Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Liquid metal loops are used for heat removal and for the study of certain magneto-fluidic phenomenon like MHD (Magneto-Hydro Dynamic) effects. These loops operate at high temperatures and carry fluids that are invariably toxic in nature. Ensuring the purity of fluid in a closed loop application needs non-intrusive pumps electromagnetic pumps. We have designed and analyzed a prototype ...

2D Simulations and Electro-Thermal Analysis of Microheater Designs using COMSOL for Gas Sensor Applications

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is one of the important Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) technique widely used for characterisation of materials as well as detection and characterisation of flaws present in the material used in various industries. There are many different important materials like metals, metallic alloys, rubber, composites etc used in aerospace industries is being inspected using UT as ...

Thermal Analysis of Joule Heated Ceramic Melter

P. Goyal, V. Verma, R.K. Singh, and K.K. Vaze
Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

High level radioactive waste (HLW) generated by nuclear fuel cycle is immobilized using glass melters. In Glass melters such as Joule Heated Ceramic Melter (JHCM) electrodes immersed in the glass generates heat by the joule heating due to electric current passing between electrodes through glass. For melter performance it is required to evlaute temperature distribution in the melter. Thermal ...

Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur, Maharashtra, India

Testing and verification is very important to increase reliability of a system. In water analysis its purity is verified using different test methods. Biosensors are very useful to detect the microorganisms present in water. This paper presents a method to detect E.coli bacteria in water depending upon the capacitance modulation in the presence and absence of E.coli cell, which is simulated in ...

Loading Conditions in the Feed Sparger of a Steam Drum Influenced by Thermal Shock

P. Goyal, A. Dutta, R.K. Singh, and K.K. Vaze
Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Steam drum in a nuclear power plant is one of the important components of Primary Heat Transport (PHT) system where steam is separated from the steam water mixture. Steam water mixture emanating from the reactor core is separated in a steam drum. Separated steam goes to the turbine whereas separated water after mixing with incoming feed water returns to the reactor. The entire feed water flow is ...

Simulation of Methane Adsorption in ANG Storage System

Recently adsorptive storage has been identified as the most promising low-pressure (3.5 - 4.0 MPa) alternative for storing natural gas for vehicular use. However in order to successfully implement this technology, the filling and discharge characteristics of the adsorbent bed must be well understood. Significant temperature changes that occur during adsorption and desorption retard the system ...
