Company Profile:

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur carries out original research of significance and technology development at the cutting edge. It imparts training for students to make them competent, motivated engineers and scientists. The Institute not only celebrates freedom of thought, cultivates vision and encourages growth, but also inculcates human values and concern for the environment and the society.

Job Details:

About the Project: The development of an efficient thermal-fluid system relies on the underlying physics of the flow, and the potential to fully exploit it. However, lack of understanding may result in inefficient and sub-optimal designs. Design optimization based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis has become a reliable tool for heat and mass transfer applications due to rapid increase in computer power. The current project aims to study thermal-fluid systems using numerical simulations, and optimization using surrogate based techniques. Of particular interest will be design of micromixers for Lab –on – chip applications, and research related to Gas turbine cooling applications. ANSYS-CFX/ FLUENT will be used for numerical analysis. MATLAB will be used to perform optimization.

Eligibility: M. Tech in Mechanical/ Chemical Engineering + 1 year experience and specialization in Thermal and Fluids Engineering OR B. Tech/ B.E. in Mechanical Engineering with 1 + experience of working in academic or research institutes and valid GATE score. Candidate should have experience in CFD simulations (in-house codes/ Commercial Packages).

Salary Range: Rs:18,000-1800-36000.
