About the Conference

Mechanical Engineering is a traditional field constantly evolving towards new concepts and optimized solutions to existing problems. The mechanical engineering research has become very sophisticated with the introduction of computers and electronics and paved the way for the emergence of new technologies. Globalized competitiveness and increased awareness of the environment have made the mechanical engineering research significantly different with more emphasis on competitive technologies and management approaches.

The objective of this conference is to bring together experts from academic institutions, industries and research organizations and professional engineers for sharing of knowledge, expertise and experience in the emerging trends related to Mechanical engineering education and research. The conference is structured as plenary lectures followed by parallel sessions. The plenary lectures will be delivered by the eminent personalities invited to introduce the theme of the conference. Each parallel session starts with an invited talk on specific topic followed by contributed papers. Papers are invited from the prospective authors from industries, academic institutions, R&D organizations and from professional engineers. Potential topics to be addressed in this conference include, but are not limited to the following:

Aerodynamics and fluid mechanics, Automation, Mechatronics, and Robotics, Automotive engineering, Bioengineering materials, biomechanics and biotribology, Bulk deformation processes and sheet metal forming, Composites, ceramics, and polymers processing, Computational mechanics / FEM modeling and simulation, Computer-based manufacturing technologies: CNC, CAD, CAM, FMS, CIM, Concurrent engineering

Editorial

In the Race of Scientific Civilization and Engineering Development Mechanical Engineering appears to be the oldest and broadest discipline. Till date it has accomplished many efficient mechanical systems using advanced practices of material science and Structural Analysis. As a matured academic discipline it has become an integrated component of Industrial Revolution. It has surpassed an odyssey of two centuries since its emergency in Europe. The basic philosophy although integrates two highlighting disciplines like Physics and Material Sciences but over the years it has developed its linkage with other domains like Composites, Mechatronics and Nanotechnology. Today’s Mechanical Engineers uses the core principles with some sophisticated tools like Computer Aided Designing, and Product Life Cycle Management. These tools are also employed in Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Petroleum Engineering and Chemical Engineering, Aircraft, Watercraft, Robotics and Medical Devices. In the advent of modern research there is a significant growth in Mechanical Engineering as Computer Aided Design has become instrumental in many industrialized nations like USA, European Countries, Scotland and GermOther CAE programs commonly used by mechanical engineers include product lifecycle management (PLM) tools and analysis tools used to perform complex simulations. Analysis tools may be used to predict product response to expected loads, including fatigue life and manufacturability. These tools include Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Using CAE programs, a mechanical design team can quickly and cheaply iterates the design process to develop a product that better meets cost, performance, and other constraints. No physical prototype need be created until the design nears completion, allowing hundreds or thousands of designs to be evaluated, instead of a relative few. In addition, CAE analysis programs can model complicated physical phenomena which cannot be solved by hand, such as viscoelasticity, complex contact between mating parts, or non-Newtonian flows. As mechanical engineering begins to merge with other disciplines, as seen in mechatronics, multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) is being used with other CAE programs to automate and improve the iterative design process. MDO tools wrap around existing CAE processes, allowing product evaluation to continue even after the analyst goes home for the day. They also utilize sophisticated optimization algorithms to more intelligently explore possible designs, often finding better, innovative solutions to difficult multidisciplinary design problems. Apart from Industrial Development there is also an hourly need for creation of an influential professional body which can cater to the need of research and academic community. The current scenario says there existed a handfull of bodies like American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Hence we must strive towards formation of a harmonious professional research forum committed towards discipline of Mechanical Engineering. The conference is designed to stimulate the young minds including Research Scholars, Academicians, and Practitioners to contribute their ideas, thoughts and nobility in these two integrated disciplines. Even a fraction of active participation deeply influences the magnanimity of this international event. I must acknowledge your response to this conference. I ought to convey that this conference is only a little step towards knowledge, network and relationship. I congratulate the participants for getting selected at this conference. I extend heart full thanks to members of faculty from different institutions, research scholars, delegates, IRNet Family members, members of the technical and organizing committee. Above all I note the salutation towards the almighty.
