Material and Structural Evaluation Group

Material and Structural Evaluation Group is Equipped with state –of-the test facility in the area of Destructive and Non destructive testing.

The Group has a long record of service to different Industries throughout the Country including Blue Chip Public Sector Organization (viz NTPC, IOC,DVC, Coal India etc)

Section Activities: 

The NABL accredited facilities of the group in the domain of Mechanical and Fatigue Testing is among the few laboratories in the country.

The Group is formed to provide continuous support to different Power, Steel and Petrochemical Industries to access the condition and stability of structures and equipment bases. The Scientists and Technical officers of the group have the expertise in residual life assessment of structures, Finite element modeling and stress analysis, fatigue testing, analysis of engineering components and industrial structures by use of sophisticated scientific instruments and software.
