Assistant Professor


Research Interests: Clean Coal Technology, Process Modeling and Simulation, Reaction Engineering and Energy Efficient Materials


Mr. Shivakumar R, joined the BMSCE in the year 2009, since then he is teaching and has developed interest in different research areas. His post-graduation project work at Materials Technology Division, CPRI, Bangalore, was focused on carbon sequestration in Indian power plants with utilization of oxy-fuel combustion instead of air combustion technology. Currently he is pursuing his P.hD program in B.M.S. College of Engineering as research center under V.T.U in the area of alternate fuels and blended coal kinetics. He has published research papers in international and national journals. He has conducted software training programs on UNISIM process simulation in B.M.S college of Engineering and other institutes. His overall citations since 2013 is increased to 41 with h-index 3 and i10-index 2.
