It is my privilege to acknowledge the kindness and help that our respected and learned teachers showed towards us. It is because of their inspiration, constructive criticism and valuable suggestions that I have completed my major project in Mechanical Engineering. Their precious guidance and unrelenting support kept me on track through my project work. I want to thank all the project members of this project for their warm support and co-operation in successful planning of design and fabrication of project work.
I express my sincere gratitude to Dr. J.S Oberoi (Project Coordinator) for spending his precious time gathering knowledge about various aspects of Heat Treatment and its applications for design and fabrication of project work. The successful completion of project would not have been possible without his precious advice and suggestions.
A special thank awaits Dr. APS Sethi (Head, Mechanical Engineering Department) and Dr. J.S Oberoi (Project Coordinator and Supervisor) for having immense faith in me and thus providing me with a valuable major project work in Mechanical Engineering.

The valuable opportunity provided to design a Heating Element for Indirect Heating was full of knowledge. It helped us a lot in formulating our bookish knowledge into practical. It provided us with industrial exposure, gathering information about works being performed in industries using fuels like wax, coaltar etc. We started our project work under the esteem guidance of Dr. J.S Oberoi in designing a test rig for measuring the heat transfer rates from one medium to another. The main motive was to design such a heating element which could liquefy the solid wax (fuel used in industry) during winters (as wax solidifies during winters). The heating element had to be installed in an indirect manner without affecting the initial setup.
The design of heating element was planned with the help of concepts of Heat and Mass Transfer. The project took nearly three...
