DEPARTMENT OF METALLURGICAL AND MATERIALS ENGINEERING

INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY KHARAGPUR

Department

The department had its inception in 1956. Over the years, the department has developed excellent expertise in the areas of Extractive and Physical Metallurgy, Manufacturing Processes, Mechanical Behaviour of Materials, Nano-Science and Technology, Modelling and Simulation, Surface Engineering, Powder Metallurgy and Environmental Degradation of Materials. One of the very important dimensions of this department is its well equipped laboratory with sophisticated machines like High Resolution X-ray Diffractometers, Thermal Analyzers, Particle Size Analyzers, Digital Hardness Testers, Nano-indenter, Atomic Force Microscope, Universal Testing Machine, High Temperature Tensile and Compressive Creep Testing Machines, Rotating Bending Fatigue Testing Machine, Vacuum Induction Melting Furnace, High Energy Ball Mills, Plasma Ion Implanter, Erosion Rig, Potentiostats, Slow Strain Rate Testing Machine, Programmable Furnaces, Optical microscopes with Image Analyzer, Scanning Electron Microscope, Transmission Electron Microscope, and High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscope. The sponsored projects undertaken by the department are in the areas of Nanostructured materials, Interstitial-free and Micro Alloyed Steels, Composites, Intermetallics, Biomaterials, Lithium Ion Battery, Ultrahigh temperature ceramics, Fatigue, Creep and Fracture Mechanics, Structural Integrity Analysis of Irradiated Nuclear Material, Surface Engineering of Metals and Alloys, Oxidation and Environmental Degradation, Solidification Processing, Genetic Algorithm, Process Simulation and Modelling, and Evaluation of Ternary Alloy Phase Diagrams.
