About these proceedings


The book presents the best articles presented by researchers, academicians and industrial experts in the International Conference on “Innovative Design, Analysis and Development Practices in Aerospace and Automotive Engineering”. The book discusses new concept designs, analysis and manufacturing technologies, where more swing is for improved performance through specific and/or multifunctional linguistic design aspects to downsize the system, improve weight to strength ratio, fuel efficiency, better operational capability at room and elevated temperatures, reduced wear and tear, NVH aspects while balancing the challenges of beyond Euro IV/Barat Stage IV emission norms, Greenhouse effects and recyclable materials. The innovative methods discussed in the book will serve as a reference material for educational and research organizations, as well as industry, to take up challenging projects of mutual interest.

About the editors

Dr. R.P. Bajpai, Ph.D. (IIT-Delhi), D.Sc. (Hokkaido University, Japan) is presently the Vice-Chancellor of Vel Tech Dr. RR & Dr. SR Technical University, Chennai. He has also been the Director General of MM Group of Institution, MM University, Mullana and Vice-Chancellor of MM University Solan till November 30th 2011. At a time, he was also holding the charge of three Universities as Vice-Chancellor namely, (1) Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra; (2) Guru Jambheshwar University of Science & Technology, Hisar and (3) Deen Bandhu Chhotu Ram University of Science & Technology, Murthal simultaneously. Before joining GJU, Hisar, Dr Bajpai was Director/Distinguished Scientist/Scientist at Central Scientific Instrument Organization, Chandigarh, one of the pioneering Research laboratories under CSIR, Government of India, New Delhi. He has excellent knowledge of Japanese and German languages, having large number of publications in the National and International Journals of repute and good number of patents. Dr. Bajpai has guided large number of Ph.D. and M.S./M. Tech/B. Tech students for the thesis work for the award of degrees in various areas of electronics/microelectronics, materials science, nanoelectronics, optoelectronics etc. Dr. Bajpai was UNDP Project Co-ordinator/ Director for the Microelectronics Instrumentation Development programme started in 1984 at CSIO, Chandigarh. He has filed and registered large number of Patents. Dr. R.P. Bajpai has been Scientist/Visiting Professor in several universities at Japan, Germany, Switzerland, France and USA.

Dr. U. Chandrasekhar is the Director of Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), an autonomous organ of The Institution of Engineers (India). Before taking charge as Director – ESCI, he was an Additional Director at a Ministry of Defence R&D organisation called Gas Turbine Research Establishment. For the past 26 years, he has been involved in design, analysis, prototyping, rapid manufacturing and testing of aero gas turbine engines. He set up the first-ever rapid prototyping laboratory in the country. For his research efforts, he received commendation medal from the Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister. He received B.E. in Mechanical Engineering from NIT, Suratkal, M.Tech in Design Stream from IIT, Madras and Ph.D. from VTU. For his academic excellence at IIT-Madras, he received an award from former President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. He was trained in Germany, UK and Belgium in RP and sensor technologies. He is currently leading a critical technology development project of high temperature thin film sensors in collaboration with NRC, Canada. He currently serves in the council of the Institution of Engineers and National Design & Research Forum. He was also chosen to represent India in the Young Leaders Convention of World Federation of Engineering Organisations at Geneva. He has been invited by several national and international professional bodies as the key note speaker on advanced prototyping and sensor technologies.

Professor Avinash Arankalle is a M.Tech from IIT, Mumbai and Masters’ Diploma in Business Administration (MDBA) from Pune. He possesses +35 years of experience in the automotive industry and in particular in selection of materials, testing & characterization and failure analysis of automotive components. After working in Kirloskar Oil Engines, Paranjpe Engineering and Foundry Company, and Bajaj Auto Ltd., he retired as a senior executive from The Automotive Research Association of India, Pune. With experience and knowledge in Automotive Materials, now, he is associated with Vel Tech Dr. RR & Dr. SR Technical University in promoting various engineering post graduate programs, teaching specialized topics on engineering materials, guiding to the students for their thesis, etc. First of its kind, FRP leaf spring and propeller shaft for LCV he designed along with his team in ARAI, Pune and possesses Indian patent. He was the member of sub-committee on Automotive Materials & End-of-life of Vehicles of Core Group of Automotive R&D (CAR), various BIS committees (main & sub groups - PCD1, PCD 3 and PCD 4) as well as AISC sub-committee on elastomers while being in ARAI, Pune and was associated in preparing standards on anti-freeze engine coolant IS-5759, Pull-push type control cables, plastic fuel tank, flammability test, elastomeric materials and components, fuels & lubricants, brake fluid, etc. He has set up state-of-the-art test facility at ARAI, Pune, iCAT, Mannesarand ARAI-FID, Chakan for material testing & characterization. For over 30 students of engineering colleges, he provided the guidance for their thesis work for completion of graduate and post graduate degrees. Published over 40 papers at National and International forums which includes papers on fuel quality, significance of diesel fuel flash point, analysis of toxic constituents in fuels that are carcinogenic in nature, advances in ceramic materials for auto engines, automotive plastics and composites, design of FRP leaf spring & propeller shaft, etc. Being one of the founder member of ASM International Pune Chapter and as a former Chairman of Education Committee, he conducted various educational courses for the industry which includes the famous one on “Metallurgy for Non Metallurgists”. On behalf of ARAI, Pune, ARAI-FID, Chakan and Arkey Conferences, Pune he conducted over 40 conferences at National and International levels at a level of Chairman, co-chairman and member.
