Research Summary :
Dr. Kapadnis research area are: 1.Nanotechnology - Primary research focus will be synthesis and applications of nanomaterials in solar thermal energy harvesting, solar desalination, nanofluids for heat transfer enhancement, phase change materials, water and waste water treatment, etc. Nanomaterials would be synthesized by using chemical methods (bottom up approach) in the laboratory. After characterization they would be incorporated in the desired application for improved parameters in accordance with above mentioned applications. The applications currently being studied in the laboratory are use of nanofluids in solar parabolic collectors, flat plate collectors, phase change materials with composite nanomaterials, etc 2.Second research area is related to heat transfer and process equipment design for improved processes, methods, efficiencies, purification in chemical process industry. This involves modification of certain part of equipment or designing of new equipment with new configuration
