Shamasundar, Promoter and MD of ProSIM R&D Pvt Ltd., is evangelising usage of computer simulation technologies to design, validate, optimise products and processes for over 3 decades.
Shamasundar has been involved in development of non-linear finite element analysis methods for large deformation (forging, extrusion, rolling, etc.
Shamasundar has Ph.D from Indian Institute of Science in Mechanical Engineering.
He has worked as :
Shamasundar has been invited to deliver lectures in various professional forum including ASME, SAE, ASM, SME, EuroForge, IMTMA (Indian Machine tool manufacturers’ association), IIF (Institute of Indian Foundrymen), CII (Confederation of Indian Industry), FICCI (Federation of Indian chamber of commerce and industry) and so on.
He has published more than 45 papers in computational modelling. He is recipient of KSCST award, and Japan Society for Technology of Plasticity (JSTP) award for young scientists.
At ProSIM, Shamasundar has created a centre for excellence in multi-disciplinary and multi-physics simulation environments, to study the interaction of Design-Materials-Manufacturing-Performance in an integrated manner. A dedicated leadership team is developed within ProSIM.
Shamasundar has delivered complex engineering projects for customers in India, Japan, USA, Europe, Gulf.
Dr Shamasundar has created expert interdisciplinary teams for structural integrity assessment of energy assets; for seismic qualification (using finite element analysis -FEA), for remaining life assessment and extension (RLA/RLE), fitness for service (FFS) and engineering critical analysis (ECA). He has led several indigenization / localization projects for Indian defense sectors.
Shamasundar is the president of board of governors of RGIPT, an institution of national importance under Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas (MoPNG), Government of India. He is on the board of IIT Dharwad. He is associated with several universities and academic institutions.
His current interests are in energy transition, application of digitalization in energy sector, sustainability, and green energy.
