Pankaj Pawar 2010 M.Tech Design and Development based Micro-Actuatian system
Micro actuation systems are needed for micro component integration. The motivation to conduct this activity is to automate the grasping process and thus enable micro-handling. The idea of present work is to develop a manipualtion system of size similar to our hand for handling small objects and should be scalable to handle micro components. The target size of objects and should be scalable to handle micro components. The target size of objects would be within optical range (maximum major dimension: 1mm and minor dimension: 0.1mm). Workspace of the manipulator of maximum cubical dimensions (10cm x 10cm x10cm) is decided on the basis on anthropometry of our finger. A design where all motors are on the fixed base of manipulator is suggested which is known as DELTA configuration. Serial manipulators are not appropriate because of their limited rigidity and need for carrying motors at each junction. Among parallel manipulators, DELTA configuration is suited to requirement of micro actuation system, as it has static actuators, high stiffness, and small mass of links and potentially higher accuracy in comparison to serial manipulators.
This thesis follows the work done by Arora, 2009. It covers the dynamic modeling and validation of the Delta manipulator. It also states the limitation of the manipulator at micro levels and thus suggests the repoacement of revolute joints with flexure hinges. It covers the design of flexure hinges and manufacturing method to integrate the flexure hinges with rigid links. To study the dynamic behavior of DELTA configuration with flexure hinges a Pseudo-Rigid-Body model of the structure is developed. This model considers the flexure hinges as torsional springs mounted at the pin joints in place of only revolute joints. However, this approach has another limitation that it ignores the accurate deflection in flexure joints. So, another classical approach is suggested at the end of the work which considers the deflection of joints while defining the dynamics of the system. The approach uses Lagrange's equation of motion and it computes the kinetic and potential energy for the flexures as well as for rigid links while deals with dynamics.

Keywords: Delta configuration, Manipulator, Dynamics, Flexible-Rigid-Body model, Pseudo-Rigid-Body model, compliant mechanisms, Flexure Hinges.

Raghu Vamsi Kanugula 2010 M.Tech Crash Reconstruction using Multi Body Simulation and Optimiaztion Technique
Crash is a rare, unplanned and severe accident event. The crash reconsturction is the scientific process of investigating, analyzing and drawing conclusions about the causes and events during a vehicle collision. Reconstruction is done for to identify the collision causation and contrubution factors. These results are useful for better crash worthiness.
Severe occupant lower extremity injuries occur primarily in vehicle-vehicle frontal crashes. The project would establish a methodology to simulate real life road accidents and correlate lower extremity injury locations and predictions with known injury and accident data. First stage of the project was accident data collection at the Birmingham Automotive Safety Centre, Uneversity of Birmingham, UK. In the second stage understanding of the accident reconstruction methodologies of passenger cars, review of lower extremity injury mechanisms and associated injury criteria. In the third stage crash case was reconsturcted by using multi body system occupant and car models to acquire the lower extremity impact conditions in MADYMOTM. Optimization method was applied to simulation process to find optimum value of the variables such as vehicle speed, occupant position and orientationto reach the required probability of injury to the lower extremities.
The project hence establishes methodology to evaluate the crashworthiness of a vehicle based on the occupant lower extremity injury criteria prediction. The project eventually contributes towards design of safer vehicles from the point of view of occupant safety.

Keywords: vehicle-vehicle crash reconsturction, lower extremity injuries, FFC,TI.

Joel Keishing 2010 M.Tech Micro-Drop System
Computer simulations are cost effective as compared to full-scale crash tests, and also provide a great deal of information that is frequently unavailable from full-scale crash testing. A well-developed human body model helps in understanding injury mechanisms and also helps to know the effect of modifications made to vehicles. This thesis is focused on determining dynamic mechanical properties of cancellous bones especially at the strain rates of 130-175/s.
For this rate characterization of compressive properties of cancellous bones Micro-drop System is used. Cylindrical specimens of 4-6 mm diameter and 1.5-2 mm thickness from cancellous bones are taken for experiment. The Young's moduli are calculated from linear portion of stress-strain curves.
