FDP ON HEAT TRANSFER REPORT

The faculty development programme on heat transfer was conducted by Department of Mechanical Engineering from 5th June 2017 to 9th June 2017. The eminent personalities from IIT, NIT’s as well as from industries was invited for this programme. To get practical exposure industrial visit also organized. The faculties from various institutes participated in this programme. The concept of mechanism of heat transfer such as conduction, convection and radiation as well as basic concepts of mass transfer were elaborated during the sessions. There was healthy interaction between the speakers and participants and both had appreciated the FDP.

  The inauguration of the programme was done by Dr. Ravi M. R. Professor, IIT New Delhi in presence of Dr. Dambhare S. G. H.O.D, Mechanical Department shift I, Dr. Ubale  A. B. H.O.D, Mechanical Department shift II, Dr. Prabhune C.L. convener of the programme  had given the introduction detailed programme schedule. Dr. Dambhare  S. G. discussed about the institute and purpose of conducting this FDP in his speech. Dr. Ravi , chief guest of the programme  had the general scenario about the education in the private institute and appreciated that college has taken proper steps to improve the teaching learning process by organizing such programmes.

The first session of the programme started with the introduction of heat transfer Unit-I by Dr. Ravi M.R. He has introduced how the thermodynamics and heat transfer subjects are correlated with each other in a beautiful manner. He has touched most of the points from unit I i.e. modes of heat transfer, temperature boundary conditions, heat flux, thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, thermal contact resistance etc. In the second half he had given the idea about one dimensional steady state heat conduction without heat generation in a plane wall, composite wall, cylinder, sphere and critical radius of insulation. In the second session he discussed about the radiation the fundamental concepts, spectral and total emissive power, real and gray surfaces, radiation laws, radiation shape factor, radiation shield and it’s application.

On second day Dr. Chandramohan V.P. from NIT Warangal took first session on one dimensional steady state heat conduction with heat generation in plane wall, composite wall, cylinder, sphere with different boundary conditions. He also highlighted about heat transfer through extended surfaces. In the afternoon session he discussed about thermal insulation, economics and cost consideration, transient heat conduction.

On third day Dr. Sachin Parmane from Crompton Greaves, Mumbai took the morning session on convection which includes mechanism of natural convection and forced convection, heat transfer coefficient, dimensionless number and their physical significance. In the afternoon session he had elaborated what is pool boiling and forced boiling phenomenon, filmwise condensation and dropwise condensation with very good power point presentation. He also discussed about heat exchanger- LMTD and NTU methods for analysis of heat exchanger.

On the fourth day industrial visit was organized at Tranter India pvt Ltd, Tal-Shirur, Dist- Pune. Tranter brings compact heat transfer solutions to customers worldwide, backed by local service coverage. Advanced plate heat exchangers spanning a wide product range offer proven performance in broad applications involving liquids, gases, steam and two-phase flows. They newly developed welded Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger is improving operations in many duties formerly handled by shell & tube and welded block-type exchangers. The plate type heat exchangers are used for dairy and pharmaceutical industries.

 On the fifth day of FDP Dr. N. K. Sane Professor, Walchand College of Engineering, Sangli conducted session on importance of heat transfer in day today life. He also explains relation between Vedas and heat transfer. In the valedictory function attendance certificate was distributed to the all participants.

Thus, Faculty development programme was successfully conducted and it has achieved its objectives.

  1. Considering the vision, mission of the institute and requirements of students, institute has designed a faculty responsive FDP which leads to positive transformation in teaching learning process.
  2. To pursue academic excellence during interactive session.
  3. To discuss how to teach various topics in heat transfer included in SPPU syllabus by giving better idea.
  4. To focus on a important points while conducting lecture in the class  for effective and interactive session.
