Decentralized Sustainable Energy Planning For Tumkur District, India
(20100218)The energyplanning involves finding a set of sources and conversion devices so as to meet the energy requirements/demands of all the activities in an optimal manner. This could occur at centralized or decentralized level. ... 
Delamination Modeling and Detection in Composite Structures
(20171212)Composite laminated structures are prone to delamination. Rotorcraft flexbeams, apart from many other aerospace primary load carrying members are made up of composite laminated structures. A delaminated primary load carrying ... 
Demonstration Of Supersonic Combustion In A Combustion Driven ShockTunnel
(20110117)For flights beyond Mach 6 ramjets are inefficient engines due to huge total pressure loss in the normal shock systems, combustion conditions that lose a large fraction of the available chemical energy due to dissociation ... 
Design and Development of 75 mm FixedWing Nano Air Vehicle
(20180611)This thesis deals with the design and development of a 75 mm fixedwing nanoair vehicle (NAV). The NAV is designed to fit inside a cube with each side measuring 75 mm. The range and endurance of the NAV are 300 m and 23 ... 
Design And Development Of Diaphragmless Hypersonic Shock Tunnel
(20110316)The growing requirements to achieve hypersonic flights, as in the case of reentry vehicles, pose a serious challenge to the designers. This demands an understanding of the features of hypersonic flow and its effect on ...

A Design Procedure for Flapping Wings Comprising Piezoelectric Actuators, Driver Circuit, and a Compliant Mechanism
(20180605)Flappingwing micro air vehicle (MAV) is an emerging microrobotic technology, which has several challenges toward its practical implementation. Inspired by insect flight, researchers have adopted biomimicking approach ... 
Design, Development And Flight Control Of Sapthami  A Fixed Wing Micro Air Vehicle
(20100921)Two micro air vehicles, namely Sapthami and Sapthamiflyer, are developed in this thesis. Their total weight is less than 200grams each. They ﬁt inside a 30cm and 32cm sphere respectively and carry the commercially available ... 
Determination Of Isopectral Rotating And NonRotating Beams
(20160427)In this work, rotating beams which are isospectral to nonrotating beams are studied. A rotating beam is isospectral to a nonrotating beam if both the beams have the same spectral properties i.e; both the beams have the ... 
Development and Application of Kinetic Meshless Methods for Euler Equations
(Indian Institute of Science, 20051017)Meshless methods are a relatively new class of schemes for the numerical solution of partial differential equations. Their special characteristic is that they do not require a mesh but only need a distribution of points ... 
Development And Design Optimization Of Laminated Composite Structures Using Failure Mechanism Based Failure Criterion
(20090427)In recent years, use of composites is increasing in most fields of engineering such as aerospace, automotive, civil construction, marine, prosthetics, etc., because of its light weight, very high specific strength and ...
