IIT Madras professor gets great distinguished fellowship

IIT Madras professor R.I. Sujith has become the first Indian to be awarded the Distinguished Fellowship of International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV). The fellowship is awarded to individuals with distinguished careers in acoustics or vibration.

It is interesting to note that IIT Madras professor is an alumnus of IIT Madras and is currently the D. Srinivasan Chair Professor at Department of Aerospace Engineering, IIT Madras.

IIT Madras ProfessorIIAV works to advance the science of acoustics and vibration by creating an international scientific society that is responsive to the needs of scientists and engineers in all countries.

It cooperates with scientific societies and with other international organizations to increase information exchange. IIT Madras professor works on both experiments and modelling.

Some of the key research interests of IIT Madras Professor R.I. Sujith with a major impact in the filed include:

Ø Thermoacoustic instability in practical gas turbine engines and rockets

Also read ‘IIT Madras fosters great collaboration with three great organizations for a great work’

Ø Application of dynamical systems theory and complex systems theory to thermoacoustic instability

Ø Obtaining early warning (precursors) for the onset of thermoacoustic instability

Ø Smart control strategies using complex systems theory
