    Sachin P George

    I am Sachin P George (2013-2017 batch), I have completed my Mechanical Engineering in KITS. As our chancellor says "We are Chosen by god to study in KITS", and it proves to be very true in my life. I completed my 12th std with a very descent marks and applied to a lot of college but could not clear any of their entrance examination and Karunya Entrance Exam was my final hope....

    Cutting Edge Research

    Development of Non- Asbestos Organic Brake Friction Materials
    Research Scholar: Mr. J. Sudhan Raj, RR13ME003
    under the guidance of Dr. T. V. Christy,
    Professor of Department of Mechanical Engineering.

    The most paramount safety aspect of an automobile is its brake system, which must stop the vehicle and also do so reliably under varying conditions. During a cessation, the kinetic energy of a moving conveyance is converted to heat at the sliding interface of the friction pair. Emission of dust from asbestos during braking causes lung diseases. The raised levels of awareness in health hazards due to asbestos led to non-asbestos friction compositesautomotive brake disc pads, shoes, linings, blocks, clutch facings, etc.

    Fabrication and characterization of Al syntactic foams
    Research Associate: Mr. Jerin Jose
    under the guidance of Dr. T. V. Christy,
    Professor of Department of Mechanical Engineering.
    Syntactic foams are composite materials synthesized by filling a metal, polymer,or ceramic matrix with hollow spheres called micro-balloons or cenospheres.The presence of hollow particles results in lower density, higher specific strength (strength divided by density), lower coefficient of thermal expansion, and, in some cases, radar or sonartransparency. Tailorability is one of the biggest advantages of these materials. The matrix material can be selected from almost any metal, polymer, or ceramic. Micro-balloons are available in a variety of sizes and materials, including glass microspheres, cenospheres, carbon, and polymers. . ...
