Gaurav Chopra 2002 B.Tech Analysis of Thin-Walled Cylindrical Shells Under Axial Loading
Structures, which can tolerate large dynamic, or impact loads as in the case of earthquakes or vehicle accidents, are now being keenly investigated by a large number of research engineers around the world. The sturctural behavior of relatively thin-walled components under static or dynamic loading has been given much attention in crashworthiness studies as energy absorbing devices. The present thesis presents the study of thin-walled cylindrical shells under axial loading, the transition point and the factors that lead to the transition between the two modes of buckling: axisymmetric concertina mode and non-axisymmetric diamond mode is obtained. The experimental suudy is done for both quasi-static tests and dynamic loading conditions. Quasi-static tests were conducted on UNIVERSAL TESTING MACHINE (10 Tcapacity) and the impact tests on the GRAVITY DROP HAMMER setup. Cylindrical shells of aluminum, steel and PVC of different diameters, thickness and varying strain rates (for quasi-static tests) were tested and the results (load-deformation curves and modes of collapse)were recorded. Simulations were done on PAMCRASHTM after the static analysis was done on I-DEASTM for the impact tests. Analysis of the ecperimental results and the effect of diameter (D), THICKNESS (T), D/T ratio and the strain rates were done and the plots of mean collapse load vs. D/T for all materials and mean collapse load vs.strain rates for all the speciments were analyzed. The parametric study of the simulations results were also presented and the effect of contact friction between the specimen and the lower platen, thickness and the material properties were analyzed. It was found that the transition of the deformation mode depends both on friction as well as the thickness of the specimen.

Any system incorporating more than six degre of freedom, by using more actuators, is called a massive system. Hence the definition of MPBS, a system having more than six binary actuators connected in parallel.
In present project we have formulated and simulated the control algorithms for the system incorporating variors real life considerations like damping and time lag. We have also tried to demonstrate the concept of ID MPBS by developing (fabricating) a model.

Keywords: Massive, Parallel, Binary, Control, Damping, Time Lag.

Rajiv Kumar 2002 B.Tech Study of Crash of a Three-Wheeled Scooter Taxi with a Leg Impactor
Lower extremities are the most commonly injured body regions for non-fatal accidents. In the current project we have studied injury to the lower limbs of a pedestrian in impact with a Three Wheeled Scooter Taxi (TST). A detailed finite element model of the front portion of a TST and an equivalent model of the remaining portion of TST has been developed. Experiments were performed on front portion of TST, and the results of the experiments have been use to validate the model under static conditions.

A. Fonia 2001 B.Tech Design and Development of a Warming Device for Hypothermic Patient During Long Surgery
During long surgery an anesthetized patient's body temperature may fall down due to various reasons such as reduced metabolic rate, administration of the anesthesia etc. If the body temperature falls below 350C the patient starts shivering due to which the surgeon may have difficulty in performing the operation and it may prove to be fatal if the body temperature drops below 310C. This lowering of the body temperature below 350C is called hypothermia. There is no effective method available to treat hypothermia. In this project an attempt is an attempt is being made to develop a warming device for treating hypothermia. Tests will be carried out on patients if permission is granted to determine the effectiveness of the warming device.

Sachin Bhalla 2001 B.Tech Development of Microprocessor Controlled Intake and Exhaust Valves
Out of many options available for achieving a better performance of an automotive engine, Variable valve timing valves is among the most awaited. Some of the reputed organizations are involved in research for the same. Present work is aimed at design and development of microprocessor controlled variable timing valves operated by elevtromagnetic actuators. The appropriate components like peripheral logic devices, sensors, springs have been chosen. Solenoids, which would be used to operate the valves, have to be fabricated. For this, a complete circuit development has been carried out. A microprocessor program code for running the system in the manual mode has been developed. Amathematical model for solenoid operated valves has been developed. Owing to the unavailability of such a solenoid in market, a complete reengineering of the actuating system had to be done. A new mode, which offers a host of advantages, has been developed. Iterative design has been carried out to come out with appropriate design parameters. The project has required much help of outside industries. Many manufacturers were asked for custom making the original solenoid system. CTS Corp (USA) shipped throttle positon sensors. RS Components were asked to provide Hall Effect Vane Switch. Experimentation of the various components in order to understand the working and role in overall circuit had been carried out at Noise and Vibration Laboratory in the Department. Microprocessor programming was done in microprocessor laboratory in IDDC. The study of some of the parameter of the engine was carried out at IC engine laboratory.

Ravi Singh 2000 B.Tech Finding Equivalent Beam Elements for a Box Beam
Usually to save computation time and effort, beam elements are preferred over shell elements. In this work, effort has been made to find an equivalent beam element model of a box beam element model of a box beam which would be subsequently used to model the chassis of a car. This simplified model using beam elements can serve as an input to the main crash simulstion of a car and a motorcycle, thus achieving the simulations in a finite time with reduced complexity.
Chitranshu Srivastava
Use is made of finite element package NISA for modelling and solving FE models of the box beam under a given set of load and boundary conditions. The dimensions of the beam are systematically varied to study the effect of each parameter on the correlation between the shell and beam models. The aim is to see how well and under what limitations the best possible collerlation can be worked out.

