RESEARCH INTERESTS

Material-property relationships especially of high temperature super alloys such as titanium, Inconel, titanium alumindes etc. Currently there is a great deal of focus on welding of these newly developed and advanced super alloys which are replacing steel owing their superior characteristics. Application of characterization techniques such as nanoindetation, EBSD, XRD, residual stress measurement, elevated temperature tensile testing are most promising in understanding the behavior of these super alloys.
