Amol Gokhale

Dr Gokhale has a Ph. D. in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh, where he studied the phenomena of solidification cracking during welding and casting, and related them to the mechanical behaviour of the alloys in the partially solidified state. Since joining the Defence Metallurgical Research Laboratory (DMRL) in 1985, Dr Gokhale has been involved with the development of light alloy cast and wrought products. Since 2004 he has been leading research projects on aluminium based foam for shock and sound absorption, and laser additive manufacturing of stainless steels and superalloys. Currently he heads the Solidification Technology Division and the Extractive Technology Division at DMRL. Dr Gokhale is a life member of the Indian Institute of Metals (and vice chairman of the Hyderabad chapter), Materials Research Society of India and the Institute of Indian Foundrymen, and a Light Alloys panel member of the Bureau of Indian Standards, Govt. of India. He was recently elected a Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering.
