In this project, you will simulate one of the most important problems in aerospace applications- the convergent-divergent nozzle. You will solve the quasi 1D Euler's equations in Matlab to simulate and study the conditions for an isentropic flow inside a subsonic-supersonic nozzle. This project will provide insights into how a super-sonic aircraft is able to attain such speeds with the help of a simple convergent-divergent nozzle setup.
In this project, you will solve the quasi 1D Euler's equations to simulate the conditions inside a subsonic supersonic nozzle. You will derive the governing equations for an isentropic inviscid flow through a nozzle in both conservative and non-conservative forms and non-dimensionalize them. You will then solve those equations using the MacCormack's technique. You will apply the appropriate boundary conditions and adopt a time marching procedure with adaptive time step control based on Courant number to arrive a steady-state distribution of flow properties. You will then validate the numerical solution of both forms with the analytical solution and provide a contrast between their solutions through various analyses. You will also perform a grid independence test on the solution.
The nozzle plays a vital role in the propulsion of an aircraft to speeds more than the speed of sound. It is known from the Newton's third law that, in order for a body to move forward, it needs to apply thrust in the opposite direction. In order to achieve supersonic speeds we need to eject out mass at supersonic speeds in the opposite direction. This is achieved with the help of a convergent-divergent nozzle setup. In this project you will learn how this nozzle works and accelerates the gases from subsonic to supersonic speeds. You will use the MacCormack's technique to solve the inviscid quasi 1D Navier-Stokes equations (Euler's equations) with second order accuracy in time and space. You will study the conservative and non-conservative forms of governing equations and how they are solved. You will also perform a grid-independent test and come up with an ideal mesh size.

In this project you will solve the steady and unsteady 2D heat conduction equations. You will implement explicit and implicit approaches for the unsteady case and learn the differences between them. You will also learn how to implement iterative solvers like Jacobi, Gauss-Seidel and SOR for solving implicit equations.
In this project, you will simulate a laminar flow over a backward facing step- one of the benchmark CFD problems. You will be solving the complete Navier-Stokes equation for a 2D laminar viscous flow in OpenFOAM. This project will help you learn how OpenFOAM works and how you can make an effective use of it to solve real-time CFD problems.

Engineering students who are fresh out of college often struggle to meet the expectations of their employers. More often than not, this stems from a gap between the skills they learned in school and those that are required to make them competitive in the workplace. Skill-Lync, an edtech startup based out of Chennai, aims to bridge this gap.
Chennai-headquartered online learning startup Skill-Lync has launched a Masters course in Electric Vehicle Design and Simulation. The company says the new course is the first such curriculum in India, that focuses on electric vehicles. The fee of the EV course is around Rs 275,000, with the option of a full time or part-time duration. The startup provides job leading courses for Mechanical, Electrical and Civil Engineering students in India and across the world. With colleges shut and students looking to make the most of the time that they are at home the startup has fast-tracked the development of this program and releasing it amid Covid-19.
Skill-Lync started out as a YouTube channel to share engineering tips. Today, it is an online training course that caters to mostly non-software engineering students, which make up around 60 percent of the total engineers that graduate every year.
In an attempt to ensure that there is no hiatus in student education during the ongoing lockdown, Govt of India’s All India Council of Technical Education - NEAT announced partnership with Chennai based Edtech startup Skill-Lync. The global startup Skill-Lync is first-of-its-kind engineering technical education platform that provides job leading courses for Mechanical, Electrical and Civil Engineering students in India and across the world.
