Project Proposals Submitted to various funding agencies:

1. Mechanical Characterization of Self healing composites under various hygrothermal


conditions. (DST)
2. Development of Nano Microvascular Self healing composites. (DRDO)
3. Design and Development of Self healing Composite for Aerospace application.
(INDO- Portuguese)
4. Mechanical development of Microvascular channels in composites and characterization for
Self healing purposes. (AR&DB)

Projects Handled
1. Manufacturing and Development of Piezo fibers based smart materials

This work deals with studying the effect of positioning and number of PFC with IDE (PFC-W14)
embedded in a multilayer glass fibre composite for energy harvesting. Vibration test for different
frequencies were conducted on specimens using electro-dynamic shaker. The results of this study
are presented with an eye toward obtaining guidelines for design of useful energy harvesting
aircraft structures.

2. Life Prediction of Composite Pipes using Acoustic Emission Technique


A composite pipe was manufactured using filament winding machine in Madras Institute of
Technology in which a pre-determined scratch and fiber cut were given at certain places. Reaction
of acoustic waves as they pass through these defects were analyzed for detecting cracks and fiber
cuts in the material.

3. Manufacturing and Development of Self healing Composites


Involved in the development of smart composites materials with intrinsic self-healing properties
at Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), India.
Extrinsic Self Healing System is again classified basically in three ways
i) Microspheres
ii) Hollow Glass Fibres
iii) Microvascules
I am currently working on Micro-vascular based self healing system.
Vascular self healing materials emulate on a macro level healing by the vascular and circulation
systems in animals. With a circulation system, the healing agent can be refilled providing potential
for continuous healing agent delivery and flow control.

4. Electrospinning of PVDF for structural health monitoring.
I am also involved in creating nano PVDF fibers for the development of Structural health
monitoring of Composite structures without affecting its basic properties for which it was
designed.
