Areas of Research
The Centre for Materials Research (CMR) was established as the Composite Materials Research Laboratory in 2000 to pursue research leading to Ph.D and provide education in the Department of Mechanical engineering for both UG and PG Scholars and in interdisciplinary field of Materials Science and Technology. The Centre carries out research in many frontier areas of polymer composites and material Science, Active research groups exist in the fields of Processing and Characterization of Materials. The Centre is focused on the research of the processing and characterization of Composite Materials on the basis of fatigue, wear and Mach inability. A 100 KN capacity computer based universal testing machine with different environmental conditions like, elevated temperature and cryogenic and room temperature has been commissioned at the Centre for the research activities. The centre has been bolstered over the years through funding from AICTE, UGC, CSIR and TEQIP – I, II and III.
Since its inception, the Centre has supported the research activities of the many candidates in completing their doctoral programme. So far six candidates have successfully completed their Ph.D. programmes with the support of the Centre.
