About Us

Engineering Optics Lab is involved with application of optical techniques for whole field stress/strain analysis of any structural components.

Our broad area of research covers Material Characterisation, High temperature material testing, Fundamental fracture studies, Damage mechanics, Biomechanics and Composite repair.

We are actively involved in fracture and fatigue study in CFRP laminates and Aluminium alloys. Also we are studying repair aspect applicable to aerospace & automobile structures involving various experimental techniques like DIC, Strain Gauges, Digital Reflection & Transmission Photoelasticity and FEA.

This lab is headed by Dr. M. Ramji, Asst Professor, Dept of Mechanical Engineering and his areas of interest includes Optical Methods in Engineering, Applied FEA and Fracture, Experimental Stress Analysis, Inverse problem in Solid Mechanics and Composite Repair.
