Research Overview: The mission of Advanced Materials & Manufacturing Division is to provide solution to the materials related problems and the associated manufacturing difficulties faced by industries broadly in the automotive, aerospace, defence sectors, etc. Apart from this, the group is also involved in fundamental research, understanding the materials response to thermo-mechanical loading on a way of developing advanced materials by engineering the microstructure. The core competencies of the group are in thermo-mechanical process modelling, advanced coating technologies, machining and forming of advanced engineering materials, microstructural characterisation and structure-property correlation.

Research Overview: The mission of Solid Mechanics and Design Division is to research and to provide solutions on design and mechanics based problems. The division’s core competence covers aspects of mechanics of fracture, composite materials, finite element method, and mechanical behaviour of soft materials and metals. The research activities involve experimental and computational techniques applied over a wide range of materials, composites, metals, polymers, etc. More recently the division has been focusing on the fracture in rubber-like materials and friction stir welded materials. The research division also carry out numerical modeling of residual stress developed during the welding process.

Research Overview: The mission of Thermal and Fluid Engineering Division is to provide solutions in fluid motions, heat transfer, applied thermodynamics, IC engines and alternative fuels. The research division mainly focuses on fluid flow and heat transfer aspects at microscale in view of employing the fundamental findings in the design of microfluidics devices. Further, the group is actively involved in the exhaust emission characterisations, fuel spray investigation for alternative fuels subsequently in the development of fuel additives and catalytic development of after treatment devices. In this direction groups employs experimental, numerical and analytical tools.
