Smart Material & Structure Research Laboratory


Brief Description about the lab:

The design and implementation of smart structures necessitatethe integration of 1) smart sensors and actuators, 2) structural analysis and design, and 3) intelligent electronics and control techniques. The field of smart structures is one of several areas of science (i.e.,physics) and engineering where knowledge is distributed in several disciplines and requires integrationinto a single functional unit. The aim of Smart Materials and Structures Laboratory (SMSL) is to providestate-of-the-art facilities for the teaching, research and development of novel smart materials andstructures technologies, and to design and implement smart devices for enhancing the adaptability,functionality, and precision of structural systems Courses to be supported: Mechanics of solid (ME206), Mechanical Vibration (ME602),Introduction to smart material and structure (MEXXX)

Academic Programs to be supported /Teaching UG & PG Courses:

B. Tech, M.Tech, MS & PhD

Broad research areas:

Polymer composites, metal matrix composites, microwave, curing, cladding, FEM, mechanical testing.
