शोध प्रयोगशालाएं / Research Laboratories
The research work at IIT Ropar Department of Mechanical Engineering is contributing strongly to medical discoveries, sustainable fuels and energy resources, intelligent automation, micro- and nanosciences, and advanced manufacturing processes. Below you will see many creative ways our faculty, alumni, and students are bringing out their talent, passion, and interests in exploration of manufacturing and maintenance art, in designing next generation equipment, engines, fuels, robotic mechanisms, bio-inspired engineering, and many more. Regular interaction with industry through collaborative projects, course requirements and general discussions on advancements in technological aspects develop an environment closer to the practical essence of engineering. Regular activities are arranged and encouraged in the department for indigenous product development, skills enhancement, and interdisciplinary interactions.
Design research explores the exercise of designing products, processes, and their services. Design research is targeted at developing new skills and knowledge to improve the sustainability of products and processes. Design research investigates the process of designing products, processes, and services. Design research aims to develop new design knowledge, skills, and their methods of application. It is thus related to design methods in general, concerned with undertaking research on the design process. Design researchers develop design methods and tools for designers to increase their productivity and to help them design better products. Thus to develop new and innovative products, research in design is very important. The development of methodologies, tools, and techniques for better, robust, and inclusive design is a must to achieve success in New Product Development (NPD). Thus there is a need to initiate research in the area of design research (DR).
BNMC is dedicated in the area of Bio and Nano materials engineering with a focus on the combined experimental characterization as well as computational analysis of mechanical properties, stress/strain, and microstructure of engineering and biological materials and their applications in advancing manufacturing and materials processing technologies, engineering design analyses, and biomedical sciences and engineering.

The unique combination of properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) makes them suitable for a number of high-end technological applications. Here in MAdMatLab (Mechanics of Advanced Materials Laboratory), we are harnessing their properties in advanced composites for aerospace applications, CNT-based sensors, targeted drug delivery, and CNT enabled superhydrophobic self-cleaning surfaces.

The multi dimensional analytical solution to solve complex material problem is our focus. In my research group, MUltifunctional- Materials Structures and Equipment Lab, at IIT Ropar, we work in coordination to solve the very problem of Mechanical, Robotics and Aerospace with our tools such as Variational Asymptotic Method (VAM) to get the asymptotic correct analytical solution. We are in constant phase of learning and exploring new dimension of science and technology towards a better future tomorrow.
At RMML, the research emphasis is on identifying connections among microstructure, deformation mechanisms, and mechanical properties of materials using both experiments and multiscale simulation techniques. Research work at RMML is primarily divided into two areas as of now, the first one dealing with experimental and computational studies of metallic materials under the aggressive environment with the primary focus of hydrogen-based degradation of metals and the second one dealing with experimental and computational studies of polymeric materials.

The research in the Material Behavior Research Laboratory (MBRL) is focused primarily on the fundamental understanding of material deformation and damage behavior under different static and dynamic loading conditions like tension, compression, fatigue, creep, cavitation impact etc. at room and high temperature. The main objective is to understand the correlation between material’s internal changes and bulk mechanical response through different experimental techniques, and then validation by numerical simulations.
