  • Aerospace Engineering Department at Amrita University, Coimbatore Campus, acquired a MiG-23, a fighter-aircraft, from the Indian Ministry of Defense. With this acquisition, students are able to better study the functions and workings of various subsystems of an aircraft. They have an opportunity to lay hands on a real-life aircraft and its subsystems; they get a first-hand experience. The majority of its subsystems are already in place. The Aerospace Engineering Department was started at Amrita in 2007 and over 190 students are currently enrolled in the Aerospace B-Tech program. The department has set up state-of-the-art labs, including an Aerodynamics Lab, Aerospace Structures Lab, Propulsion Lab, and Flight Dynamics and Control Lab.

  • Dispersion of nanocarbon forms and metal nanoparticles in a conducting polymer matrix facilitates coating of such materials. Different nanocarbon materials such as single walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT), double walled carbon nanotube (DWCNT), multi walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT), and graphene are being synthesized using Radio Frequency (RF) Catalytic Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD).

  • This research contributed to the deployment of world’s first wireless sensor network for landslide detection. This research was initially part of WINSOC project, funded by the European Commission under FP6 program. The Government of India plans to deploy this system in all landslide prone areas of India, furthering three projects with DeitY, DST, and MoES.

  • The objective of the work was to develop aluminum alloys containing lithium, copper, and zirconium for aerospace applications. Moderately thick deposits of binary and ternary alloys of aluminum with lithium, copper and zirconium were successfully electrodeposited. This was achieved at room temperature through the use of low cost ionic liquid containing AlCl3 and triethylammine hydrochloride (Et3NHCl).

  • The stability theory of stream ciphers suggests that good key stream sequences must not only have a large linear complexity, but also change of a few terms must not cause a significant drop of the Linear complexity. This unfavorable property leads to the concept of k-error linear complexity. In this project we propose to extend this to the case of multisequences.

  • This research project identifies an appropriate combination of metal-elastomeric module configuration, using multi-layer shear damped viscoelastic approach, for mitigating the structure-bound vibrations on to the sensitive equipment. The composites are made of a metal (aluminium), and an elastomer (natural rubber and silicone rubber).

  • The funded amount received from AICTE under Research Promotion Scheme (RPS) will be utilized to create facility with a vision system and a tri-axial manipulator in the Welding Research Lab. Research in the area of controlling the welding process with a feed-back of weld pool geometry has been of interest lately as a way to improve the quality and the consistency.

  • In this project we are attempting to address various VLSI design related issues with a special focus on low area and low power implementation of the finite filed arithmetic. We intend to select a few algorithms with the potential for application in the area. Their realization with FGPA will be studied, analyzed and compared. The focus will be on the identification of algorithms and parameter combinations which will deliver optimum performance.
