Research & Development


IIT Indore envisages the process of convergence of traditional disciplines as the key to accomplish the previously unimaginable. With this foresight, IIT Indore has been promoting multi-disciplinary research programme, focusing on basic and applied research, technology development and innovation. It is this vision that has helped the institute to do very well in all spheres of science, engineering and humanities and social sciences.

 

A core competency of IIT Indore is research driven academic programme as it forms a core component of the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. At IIT Indore, we have consciously promulgated the idea of involving undergraduate students in forefront research projects. This led to the initiation of a formal undergraduate research scheme entitled, "Promotion of Research and Innovation for Undergraduate Students".

Latest @ R and D


Research at IIT Indore has been recognized at international level with active participation in several key international projects and several joint collaborations with research organizations in Japan, South Korea, Russian Federation, Portugal, France, Germany, USA, and many other countries. The institute has been successful in securing 82 externally sponsored research projects worth over Rs. 22 Crores.

 

IIT Indore recognizes that encouraging entrepreneurship for technology development, economic and social stability is need of the hour. The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) at IIT Indore was started with the same vision. IIT Indore students are in the process of having their own start-ups thus applying innovation into practicality for the benefit of all. In the coming years, IIT Indore will develop into a world class centre for higher academic and industrial research and innovation.


RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS

NVH and Fault Diagnosis

Noise Vibration and Harshness control of VECV truck: Under UAY project, an experimental study has been conducted using various commercially available sound absorbing materials to reduce the noise level inside the truck cabin. Results have shown that the noise level can be reduced by 20 dB inside the cabin. Dynamic modeling and fault diagnosis of planetary gear train: Under India-Tunisia project dynamic modelling of planetary gearbox has been done to understand the response of planetary gearbox. Advanced signal processing techniques have been proposed for gear fault diagnosis.

Nano-hetero-architectures: prominent field electron emitters for displays

The high aspect ratio and sharp tip features of one-dimensional (1D) metal oxide nanostructures have engaged most of the researchers to explore their electronic/physical properties for the development of efficient functional devices for energy conversion and conservation. TiO2 is one of them but explored to a certain extent for field-emission displays despite its low work function of 3.9 to 4.5 eV. Moreover, the synthesis of pure brookite (β) phase is always challenging due to its metastable nature and commonly accompanied with the anatase and/or rutile phases. That is why numerous scientific reports are found on the utilization of rutile and anatase phases for a variety of applications including field emitters. High-temperature calcination and annealing processes were unsuccessful in yielding pure β phase.
