    Surface Treatment

    Most of the applications demand the high strength, high corrosive resistant and wear resistant, materials for their needs. It is very difficult to get all the desirable properties in one material, if it is available also that will be of high cost. Because of these reason surface coatings have found more application and this method will overcome the limitations of using single material or alloy. In the cases where material selection is difficult as it requires several potential properties like chemical and thermal stability, good mechanical as well as tribological properties along with reduction of weight, ceramic coatings like alumina, zirconia, ZTA and/or composites might be the better solution. A research group is evolving in the department on these aspects.

    Technology / Production Management

    Our research brings a quantitative methodology to understand the relationship between technological capability and the various learning mechanisms that are believed to influence it. Most cluster based studies have been on a case study basis and generally lack quantitative approach and rigor. We have developed s a unique index to measure technological capability, which should be useful to make assessment of technology level of firms.

    Nanocomposites

    Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. At the nanoscale, materials exhibit very high aspect ratio, as a result enhancement in their mechanical and physical properties has been observed. The Nanocomposites form the class of engineering materials with high aspect ratio to be used for influencing fuel economy, reducing the weight of an automotive, spacecraft and aircraft, enhancing the damping ability, making wear resistant surfaces and thermally stable structures. In our Department of Mechanical Engineering, faculty have carried out and carrying research as a part of their Doctoral work on Polymer Nanocomposites, Aluminium-CNT Metal Matrix composites and Natural fiber-CNT reinforced polymer composites. This area of nanocomposites offers a good number of avenues for the mechanical engineers to come out with better material systems for the sustainable development of the society.

    Bio Composites

    Depletion of petroleum resources, increases in landfill space for plastic materials and their non-degradable properties had become global problem. In order to find the solution for environmental pollution the new branch of Material science called biocomposites has emerged. Natural fibers and bio derived polymers are used to characterize the materials properties in order to suit different applications, where end product is bioderagadable in nature. A research group in the department has dedicated itself towards finding solutions in this socially important field.

    Polymer Composites

    Polymers and their composites are finding applications in almost every walk of life thanks to the plethora of advantages carried by them, such as light weight, low cost, corrosion, resistance and easy processing, to name a few. The unique flexibility of designing the materials with tailor made properties to suit a particular application makes composites a popular category of advanced materials. Processing and characterization of different types of thermosets and thermoplastic polymers with a wide range of reinforcing materials has been the subject of many research activities all over the globe. Bio-degradable polymers and reinforcements are slowly catching up in the wake of large demand for eco-friendly materials. Research in this field has been initiated in the department.

    Alternate Fuels

    Global warming, high-energy demand and availability of new technologies are among the factors catalyzing the search for alternative sources of energy. Energy demand is expected to increase due to the expanding urbanization, better living standards and increasing population. At a time when society is becoming increasingly aware of the declining reserves of fossil fuels beside the environmental concerns, it has become apparent that biodiesel is destined to make a substantial contribution to the future energy demands of the domestic and industrial economies. There are different potential feed stocks for biodiesel production such as Simarouba, Jathropha, Neem, Pongamia, Linseed oil etc. which are known as the next generation alternate fuels for the production of biodiesel. Active research is going on in the department in this vital field.

    Design & Analysis

    The structural elements are most commonly employed in many structural applications like aerospace, automotive, civil, marine and other machinery structures. Design and analysis of structural elements is most important in engineering applications to predict their life of service. In many instances, such elements are subjected to a wide variety of excitations and can be controlled by different methods. A few researchers in the department are working on vibration control of structural elements like plates, blades, bearings, etc. through analytical, numerical and experimental techniques to improve their service life .Also many research papers have been published in refereed journals.

    Mechanical Processing

    Studies on formability of thin plates has assumed great importance for the Indian automobile industry. At the same time, cutting edge technologies like ECAP and ECAD are being commercialized. Research on formability of plates and wires of different materials addresses these important aspects and after preliminary experimentation and publications, it is expected that funded projects would be operative in this research area.
