This reference text discusses the potential of efficient R&D management during times of pandemic crisis and how it can provide time-bound real-life deliverables to ward-off the contamination-linked vulnerability aspects of social interaction.
It discusses important topics including mechanical ventilator with oxygen enrichment, hospital waste management facility, hospital care assistive robotic devices, implementation of smart manufacturing, special purpose machines, micro machining, 3D printing, disposal of plastic waste utilizing high temperature plasma, automatic biomass briquetting plant, and fully automatic biodiesel plant.
Discusses novel technological innovations developed especially to effectively counter pandemics such as COVID 19.
Explores how R&D modelling of technology can be interspersed with socio-economic values.
Covers how innovative technological solutions can be developed as per the situational requisites and deployed in the least possible time to make maximum impact.
Discusses industrial manufacturing and automation techniques.
The text will be useful for graduate students, and academic researchers working in diverse areas such as mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, production engineering, manufacturing science, and automobile engineering. It covers influences of Pandemics on water and sanitation services, floating capsule-based biofilm reactor (FCBBR) methodology, and innovative segregation of waste through a mechanized model.
