Activities

An Interactive session by Dr. Narayanan Komerath, Professor, Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, United States was held at 10.00 am on Tuesday, December 20, 2016. He enlightened the gathering of Directors, Principal, Heads of Departments, faculty, and other staff members about need for developing and implementing various technologies to meet the energy requirements of our nation. The energy needs can only be met by developing a host of technologies across bio-gas, natural fuel, solar photo-voltaic cells, etc. Over 300 million people in our country still lack access to basic power; so a big challenge also lies in educating our people in the villages and helping them achieve their basic necessities.

An Interactive session by Dr. Narayanan Komerath,

Mr. Divakaran PK, Manager Operation at CEFIRE Global also spoke during the occasion about the various offerings from his organization and on how these could be leveraged to help skill development among the students.

 

Later, Dr. Narayana Komerath fielded questions from the gathering and answered them which ranged from engineering education to product engineering, and patents.

It was followed with the message of the day by Executive Director Er. G. Mohanachandran. Afterwards the resourse persons were introduced and the technical talk was declared open by VICT, Author Trustee and EC member Er. K. G. Sukumaran.

The seminar was opened by Mr. Nidhin Kadavil and he introduced the topic “Cryogenic Training Solutions & Basics of Cryogenic Liquid Pumping”. Mr. Patrick N Davis gave an overview about the company, Complete Cryogenic Services, Inc. and mentioned their responsibilities and operations in the global scenario of Cryogenic requirements. Then the two resource persons together delivered a seminar on the basics of Cryogenic Liquid Pumping. They discussed in detail about the basics of pumping, Cryogenic liquid gases, Commercial Cryogenic Pumping, various applications etc. citing many real-life examples. They also discussed in length about the Engineering Challenges associated with Cryogenic Pumping, with the help of different designs of Cryogenic Pumps. Mechanical, Hydraulic, Electric, Material Science & Instrumentation design considerations were also briefly explained.

The session then continued with relevance of Cryogenic Liquid Pumping in a fastest growing industry like LNG Industry and what are the career profiles and outlook of an Engineer, associated with Cryogenics, in those industries. Names of Cryogenic Pump Makers, LNG Engineering Consultants, LNG Owners, LNG Carriers, Petrochemical Owners etc. were cited on this context.

During the closing remark, Mr. Nidhin Kadavil explained about the importance of an Advanced Training in Cryogenic Pump & LNG Plant Design and the availability of such a course.

Afterwards the seminar, the guests were honored by giving mementos and a thanking note by Executive Director Er. G. Mohanachandran and Er. K. G. Sukumaran.

In the end, Mr. Sreekanth Unni (S8 ME B) delivered the vote of thanks to all the invited guests and participants for gracing the occasion by their solemn presence.

It was then followed by an Industry-Institute interactive session, among the resource persons,Faculty and students of various departments.
