Special Sessions

Special Sessions

Scope: The aim of this special session is to gives an insight on bridging the gap between academia-industry interaction for a better way to look the industry scenario. It includes, the discussion on
  • Need of industry-academia collaboration
  • Barriers of industry-academia interaction (from Government, Academia and Industry)
  • Towards the integration of Industry and Academia
  • Increasing Complexity
  • Growing skill gap, Stiff competition
  • High expectations of the industry
  • Outdated Syllabus
  • Migration of students
  • Problems with the personnel (Lack of motivation, qualifications, desired qualities and compassion to deal with the problem)
  • Lack the insight to understand the benefits of such a collaboration
  • Problems with the system (Delay in funding, Undue control and external influence)
  • Traditional methods of learning and teaching
  • Lack of infrastructural support, proper laboratories, R&D facilities and many more..
  • Mr. Gautam Dutta, Siemens India, Chair
  • Dr. Ravinder Kumar, Amity University
  • Dr. Ambrish Maurya, Amity University
Scope: This session presents energy sources that are continually replenished by nature—the sun, the wind, water, the Earth’s heat, and plants. Renewable energy technologies turn these fuels into usable forms of energy—most often electricity, but also heat, chemicals, or mechanical power. It covers following topics (but not limited to):
  • Hydropower
  • Bioenergy
  • Geothermal Energy
  • Solar Energy
  • Wind Energy
  • Ocean Energy
  • Hydrogen
  • Waste to Energy
  • Prof. K. Muralidhar, IIT Kanpur, Chair
  • Prof. Bengt Sunden, Lund University Sweden
  • Prof. Quiwang Wang, Xi’an Jiaotong University, China
  • Prof. Basant Singh Sikarwar, Amity University
  • Prof. R K Tyagi, Amity University
  • Dr. Preeti Joshi, Amity University
Scope: The combination of digital processes has a disruptive impact on mechanical engineering design. Not only do engineers need to redesign processes and operations to accommodate these new advances, Industry 4.0 impacts how they design products for increasingly smart manufacturing facilities. This session is dedicated to discuss about the following topics of I4.0:
  • Autonomous Robots
  • Engineering Simulation
  • Horizontal and Vertical System Integration
  • The Industrial Internet of Things
  • Cybersecurity
  • The Cloud
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Augmented Reality
  • Big Data and Analytics
  • Prof. Satyendra Kumar Gupta, University of Southern California, LA, USA
  • Prof. Basant Singh Sikarwar, Amity University
  • Prof. R K Tyagi, Amity University
  • Dr. Rakesh Kumar Phanden, Amity University
Scope: Almost every processing technology must deal with Multi-Phase Flow (MPF), from activating pumps and turbines to electro photographic processes. The capability to predict the fluid flow behavior of these processes is central to the efficiency and effectiveness of those processes. For instance, the effective flow of toner is a major factor in the quality and speed of electro-photographic printers. MPF is widespread aspect of our environment such as rain, fog, snow, avalanches, sediment transport, mud slides, debris flows and many other natural phenomena. Also, the medical and biological flows embrace MPF. This session includes analytical, numerical and experimental articles of lasting interest in MPF. The scope of the session covers all aspects of mass, momentum and energy exchange phenomena among different phases such as occur in disperse flows, gas–liquid and liquid–liquid flows, flows in porous media, boiling, condensation, granular flows and others.

This session discusses the followings topics (but not limited to):
  • Boiling and Condensation
  • Case Studies for Composite Fluid
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Concurrent Multiscale Modeling
  • Discrete Element Method
  • Disperse Flow and Phase Model
  • Droplet Simulation
  • Empirical Correlations
  • Energy Systems 
  • Fluid Surface Interaction (FSI) 
  • Fluidized Bed Animation
  • Free Surface Flow
  • Homogeneous & Inhomogeneous Multiphase Flow
  • Heat Pipes
  • Hydrodynamics and Kinetic Theory of Dense Gases
  • Laminar Versus Turbulent in Multiphase flow
  • Micro/Meso/Macro‐Micro/Meso‐Micro Approach in Multiphase Flow
  • Modeling of Multiphase Flow: Fluid and Thermal
  • Multiphase Coupling, Multiscale Analysis, Models and Algorithms
  • Nanoparticle-Laden Flows, Poly-Dispersed Flow and Population Balance Equation
  • Porous Bed Model
  • Temporal and Spatial Discretization Methods
  • Two-phase flow Theory: Void Fraction Pressure Drops and Volume Averaging Formulation
  • Volume of Fluid (VOF) Model and Volume of Fraction
  • Prof. K. Muralidhar, IIT Kanpur
  • Prof. Bengt Sunden, Lund University Sweden
  • Prof. Quiwang Wang, Xi’an Jiaotong University, China
