Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my webpage…

I joined Applied Mechanics Department, VNIT Nagpur in July, 2016.

I am a researcher working in the area of  "Blast Resistant Design of Strutcures and thier Mitigation Using Advanced Lightweight and Engineered Materials". My research focus is application of advanced lightweight and engineered materials for blast resistant design of structures and components. As you can see that this research requires knowledge of materials as well as various FE packages due to the complexity invloved in such analysis and design. Design of structures, under such extreme loadings, is an interdisplinary effort wherein experts from different fields works in synchronization. It needs understanding of analytical models, numerical analysis, and finally the experimental evaluation to arrive at viable solutions.

Areas of Current Research Interest:

1. Blast Resistant Design of Structures
2. Behavior of Materials at Low, Medium and High Rate of Loadings
3. High Strain Rate Characterization of Foam Materials and Composites
4. Numerical Simulation and Analysis of Blast and Impact Events
5. Crashworthiness and Impact Mechanics
