"Theoretical investigation on non-local transport of particles in sediment-laden turbulent flows using fractional diffusion equations"

Sediment-laden flow plays an important role in the evolution of river beds, estuaries and even the coastlines. Therefore, this is a long-standing topic of interest to Hydraulic engineers, Coastal engineers, Geologists, Hydrologists, Mathematicians. In an open-channel turbulent flow, vertical transport of sediment particles is described by the traditional advection diffusion equation (ADE). The ADE is developed using the Fick’s first law for sediment dispersive flux. In Fick’s first law, particles are assuming to have a random Brownian motion and upward movement of particles during a given small time interval are constrained to a small distance to neighboring positions which follow a Gaussian probability density function (PDF) with finite variance. On other words, the traditional ADE considered local transport of particles. But during turbulent bursts, (ejection and multi-ejection) particle moves from bed level to the surface. Essentially, the process of bursting in the near-bed flow provokes a non-local transport of particle which is a Lévy motion instead of Brownian motion. A variety of field and theoretical studies suggests super-diffusive non-locality in transport of traces on Earth surface. These facts signify that use of the space-fractional derivative instead of integer order derivative in ADE is more reasonable to count the effect of non-local transport in such open channel turbulent flow to find distribution of suspended particles. Therefore, is project gives a new window how further theoretical development can be done in turbulent flows, to study different characterizes of turbulence more accurately using fractional differential equations.

"Remote Communication and Control of solar lantern"

This research oriented project is completely focusing up on the development of an electronic hardware platform which will be responsible for data accusation from a solar operated portable lighting system. After the accusation of data related to solar energy generation, consumption and validity of service period of portable lighting system, data will be store in a micro SD memory chip and simultaneously transmitted to a central internet server through cloud server technology. By using cloud monitoring platform one can observe the energy related data of solar lantern as well as could control the subscriber energy demand. Maintenance facility as well as linkage of better supply chain management could also be established.
