The first session of Day1 began with the Keynote Address by Dr. S A Khan. He explained about the flow through nozzle and computational analysis of fluid flow in his address on recent advances in Aerospace Engineering. He discussed in detail about the sudden expansion of flow, both in subsonic and supersonic regimes. He also mentioned that the use of a jet and a shroud configuration in the form of a supersonic parallel diffuser is an excellent application of sudden expansion problems, and is a good research topic for young researchers. He pointed out the fact that there is wide gap between research and quality research, and requested young researchers to pursue quality research.
This session was followed by an invited talk by Dr. Ashok G Matani, Professor, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Government Engineering College, Amaravati, The Speaker delineated IOT and sensors applications in renewable energy systems optimization. He called attention to the fact that automation is creating plenty of opportunities, and people needs to upgrade to the skills. He highlighted the need for IOT and their application, and opportunities for young researchers to carry out the research on IOT for renewable energy systems. The inaugural Session, followed by the Keynote Address and invited talk have opened up opportunities for the creation of an atmosphere for research and development in the College. It has brought to focus, the need for quality research by the faculty members and has also highlighted the opportunities for faculty members and students to carry out quality research. The session also laid emphasis on the need for keeping oneself updated on latest trends of Electric Vehicles, Industry 4.0, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and their applications to Mechanical Engineering, for real time Engineering and multidisciplinary innovations, Especially, the talk by Dr. Ashok G Matani on IOT and sensors applications in renewable energy systems optimization has opened up new avenues for students and faculty members of the department to carry out research in the domain of Industrial Internet of Things and the applications of sensors for energy management and evolution of the newer modes of monitoring the energy requirements of the systems.
