PhD Candidate, Deb Banerjee Receives Best Paper Award at 2020 ASME IMECE Conference
Deb Banerjee, PhD Candidate and student of Professor Ahmet Selamet, received the Fluid Measurement & Instrumentation Technical Committee (FMITC) best paper award for his paper titled “Particle Image Velocimetry as Applied to Inlet Flow Field of a Turbocharger Compressor at Varying Rotational Speeds with Emphasis on Surge” at the 2020 ASME IMECE Conference
The work uses Particle Image Velocimetry (a laser diagnostic technique) to characterize surge instabilities in a turbocharger compressor at various rotational speeds. This paper describes the detailed characterization of these instabilities leading to improvements in our fundamental understanding of the involved physical processes.
“I want to thank my co-authors – Dr. Ricky Dehner and Professor Ahmet Selamet for their contributions in this collective effort along with Mr. Miazgowicz from Ford Motor Company for funding this work. We are deeply honored in receiving this recognition, and look forward to continuing the research at CAR, and hopefully make further scientific contributions.”
