Review on Performance and Experimental Investigation on C.I Engine Using Mexicana Oil Biodiesel

Review on Performance and Experimental Investigation on C.I Engine Using Mexicana Oil Biodiesel In recent centuries, biodiesel utilization in C.I engines has got attention due to increase population growth. Biodiesel has been demonstrated to be a virtuous alternative because of its performance corresponding to diesel and ability of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In this study, the effects of engine load and amount of biodiesel percentage on the performance and emission characteristics of C.I Engine has been examined and presented. The biodiesel blends of Argemone Mexicana were used in the present study. The results for biodiesel blend (i.e. 60% diesel, 40% Argemone) with diesel showed slight rise in brake power. There was average 0.061kg/kWh increase in specific fuel consumption for the biodiesel blends at full load. The carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbons (HC) emissions decreases for the biodiesel blend, while Nox emission was higher as compared to normal diesel.

Treatment of Sand Filter Backwash Water from Water Treatment Plant

Sponsored by:  Malegaon Municipal Corporation 2019-20.

In this study, several tests were conducted to investigate the possibility of re-use of the filter backwash water. Experiments were performed on Raw Water and sand filter backwash water from the Water Treatment plant, Malegaon. Various Tests such as turbidity, color, odor, and total suspended solids were performed to reduce the impurities. The final result shows that the turbidity achieved was close to the standard limit for drinking water as per IS 10500 (2012).

Diesel Like fuel from Plastic Waste

Plastic present a major threat to society & environment. Over14 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean annually, killing the species about 1000000 m of ocean life. Remaining tones of plastic dumped in other places of earth which causes dangerous health hazards. By converting plastic into fuel, we solved two issues, one of the large plastic waste & other of the fuel shortage this is dual benefitted and the process can provide a strong platform to build clean and green future. The waste plastic pyrolysis oil represents a good alternative fuel and we can use it as a alternative of diesel since its properties are similar to diesel.

Nanocomposite Aluminum for Aerospace Applications

Nanocomposite materials are attracting researcher community due to its excellent and thrilling outcomes. Metal nanocomposites, specifically Aluminum nanocomposites, are practiced by aerospace industry due to its high strength to weight ratio and exceptional wear resistance. Every year one project based on nanocomposite material is carried out in Mechanical Engineering Department. Aluminum nanocomposite was formulated by stir die casting with reinforcement of alumina-zirconia (Al2O3-ZrO2) nanocomposite particles. The invented nanocomposite was found excellent in tension and wear resistance. Thermal conductivity also increases but with thermal stability. The nanocomposite was proposed for applications in air-frame, aircraft bearings and manifolds.

It is a fascinating project for agriculturist, gardeners, aquarium keepers and engineers. Aquaponics is a system which cultivates fish and plants simultaneously. Fish waste is used as fertilizer for plants and plants bed filter the water to provide clean and oxygenated water to the fish. Aquaponics system recirculates the same water by filtering multiple times with the help of a submerged water pump and a bell syphon. Plants are growing in stone bed, used for water filtration.  This system is getting very rapid acceptance among concerned researchers as it covers all aspects of STEM education.This project is executed under the guidance of JMES Secretary Mr. Rashid Mukhtar by a team of faculty members and students. It is expected to be a potential solution of irrigation water crisis.



Automatic Fabric Dying Machine

Malegaon is a textile hub and its economy revolves around the textile market. However, the inertia of old technology has retarded the economic growth of the city. The cotton and textile processing has various stages, dying being one of the most critical and significant stage. Till date, dying process is not carried out at Malegaon which drastically decreases the profit margin of the textile producer. MMANTC is continuously studying and analyzing such problems related to the economic and social welfare of the city. In the Department of Mechanical Engineering, this problem is critically examined and sorted out by a group of and faculty members. Finally, an automatic fabric dying machine is designed and fabricated to demonstrate the dying process successfully. It is expected that this project will enhance the sophistication of the textile industry along creating many jobs in the field.

A Review On Development Of Flyash Based High Strength Geopolymer Concrete

The development in geopolymer concrete enables to achieve high strength concrete having the strength more than 90MPa which is aimed to reduce structural member sizes and for economical construction in the case of long-span bridges and tall buildings. Also the use of flyash in concrete reduces the greenhouse gas emission in the atmosphere by reducing cement usage.

Replacement of sand in concrete with fly ash-plastic waste composite material

We are aware that plastic waste is a major problem we are facing today, most of the plastic waste is non-degradable and techniques to utilize this waste have become an important need of today’s world. In this project Composite of Fly Ash and Plastic Waste (Polyethylene) was used as a replacement of fine aggregate in concrete. Using this composite material, we can tackle the problem of scarcity of natural sand and its effect on the environment. Hence, the experiment shows that the partial replacement of sand in concrete with flyash-plastic waste composite material is possible and gives satisfactorily result.

At present, solar vehicle is used as one of the cardinal energy saving vehicle where the application of renewable energy meets sustainable energy demand with reduction of fuel cost plus purification of atmosphere. One of the front runners in the area of renewable energy resources today is solar power. Photovoltaic cells are used to convert solar energy in to useful electrical energy. The objective of this project is to construct an efficient solar car, so that the one can travel everyday on a reliable and economical car that essentially runs on free renewable solar energy. The project illustrates how the charge generated by an array of solar panels is received and its flow in and out of a battery pack is to be controlled using a charge controller to ensure efficient storing of charge in a battery pack. The stored energy would be fed to a BLDC motor which would run the car. The mechanical construction from scratch of the chassis along with all necessary mechanical systems is illustrated. Finally the wiring of the electrical system onto the mechanical body is demonstrated.
