

Ph.D. Thesis

Read the guidelines for B.Tech and M.Tech students, this applies to you also. Some of the possible Ph.D. topics that I wish to guide on are as follows:

  • Development of Direct Simulation Monte Carlo code for unstructured meshes

  • Ab-initio based inelastic collision cross-section model and rotational-translational relaxation

  • Non-equilibrium Radiative Heat Transfer in high temperature gas flows

  • High temperature gas dynamics using discontinuous Galerkin method

M.Tech Projects

My M. Tech topics require good proficiency in C++/fortran and mathematics. No issues if you are not familiar with the topics but it is expected good amount of work on the student's part with utmost sincerity. Please send you CFD Grades and Assignments when you contact me.

Mainly my research has three directions: - Conventional Gas Dynamics: Please search hypersonic solvers on google and go through a few (review) papers on this. - Second order Gas dynamics equations: Search generalized hydrodynamics (papers by Byung Chan Eu) or NCCR (papers by Rho Shin Myong). This is more theoretical work. Instead of Navier-Stokes-Fourier relations, one has to work with second-order approximations of stress and heat flux. - Direct Simulation Monte Carlo: Search DSMC and re-entry vehicles. DSMC is a particle method. - Non-equilibrium Air Radiation Modelling: Search NEQAIR

One important thing, if you are going to write GATE or planning to appear for UPSC, please look for other guides. In addition to this, you will have to develop soft skills (LaTeX and git) for MTP-1 and also self-study a couple of subjects. Some topics

  • GPU accelerated quasi-classical trajectory molecular dynamics (QCT-MD) in-house code

  • Three-temperature modelling of hypersonic flows with vibrational and chemical non-equilibrium

  • Implementation of various flux schemes in opensource framework

  • Computation of flows involving shock-boundary layer interactions

B. Tech Projects

If you want to work with me, you have to go through the following steps:

  • If you are not currently using/well versed with Linux, install Ubuntu 22.04 LTS side-by-side your OS (if not standalone) and learn basic terminal commands. No virtual box installation please.

  • Install foam-extend-4.1 and complete ALL STEPS in the link.

If you cannot (or do not want to) complete the above two steps, or are not motivated to work, please don't contact me. In addition to this, you will have to develop soft skills (LaTeX and git) for BTP398 and also self-study a couple of subjects. Generally, your BTP will have scope for publication (subject to your dedication).
