Profile of Advanced Materials And Process Research Institute

Advanced Materials and Processes Research Institute, Bhopal was instituted in May 1981 and officially started functioning from Delhi . Dr. PK Rohatgi, the founder Director of the Laboratory is an eminent metallurgist with specialization in Metal Matrix Composition. He formally moved to the present premises at Bhopal in December 1983 along with a small group. To begin with, the laboratory had about 15 scientists, with 10 of them specialized in Metallurgy/Materials science. The laboratory essentially focused on Aluminum-graphite metal matrix composites, natural fiber based composites and material characterization. The laboratory had gradually established an equipment base with a scanning Electron Microscope, Optical microscopes, X-Ray diffraction equipment, Instran (mechanical testing), Image Analyzer all of which meant for Material Characterization. In December 1986, Dr. Rajendra Kumar, a metallurgist by profession, became the Director. The laboratory was strengthened in various material characterization areas such as mechanical testing, corrosion, surface engineering and life assessment. It was during this period (March 1987), there was a consideration to close the laboratory by Shri Abid Hussain Committee but later the idea was dropped with a directive that RRL, Bhopal should address SandT potential of Madhya Pradesh. In September 1989, Prof. TC Rao, a well-known Mineral Processing expert, took over. The scope of the laboratory broadened to include Mineral Processing and equipment design, Environment modeling and Impact studies, Water Resource Modeling and Design. Also the building materials research at RRL Bhopal grew substantially to the extent the Material Research Society designated RRL Bhopal as the Chapter for Building Materials. Through its activities on water resource modeling and design, surface treated agricultural implements, handicrafts using sisal fiber; fly ash for agricultural soil enhancement etc., RRL Bhopal became visible as promising laboratory for rural technologies as well. To top it, a prestigious UNDP-GOI-DST project costing Rs 10 crores for establishing a model for Rural Technology dissemination was assigned to RRL Bhopal, which was completed successfully in 2004. In June 2001, Dr. N. Ramakrishnan, a metallurgist moved in as the Director, In September 2001, a presentation was made to the performance Appraisal Board (a high power committee set up by CSIR for assessing the laboratory activities) and the board strongly felt that the laboratory should carve out a niche focusing on specifically chosen programmes. As a first step, in order to consolidate the available resources, the laboratory was structured suitably into materials and modeling divisions consisting complementing groups. While the expert groups are maturing gradually in their respective areas project teams are being shaped optimally combining resources from different groups, the group system takes care of the management of personal as well as equipment and the project teams manage project activities along with the finances This restructuring fetched us the ISO-9001:2000 certification for MATERIAL and MODELLING .In addition to picking up external projects for material and product developments from external agencies such as DRDO, DOM, BRNS etc. related to materials and processes, the laboratory is presently participating in 14 CSIR Network projects too majority of them pertaining to material, minerals processes and resources. The private sponsors include Reliance and Generals Motors.
