Dr. Niloy Khutia is presently working as Associate Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Applied Mechanics,Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur, Howrah, West Bengal, India. He had joined the Institute in 2006. Previously, Dr. Khutia had worked as Senior Engineer, FEA at Cummins Research & Technology India Ltd. (CRTI), Pune, India, an Automobile Engine Manufacturer (R&D Centre) from 2004 to 2006 and also as Deputy Manager,CAE in Mahindra Engineering Services (MES), an Engineering Service in Design and R&D at Mumbai,India from 2003 to 2004. He had also worked as Deputy Manager, Hydraulic Design, R&D at Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. Farm Equipment Sector, Mumbai from 2000 to 2003. Since the inception of new Under Graduate course in Aerospace Engineering at the Department in 2010, Dr. Khutia had been actively engaged in the development of new courses and Laboratories in this Engineering discipline.
The research areas of Dr. Khutia includes plasticity,fatigue and fracture,constitutive modelling of materials in micro and macroscales in Aerospace, Mechanical, Civil Engineering and also in Bio-material applications. The major thrust area of research work of Dr. Khutia is towards development of a robust, unified simulation model to determine cyclic plastic deformation characteristics i.e. Low Cycle Fatigue, Ratcheting characteristics and damage of the materials used in Indian nuclear power plant for Primary Heat Transport Piping application under various proportional and nonproportional loadings. These models are used for assessment of safety and prediction of the life of these structures along with experimental validation. Dr. Khutia has developed microscale model for finite element simulation of prothesis in biomedical applications to predict mechanical strength, bone remodelling characteristics of implant manufactured through additive manufacturing techniques. The research group of Dr. Khutia has been working towards enhancement of mechanical strength of additively manufactured materials as aerostructure materials for aircraft and space applications through experiments and numerical simulation by Multiscale Modelling using Crystal Plasticity Finite Element Method. His research group has been working on fabrication and modelling of CNT reinforced nanocomposite for the application in aircraft structure. One scholar of Dr. Khutia has completed his Ph.D. and he is currently the supervisor of five ongoing Ph.D. scholars. He has also supervised 10 Post Graduate thesis. Dr. Khutia has published 30 international journals and conference papers.
