International Conference on Emerging Trends In Mechanical Engineering – ICETME’15
The 2nd International Conference on “Emerging Trends in Mechanical Engineering” (ICETME ’15) was held on the serene campus of Toc H Institute of Science & Technology (TIST), Cochin during 3 -5th September, 2015 in association with National Institute of Technology, Surathkal (NITK). The 41 scientific participants had many fruitful discussions and exchanges that contributed to the success of the conference. Participants from 3 countries made the conference truly international in scope. The papers that were presented on the first two days formed the heart of the conference and provided ample opportunity for discussion. The papers were split almost equally between the five main conference verticals, i.e., Aerospace Engineering, Manufacturing Technology, Material Science, Thermal Engineering, and Design Engineering.
All the 41 presented papers are included in this ISBN numbered proceedings volume. There were 5 keynote lectures covering the different areas of the conference: Dr. Shuichi Torrii (Kumamoto University) from Japan talked on production and transfer technologies for global warming suppression. Dr. Ruwan Gopura (Moratuwa University) from Srilanka on development of novel mechanisms for upper-limb prostheses, Dr. C. Lakshmana Rao (Indian Institute of Technology), Madras on energy absorption of crash tubes and bumper system using high strength aluminum alloys. Other Keynote lectures were from R. Ramesh Kumar (Government Engineering College, Barton Hill), Dr. K. Sudarshnan (Scientist, DRDO(NPOL)) and Job Kurian (Advisor IIT Palakkad).
