Mr. Venkatesu U

Topic: Fault diagnosis and prognosis of automotive clutches
PhD scholar (External): Ongoing since July 2018
Brief about topic: A clutch is a mechanical device which is used to connect or disconnect two rotating shafts on the will of the operator. There may be misalignment between engine and gear box, wear and tear, broken facing material and fatigue. These failures are to be diagnosed using condition monitoring techniques.

Mr. Sitesh Kumar Mishra

Topic: Severity quantification of defects in rolling element bearing
PhD scholar (MS to PhD conversion): Ongoing since December 2016
Brief about topic: Bearing is classified as a critical component of rotatory machines. Due to wide variety of applications health monitoring of the bearing is necessary. From health monitoring point of view development of a mathematical model is vital. We are developing a localized defect model of rolling element bearing for condition health monitoring. The proposed model addresses the fault diagnosis of the bearings along with the defect severity quantification.
Academic Background:
