Introduction and Vision


One of the founding units of the Institute, the Department of Mechanical Engineering has played a
leading role in defining a unique engineering science curriculum that has served as a model for academic
programs around the country. It has played a prominent role by setting standards in teaching while
creating new interdisciplinary programs in industrial engineering, mechatronics, and nuclear technology.
Developments in electronics, computers and lasers have been integrated into academic programmes, thus
creating an edge in its professional activities.
The domain of mechanical engineering education is vast. Stemming from industrial revolution itself, it
has evolved over decades from emphasis on principles of mechanics and thermodynamics to understanding large-scale industrial systems. It has historically focused on subjects such as machines and engines,
their performance and development of newer configurations. Changes are driven by advancements in
computational tools, drastically superior measurement techniques, and new manufacturing capabilities.
Recent developments in information technology, on one hand, and materials, on the other, have profoundly impacted the discipline, calling for a serious review of its outlook and activities.
The Department graduates around 100 undergraduates each year, 50 Masters, and 10 -15 Ph.Ds. Many
of its alumni hold eminent positions in the academia and the industry around the world. A wide spectrum of courses is offered at levels ranging from the undergraduate to the doctoral. Many subjects
such as computational mechanics, laser measurements, micro scale devices and transport phenomena,
smart materials and structures, multi-scale simulation, rapid prototyping, futuristic manufacturing, and
thermal systems are offered as electives. On an average, two or three new courses are proposed every
year, keeping in mind the development of the discipline. We are also well-recognized for leading student
initiatives such as the nano-satellite and the Boeing-supported autonomous vehicle program.
Faculty members, 37 in number at present, have excellent academic credentials and are highly regarded.
They have been conferred awards at national and international levels. The fellowships received by the
faculty members include, Boyscast, Swarnajayanti, Bhatnagar, Humboldt and JSPS. Many of the faculty members have membership in one or more professional societies and a few are elected Fellows of
various professional bodies such as INAE, INSA and ASME. Several serve on the editorial boards of
international and national journals, review technical articles for journals on a regular basis and are technical and organizing committee members of international symposia and conferences. Several others have
excelled in teaching and have been conferred suitable awards. Some faculty member have authored quite
a few textbooks, some are recognized as classics in their respective domains. While publication statistics
reveal 3 good papers per faculty per year, emphasis is also laid on patents and technology development.
The Department has identified its strengths that form the basis of its future aspirations.
Advanced mechanics and multi-scale modelling: Major disciplines such as condensed matter
physics, fluid dynamics, optics, nonlinear dynamics and structural mechanics derive ideas from
classical mechanics. The primary aim is to understand, follow, and ultimately predict critical
parameters such as peak stress or maximum temperature or largest deformation or highest current
density or incipient failure of a system, given knowledge of its interaction with the environment, and
the stress response of the material composing the system. There is an ever-growing requirement
for detailed analyses, addressing complex loading patterns, non-mechanical interactions such as
thermal or electromagnetic fields, incorporating real geometry, and, importantly, realistic material
behaviour.
Non-invasive measurements: Techniques have been developed for measuring transport properties in solids, fluids, and fluid mixtures using lasers, -rays and ultra-sound. Other applications
are seen in non-destructive testing, void fraction measurements in nuclear reactors, and process
control in power plants.
1

Manufacturing processes for new-era machines and components:There is substantial interest and expertise in process development, optimization and control related to conventional and
non-conventional manufacturing processes, micro- and nano-manufacturing and CNC machining.
Development of new-era machines of small length scales, based on self-organizing smart materials,
including generative processes, micro-fabrication and self-assembly is one of the current research
areas. Such machines are envisioned to have multiple applications in molecular recognition, achieve
displacements and precise actuation at the micro- to nano-scales. It includes the concepts of errorfree manufacturing, the self-correcting nature of the shaping process, advanced metrology, and
software development for CAD-to-product processes. One other research area is concerned with
nano-finishing of large components and controlled patterning of surfaces. A thorough evaluation of
nanotribological aspects of surfaces is also included particularly in micro-nano scale machines. One
of the mandates is also to develop hybrid processes for surface texturing using modern machining
techniques which can alter the functionality of new-era machines. A line of interest lies in process
modelling and simulation for metal forming, machining processes, component design and thermal
and transport phenomena of various manufacturing processes with an aim towards the development of improved manufacturing and materials processes. These include casting, high energy beam
assisted manufacturing, surface coating and deposition processes, texturing and electromagnetic
materials processing.
Energy: The present-day concern with shortages in energy resources and the quality of emissions
and environment has pitched the subject to the forefront. The discussions on bio-fuels, hydrogen
economy, fuel cells, gas hydrates and CO2 management have a societal angle to them. We try to
understand combustion in a transparent internal combustion engine with an aim to reduce emissions and improve thermal efficiency. Several gaseous and liquid alternative fuels and advanced
engine technology such as laser ignition and Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition are being
developed in addition to large bore engines development and exhaust gas after-treatment systems.
The department is home to the expertise on pulsating heat pipes, a technology of critical importance in thermal management. New initiatives can be seen in the area of thermal energy storage
using phase change materials.
Computational mechanics and transport: It includes composite materials, structural analysis,
fluids and turbulence, heat and mass transfer, multi-body dynamics, and optimization. The next
era will require greater creativity in mathematical modelling, multi-scale simulation and ultra-fast
computation of unstable systems in the engineered as well as the natural world. Validation of the
models and theories against experiments is one of our research targets.
The department is aware of the need to collaborate and be in continuous contact with the outside
world. Recently concluded Indo-US and Indo-Japan projects are role models to build upon. The
railway technology mission from Ministry of Railways and the CFD software project for BARC
Mumbai are the largest technological missions granted to our Institute. It is an active participant
in the Gas Turbine Research Initiative of the Ministry of Defence. The collaboration on futuristic
mechanics with IGCAR Kalpakkam is a unique experiment expected to bear fruit. The task of
developing trained manpower for the industry remains a primary responsibility.
In a nut shell, our vision is: We will focus on developing cutting-edge technologies of inter-disciplinary
nature on multiple scales. To this end, we will broaden our self-definition and be a continuing source of
ideas to the society.

4. An Electronic Fuel Injection System for a 4-stroke Locomotive Diesel Engine of Indian Railways:
An electronic fuel injection system for a 4-stroke, 16 cylinders, V-configuration, medium speed,
large bore locomotive diesel engine was developed and successfully retrofitted on a rebuilt diesel
locomotive by Engine Research Laboratory, IIT Kanpur and Engine Development Directorate,
RDSO, Lucknow. A savings of 4% fuel consumption over the duty cycle was obtained. In addition
there was an appreciable reduction in the smoke emissions during steady-state as well as transient
operations.
5. Indian patent filed for Integrated system for Using Straight Vegetable Oils as Fuels for Diesel
Engines: This design enables utilization of waste exhaust heat to precondition the vegetable oil
by raising its temperature to a level, where the physical properties of vegetable oil come within
a very narrow band of that of petroleum diesel fuel at room temperature. This system enables
effective utilization of straight vegetable oils without the problems such as injector coking, poor
atomization, ring sticking and cylinder deposits.
