Radhakrishna, M.

Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad, India

M. Radhakrishna is a chief scientist and head of the mechanical design and engineering group at CSIR. He has more than 25 years of experience in the mechanical design of process equipment, design and analysis of piping systems, detailed and project engineering of process plants, design audit of components conforming to ASME Division 2 requirements, and process safety management of chemical plants. His research interests include the dynamics of pipes and expansion bellows. He has also developed theoretical models that compute vibrations of pipes and bellows for different boundary conditions considering pressure, welding, temperature and velocity effects. Dr. Radhakrishna holds a PhD in mechanical engineering from Osmania University, an MS degree in mechanical engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University and a BS degree in mechanical engineering from Osmania University.

Experimental study of flow-induced pipe vibrations with guided end conditions

Sutar, S. M., Radhakrishna, M., Indian Institute of Chemical Technology; Babu, P. R., University College of Engineering, Osmania University

A study has been performed on the vibrations and stability of fluid-conveying pipes with guided ends. Guided ends are the most common type of pipe ends, as they enable the pipe to have free movement.
