Report by Nishapati Nayak; Sunabeda: Society for failure analysis (SFA),koraput has organised a national seminar in “failure analysis and advances in welding technology for aero-engine at training and development institute auditorium hall of Hindustan aeronautics limited(HAL),koraput division.
Today 15th September 2017 incidentally engineer’s day of our country.Around 100 deligates from IIT,S,NIIT,S,DRDO,CSIR,MEDHANI,BHEL,IAFand HAL are participating in this seminar.This seminar comprises of two sessions covering seven lecturers from experts of our country.This seminar will help the aero engine manufacturers to improve productivity and refurbishing of old components of our existing fleet.This will also provide a platform to academician and researchers to continue the research in advanced technology used for manufacturing aero-engine components.
The said programme was witnessedby srik.jaypal,CE, airworthiness,CEMILAC,sri.D.k. mohanty,ed,Nalco,sri.Debasis Deb,ED,HAL,capt.sriv.anil kumar,c.o,afle,koraput,sri.s.k.jha,scientist-f,sect.SFA,(india),dr.benudharsahu,regional director,rcma,koraput,sect.SFA,local chapter.
