Conference proceedings/papers : 6 Seminars /Lectures/ Or ations delivered : 30 Post graduate Thesis supervision during 2012-13: 01 Highlights of research work done and its impart (maximum two singlespaced pages with figures/diagrams etc.): My current area of interest is in the fled of Optimization Techniques, Statistical Techniques, Numerical Method and Mathematical Pedagogy. Although my doctoral thesis was in the area of Differential Geometry, I have not been able to work further in this area due to the nature of my current teaching assignments. However, this has provided me opportunity to developed newer interests. I plan to continue to focus these areas and get deeply involved. I also have significant experiences in using mathematical software and programming languages which are very important especially in these areas of mathematics. I wish to explore the water resources management programmes where optimization and statistical techniques such as stochastic optimization, and distribution free techniques etc. can play a significance role. I believe not much has been done in India in this area and there is a lot of scope, especially when the county is facing a lot of challenges. Mathematical software have potential to facilitate an active approach to learning, to allow students to become involved in discovery and to consolidate their own knowledge, thus developing conceptual and geometrical understanding and a deeper approach to learning. Emergence of such mathematical tools and its ability to deal with most of the undergraduate mathematics cannot be ignored by mathematics educators. While use of computer technologies in many countries in teaching and learning mathematics have made a significant impact at all levels, use of such tools in mathematics teaching at all levels is in its infancy in India. So much so, that many mathematics teachers are not even aware of existence of such tools. My aim is to create awareness about innovative use of Mathematical Software among mathematics teachers across the country. I also wish to create a pool of teachers who can create innovative teaching modules, constantly regular update mathematics teachers knowledge and work as catalyst. We can also create an institution which can take care teachers training programme at all level and use of (Information and communication Technology) ICT will be in its forefront. I have been involved with the Mathematics Training and Talent Search (MTTS) programme for last several years in the various capacities. I believe that this programme has benefited a lot of students including me and has made a significant impact on mathematical science in India.

Numerical Studies of Thermal Stratification in Liquid Metal fast Breeder Reactor
Energy is one of the most important needs for growth and prosperity of the modern world. The various sources of energy can be nonrenewable (coal, natural gases and petroleum) and renewable sources of energy (biomass, solar, wind etc). In the recent years, nuclear energy has emerged as a vital source of energy especially in developing countries like India. Various designs of nuclear reactors (Boiling water reactors (BWR), Pressurized water reactors (PWR), Pressurized heavy water reactors (PHWR), Liquid Metal Fast breeder reactors (LMFBR) etc. are being developed and implemented for the power generation across the world. Researchers have developed their interest in design of LMFBR’s. Since, they have capability of high power generation with less amount of fuel as compared to other nuclear reactors. Thermal stratification is one of the most important problems in Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR). The understanding of thermal stratification is very much essential for design of LMFBR. During, SCRAM condition the cold fluid enters into the hot pool. Due to high density of the cold fluid, it will be collected in the lower part of the reactor vessel. A large part of the coolant in the upper part of reactor vessel remains hot. This phenomenon creates a thermal stratified condition and produces an axial temperature gradient in the reactor pool. Thus, the study of the degree of thermal stratification and its persistence are essential for the thermal design of LMFBR. Several studies [1-2] (both experimental and numerical) have been carried out to study the thermal stratification in fast breeder reactors. At present CFD studies have been carried out to investigate the parametric sensitivity of standard k-e model for thermal stratification. Fig.1 shows the effect of Cµ (0.05,0.07 and 0.09) on rising speed of the stratification interface. It was interesting to note that below intermediate heat exchanger’s (IHX)(z* < 0.4), the predicted interface height agreed well with the experimental data. But, it under predicts in the upper part of the reactor vessel (Fig. 1). It may be concluded that the parametric sensitivity of k-e model fails to predict thermal stratification and it’s characteristics in the upper part of the reactor vessel. Further, experimental studies have been carried out in the lab scale to investigate the effects of Richardson numbers (Ri’s) on thermal stratification and it’s characteristics. Fig. 2 shows the experimental setup. It has been observed that, nondimensional interface height (z*) is inversely proportional to Ri. It means that at high Ri, interface velocity decreases. This may be due to increase in the buoyancy forces near the stratification interface. Further,CFD studies have been carried out to investigate the turbulence models on thermal stratification. CFD validations have been carried out at Ri = 5.85. Fig. 4 shows the effect of turbulence models on thermal stratification. Since, it has been found from the parametric study of k-e model [3] is not a robust model for the predictions of thermal stratification. So in the present study standard k-? model and SST k-? model have been considered for the computation. It was interesting to note that, the prediction of stratification interface from standard k-? model agreed well with the experimental data. So, it may be concluded that the standard k-? model is giving better performance as compared to SST k-? model for thermal stratification studies.
