Development of Novel Heat Transfer Gauges Based on Large Carbon Clusters to Measure Total as well as Radiative Heat Flux for Planetary Entry Configurations in Hypersonic Shock Tunnels
The quest of travelling beyond earth, preludes with ground based experimental studies, detailed analysis and accurate calculations in the aspects of having a safer design of flying vehicles. As the vehicles plunge into the ... 
Differential Evolution Based Interceptor Guidance Law
(20130529)Kinematics based guidance laws like the proportional navigation (PN) and many other linear optimal guidance laws perform well in nearcollision course conditions. These have been studied thoroughly in the literature from ... 
Differential Games Guidance Laws for Aerospace Applications
(20180726)This thesis addresses several aerospace guidance and decision making problems using both no cooperative and cooperative game theoretical solution concepts in the differential games framework. In the first part of the thesis, ... 
Discrete Velocity Boltzmann Schemes for Inviscid Compressible Flows
It is known that highspeed flows are compressible. In large parts of the flow domains, the inviscid approximation is valid and this leads to Euler equations of gas dynamics. These inviscid compressible flows are modelled ... 
Distributed Computation With Communication Delays: Design And Analysis Of Load Distribution Strategies
(Indian Institute of Science, 20051109)Load distribution problems in distributed computing networks have attracted much attention in the literature. A major objective in these studies is to distribute the processing load so as to minimize the time of processing ... 
Dynamic Response Of A Satellite With Flexible Appendages And Its Passive Control
(20101125)Most present day spacecrafts have large interconnected solar panels. The dynamic behavior of the spacecraft in orbit can be modeled as a free rigid mass with flexible elements attached to it. The natural frequencies of ... 
Dynamics And Stability Of A Launch Vehicle
(20110708)Stability is an important criterion in the design and performance of launch vehicles. Present day launch vehicles have become more and more flexible due to the constraints of weight reduction, necessarily imposed for ... 
Dynamics of Actuated and Interacting Swirl Premixed Flames in Model Gas Turbine Combustors
Lean premixed combustion is preferred in gas turbines because of the reduced (NOx) emissions. However, the combustors operating in lean premixed regime could suffer from problems like flame flashback, flame blowoff and ... 
Dynamics Of Early Stages Of Transition In A Laminar Separation Bubble
(20100412)This is an experimental and theoretical study of a laminar separation bubble and the associated transition dynamics in its early stages. The separation of a laminar boundary layer from a solid surface is prevalent in very ... 
Dynamics Of Water Drops Impacting Onto The Junction Of DualTextured Substrates Comprising Hydrophobic And Hydrophilic Portions
(20141124)The research topic of liquid drop interaction with solid surfaces is being actively pursued to gain indepth understanding of several practical cases such as the impingement of fuel spray droplets on surfaces like combustion ... 
Edge Effect of SemiInfinite Rectangular Posts on Impacting Drops
(20180530)The inhibiting effect of a sharp edge on liquid spreading is well observed during drop interaction with textured surfaces. On groovetextured solid surfaces comprising unidirectional parallel grooves, the edge effect of ... 
Effect of a Mesh on Boundary Layer Transition Induced by Freestream Turbulence and an Isolated Roughness Element
(20180623)A high level of freestream turbulence and surface roughness are known to cause breakdown of an otherwise stable laminar flow. In transition induced by freestream turbulence, streaks are formed due to the liftup effect ...
