Hyderabad: The PhD thesis of a researcher from the University of Hyderabad (UoH) has been selected for the innovative student project award 2020 by the Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE).

The thesis of Dr. Jhansi Jadav from the school of engineering sciences and technology, UoH, is titled "Assessment of precipitation, deformation and fracture behavior of Superni 263 Ni base superalloy under tensile and low cycle fatigue conditions".

Dr. Jhansi was presented with this award during the virtual annual convention organised by INAE. The results that are part of this investigation have direct relevance for the development of advanced ultra-supercritical (AUSC) power plant materials and high-temperature turbine materials that the country is putting efforts towards achieving self-reliance and Aatmanirbhar Bharat. Till now, the designers were lacking key input data such as elevated temperature fatigue characteristics on Superni 263 alloy and this thesis is a key engineering contribution that fills this gap.

Dr. Jhansi's work was carried out under the supervision of Prof. Koteswararao V. Rajulapati (SEST) and Dr. N. Eswara Prasad (director, DMSRDE, DRDO).

Dr. Jhansi completed BTech (metallurgical engineering) from JNTU, Hyderabad, and MTech (metallurgical engineering) from IIT, Roorkee. Subsequently, she was offered a faculty position in Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Technology (MGIT), Hyderabad. She has pursued PhD while working as a faculty member at MGIT.
