Research
Prof. S. P. Venkateshan joined the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT - Madras) in November 1982 as an Assistant Professor in the Regional Sophisticated Instrumentation Center (RSIC) with a joint appointment as Assistant Professor in the Heat Transfer and Thermal Power Laboratory of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. In March 1990 he was promoted to the position of professor in Mechanical Engineering. He was the Head of the Heat Transfer and Thermal Power Laboratory from 1990-1993 and again between 2006-2010. He was the Head of the Regional Sophisticated Instrumentation Center (now SAIF) from October 1997 till September 2001. He was Vice-Chairman (2001) and Chairman (2002) of the Undergraduate Admission (JEE) Committee at IIT Madras. He was the Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Madras from 2010 - 2012.
During the above period he has done research and teaching in the areas of heat transfer and
instrumentation. He has guided several graduate students at the Master and the Doctoral levels. The areas covered by them are: Radiation Heat Transfer, Free Convection Heat Transfer and Interaction with Radiation, Hydrodynamics Studies in Fluidized Beds, Heat Transfer with Phase Change, Space heat exchangers, Studies on microwave radiation transfer in the atmosphere with applications in remote sensing, etc. He has developed and taught graduate level courses such as Measurements in Thermal Science, Mathematical Methods in Heat Transfer and Heat Transfer in Energy Systems. He has been consistently rated by the students as a good teacher.
During the summers of 1985, 1986 and 1987 he was a consultant at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory
(JPL), California Institute of Technology, California, USA in a Department of Energy funded project
on "Advanced Sensor development for the Paper and Pulp Industry with Generic Application".
Sensors for the measurement of temperature and humidity under harsh environment conditions were developed during this period. The work has been recognized by the grant of three U.S. Patents and three NASA Tech. Brief awards. In India he has been consultant to the Indian Space Research Organization and the Bharath Heavy Electricals Limited. The work for the former involved the development of analysis for the design and evaluation of a passive cooler for the Very High Resolution Radiometer (VHRR) while the latter work consists of developing a method for the transient analysis of a deaerator in a steam power plant. Recently he has also undertaken work on the study of power plant condensers for BHEL. He has also been involved in consultancy work for GSLV project of VSSC Trivandrum. Specifically he was involved in the design of thermal protection system for the L-40 strap on booster. Very recent work for ISRO has been in the area of microwave transfer through the atmosphere with application in measuring rain fall and also the use of infrared radiation for temperature profiling of the atmosphere. Recently he has provided consultancy for the DRDL Hyderabad in the design of passive and active cooling for the hypersonic demonstrator vehicle as well as design of pebble bed heaters as well as coolers for the hypersonic tunnel project.
Prior to joining the IIT, Prof. Venkateshan was Research Staff in Chemical Engineering, Yale
University New Haven, USA. During this period (May 1979 to October 1982) he worked in the
Molecular Beam Laboratory at Yale on an interesting study (funded by the United States Air force)
of energy transfer and relaxation effects in free jets of molecular gases like CO2;CO;NO;N2O etc.
Prof. John Fenn with whom he was associated during his tenure at Yale was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2002. Prof. Fenn has referred to his work in his Nobel Lecture (Electrospray wings for molecular elephants, Nobel lecture Dec. 8, 2002, by John B. Fenn, Department of Chemistry, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia 23842006, USA).
Pre-doctoral work at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) involved developmental work in the area of Lasers and Studies on the Propagation of Laser Beams through the atmosphere, a study funded by the aeronautics Research and Development Board (ARDB) of the Government of India. During this phase of work several solid state and dye lasers were built and a full fledged Laser Laboratory was set up at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of IISc.
Prof. Venkateshan has authored or co-authored more than hundred articles that include journal
publications, conference papers and Technical Reports. Prof. Venkateshan has produced three video lecture series. They are (i) "Gas and vapour power plant cycles" - a set of 34 video lectures each of 50 minutes duration (ii) "Heat Transfer" - a set of 40 video lectures of 50 minutes duration
and (iii) "Measurements in Thermal science" - a set of 40 minutes lectures of 50 minutes duration
each. These are available through the educational Technology Cell, Indian Institute of Technology
Madras. Recently, as a part of the NPTEL initiative he has produced a video lecture series on
"Mechanical Measurements" comprising 50 lectures of 55 minutes duration each for broadcast
through the EKLAVYA channel. He has also developed web based resource material on "Mechanical
Measurements" available on the NPTEL web site. Prof. Venkateshan has also developed computer
program modules on Conduction and Radiation. These modules are useful as a self study tool for
learning Conduction and Radiation heat transfer fundamentals. He has authored a text book "A
First Course in Heat Transfer" published by ANE Books, Delhi in 2004. A second text book on
"Mechanical Measurements" has been published by ANE Books, Delhi in 2007. This book has also
been issued in an international edition by CRC Books USA. Second edition of this book has been
brought out in 2015 by Ane Books and also by Wiley, NY at the international level.
???Computational methods in Engineering??? is another book which has been brought out by Ane Books
and Academic Press in 2015. Swaminathan Prasanna has co-authored the book.
A third book, essentially an enlarged 2nd edition of "A First Course in Heat Transfer" has been
brought out in 2009 as ???Heat Transfer??? by Ane Books, New Delhi. This was released under the
Golden Jubilee Book scheme of IIT madras. This year (2016) it has been revised and brought out as
a 3rd edition by Ane Books
He has been a reviewer for Indian Journal of technology, Indian Journal of Physics, Regional Journal
of Energy Heat and Mass Transfer, American Scientist, Transaction of Institutions of Chemical
engineers (Great Britain), International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, Power Technology,ASME Journal of Heat Transfer, Heat and Mass Transfer, International Journal of Thermal Science etc. He has also reviewed papers for several conferences such as the World Conference on Experimental Heat Transfer, International Heat Transfer Conference, National Heat and Mass Transfer Conference. For the just concluded International Heat Transfer Conference at Washington DC he was one of the Conference Co-chairs from India. He has also delivered lectures and seminars both in India and abroad. His bibliographical note is included in Reference India - Biographical Note about Men and Women of Achievement of Today and Tomorrow, India.
