Announcement Regarding IDS2020: Due to global concerns regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) and how it may impact travel and participants’ health and well-being, the IDS 2020 organizers, in consultation with Professor Arun Mujumdar, have made the difficult decision to postpone IDS 2020 to the year 2021.  The new dates for IDS 2021 will be posted on the website (https://wp.wpi.edu/ids2020/) as soon as they get confirmed.

Quote of The Week:

“Never limit yourself because of others’ limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination.”

– Mae Jemison

Professor Arun S. Mujumdar established the Transport Processes Research (TPR) Group about 15 years ago while he was faculty at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Initially, the group consisted of his research students, postdoctoral fellows at NUS as well as his former students and research associates at McGill University. Also included were his mentees from several universities in China, India, Canada, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil, etc. Over the past decade, the group membership has grown to include collaborators from some twenty countries who have a research interest in transport phenomena and material science as well as mathematical modeling of diverse engineering systems. Professor Mujumdar is the principal mentor of this group who is happy to provide guidance to research students as well as young faculty.

We hope this site will continue to serve the needs of our regular and new visitors. The objective of this effort is to provide free access to numerous resources not limited to drying science and technology. As in the past, we will continue to cover many areas of basic and applied research and development in transport phenomena, material science, chemical and food engineering, energetics, etc. Another mission is to develop a network and provide opportunities for global collaboration and cooperation to members of the TPR group as well as visitors to this site. As one can see from the publication data and drying literature resources, the TPR group has been truly global and highly productive. We plan to update the site regularly so that it will be useful to the visitors for updates in areas of their interest. This site is still a work in progress. We welcome feedback from visitors.

Please send your feedback/suggestions to Dr. Shivanand S. Shirkole of NIT, Rourkela, India at shivanandshirkole@gmail.com.