Keywords: NISA FE model, box beam, beam element, shell element, simulation.

Anuj Gupta 2000 B.Tech Investigations into Microflight
This project titled "Investigations into Microflight" is aimed at designing a mechanism for flying a Micro Air Vehicle or aerial robot. The study part of the project includes the investigation into the concept of MAV and available options. The flapping insect model is chosen because it is a time-tested model by the nature, and very small insects have flapping wings. Further, the Weis Fogh Model gives more power to conventional flapping wings through its unique clap and fling approach.
The project has resulted in development of a mechanism simulating the Weis Fogh technique. 3D CAD models are developed to study feasibility and the design is developed on AutoCAD 14. A software is also made for kinematic analysis of the links. This report is also available on Internet at http://geocities.com/anujgpta/btp/

Keywords: Aerial robot, flapping wings, MAV, microflight and Weis Fogh.

Tanpreet Singh 2006 B.Tech Finite Element Mesh Operations for Simulation of Tibial Osteotomy
This project is aimed at developing mesh operation techniques for tibial osteotomy. In tibial osteotomy a wedge shaped bone is removed from tibia and then realigned to correct the deformation in the bone. The aim of this project is to develop a software technique for creating a wedge incision in FE model of tivia bone of patient. To achieve the simulation of wedge incision, a software has been developed in the present work. This project details the strategy for cutting the finite element mesh comprising of solid elements. Further the realignment procedure and methodology for joining the two meshes obtained after incision have been presented. The validity of the finite element model finally obtained has been established.

Manvinder Singh 2006 B.Tech Dynamic Analysis of Bicycle and Pedestrian Injuries for Various Crash Situations Using MADYMO
Bicyclists and pedestrians are the most vulnerable categories of commuters when it comes to crashes. This ovservation is more pronounced in heterogeneous traffic situations like in India. This project aims at analyaing crash situations involving injuries caused to bicyclists and pedestrians due to crashes with three different categories of vehicles-small cars, sports utility vehicles and buses. The analysis is done in MADYMOTM, which is a software package for simulating crashes through multi-body analysis and finite element methods. The Hybrid III 50th percentile male dummy model, available from MADYMOTM library was used for modeling the human and the vehicle models were developed. The output parameters tracked are the throw distance and the lead injury Criterion (HIC). Correlations between parameters such as car speeds and impact angles and the output parameters are studied. In this report, the results for Bicycle and Pedestrian impacts with a SUV and a flat front bus are presented. Impact simulations were also carried out for the Bluebire Vision bus design and the results were analyzed. The throw distances were found to be increasing with vehicle speeds and were much larger in SUV and car impacts as compared to the bus at higher speeds. The HIC values for the Bluebird vision bus were found to be much lower than the flat-fronted bus design at high speeds.

Gaurav Kewlani 2007 B.Tech Under Actuated Cyclic Gaits
A self-excited biped mechanism employs a passive knee joint and negative feedback at the upper hinge. This dissertation focuses on modelling of the biped leg as a double pendulum with impact at the knee. An unrestrained double pendulum exhibits chaotic behaviour. A stopper at the knee joint causes the lower link to impact with the upper one. The impact has been modelled using a spring-damper. The coefficient of restitution can be varied by controlling the stiffness and thedamping coefficient in the model. in the first phase of the project the points of transition from single pendulum to double pendulum (for plastic impacts without any fedback) and vice versa have been looked at and analytical solutions of the same have been tried. Now, varying the system parametmers (feedback constan, stiffness of spring, damping coefficient), a stable periodic cycle has been obtained. Using simulation techniques and theoretical analysis of dynamical systems, it is intended to quantify the behaviour of the system.

Ankur Goel 2007 B.Tech Investigations into Microflight
Insect flight has been the subject of a lot of recent attention, because of the discovery of several novel unsteady mechanisms of lift generation responsible for making insects some of the most efficient flyers. Presence of flexible moving parts in nature has also led to an immense interest in designing compliant mechanisms which can mimic natural motions. This report discusses the work done by us during the year 2006-07 as part of our B.Tech. Project. The project involves our investigations into the domain of micro-flight. The project involves the CFD simulation of the double flap Weis Fogh [1] mechanism, one of the aims being the integration of the driving mechanism dynamics with the CFD analysis of the existing model. A major part of the work features the analysis of a four bar mechanism with a compliant link and possible path generation with this mechanims. Simulations were also carried out using FLUENT 6.2 to determine the existence of an optimum flapping frequency which would result in maximum lift generation over a cycle. This report contains the details of the work done and a discussion of the results obtained.
