Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Pratiher’s Research Group.


Understanding dynamic characteristics and associated vibrations is highly inevitable in order to design and developing the engineering devices largely relied on smaller, cheaper, ergonomic, reliable designs that are easy to use. Unfortunately, most of the mechanical systems along with civil and aerospace structures become lighter, more flexible and faster that inherently include more or less non-linearity in their dynamics. Study the stability of such nonlinear engineering systems that exhibit the dynamics which are inherently nonlinear is inevitably essential to ensure the safety and reliability in running conditions.



             Here we primarily develop accurate dynamic models to a broad range engineering systems starting from nano-micro systems (Sensors, actuators, devices) to macro-scale systems towards heady industrial structures, then apply advance advanced computation and measurement techniques to analysis the vibration characteristics and related nonlinear phenomena. This research group is within the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India.
