The following was the schedule for the Day III orientation (18th Sep. 2020) of new entrants in ECE and ME department, which was organized through the MS team for the new entrants.
Session 1 – (10:00am-10:30am): Introduction of Centre of Excellence of Altair
Session 2 – (10:30am-11:00am): Webinar session on Computation Fluid Dynamics
Session 3 – (11:00am-11:45am): Introduction of Design Validation
Session 4 – (11:45am-12:15pm): Application of Feko Tool
The session was attended by ECE HoD, Dr. Shruti Vashist, ME HoD, Dr. Sujata Nayak, and faculty members of both the departments.
Mr. Joginder Singh, Associate Head – ME Department, gave a brief description of the CoE of Altair and NPTEL. He motivated the students to take the advantage of NPTEL and to think about their domain expertise. He told the students about the domain of ECE like VLSI Design, Communication and Signal Processing, Power Systems and Power Electronics, Control and Instrumentation, and Photonics. Similarly, he discussed the domain of ME like Product Design, Manufacturing Technology, Computational Thermo Fluids, and Energy System.
Mr. JP Sharma, Assistant Professor, ME Department, gave a brief description of Computation Fluid Dynamics i.e. Altair’s AcuSolve. It provides the tools to avoid the CFD pre-processing bottleneck and focus on exploring CFD simulation results. AcuSolve’s powerful solver technology provides the most robust solution in the CFD marketplace. AcuSolve’s proprietary numerical methods yield stable simulations and accurate results regardless of the quality and topology of the mesh elements.
Mr. Sharad Mahour, Application Engineer, DesignTech, gave a brief description of Altair’s software products representing a comprehensive, open-architecture solution for simulation, data intelligence, and cloud computing. He discussed the Altair Inspire and Inspire Cast. Altair Inspire accelerates the creation, optimization, and study of innovative, structurally efficient parts and assemblies through collaboration. Inspire enables both simulation analysts and designers to perform what-if studies faster, easier, and above all earlier, encouraging collaboration and reducing product time to market.
Yogita Khanna, Associate Head – ECE Department, gave a brief description of the Altair tools used by the Electronics and communication Department for designing and simulation of various products. In the session, the example of a mobile phone was taken to explain the Feko tool used for electromagnetic structure designing and evaluating the performance of components such as Gain, bandwidth, and Specific Absorption Rate. The projects being handled by the faculty and students along with Altair were showcased so as the students have a glimpse of the work being done by the Department.
The session was well appreciated by the students in the application world and they participated keenly during the discussions.
