In 1996, he received his Ph.D. in Reliability Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, Mumbai, following which he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute, South Korea, and a Visiting Professor at the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the University of Maryland, USA. Professor Varde is also a consultant/specialist/Indian expert for many international organizations, including OECD/NEA (WGRISK), Paris; International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna; University of Maryland, USA; Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute, South Korea. Based on his R & D work, he has published over 200 publications in journals and conferences, including 11 conference proceedings books.
Prof. Raghu V. Prakash is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) where he specializes in new product design and the assessment of structural integrity and remaining life prediction of critical components used in transportation and energy sectors. He has more than twenty five years of professional experience in the field of fatigue and fracture and has published more than 100 scientific articles in books and journals, more than 100 conference publications and has edited 4 book volumes. He has developed test systems for use in academia, R&D and industry during his tenure as Technical Director at BiSS Research, Bangalore; at IIT Madras, he teaches courses relating to Fracture Mechanics, Design with Advanced Materials, Product Design, DFMA. He is a voting rights member of ASTM International (Technical Committees, D-30, E-08 and E-28), current Chair of the Materials Processing Technical Committee of the Materials Division of ASME, Chair of Technical committee (Mechanical, Aerospace) of InSIS and Chair of the Chennai Chapter of Society for Failure Analysis. He serves in the Editorial boards of Journal of Structural Longevity, Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale (IGF Journal of Fracture and Structural Integrity), Journal of Life Cycle Reliability and Safety Engineering. Prof Prakash received his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from College of Engineering, Guindy, Madras (now Chennai); Master’s degree (by Research) and Ph.D. from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore. He is a member of several technical societies (including the Indian Structural Integrity Society, Society for Failure Analysis and Indian Institute of Metals) and has won several prestigious awards (Binani Gold Medal of the Indian Institute of Metals), scholarships and Erasmus-Mundus Fellowships. He is the recipient of Distinguished Fellow of the International Conference on Computational and Experimental Engineering and Sciences (ICCES) 2015.
Dr Gopika Vinod is a faculty member and the Head of the Probabilistic Safety Section in Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India. She received her PhD in Reliability Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, after which she has worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Steinbies Advanced Risk Technologies, Germany and as a visiting scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
