In the global competitive customer-centric scenario, the field of mechanical engineering is advancing at a rapid pace and new technologies are emerging in the areas of thermal, automobile, manufacturing, design and development, and manufacturing management. The challenges faced by today’s engineers are forcing them to keep abreast of the emerging trends through continuous research and development. ERA 2009 is intended to provide a common platform to bring together researchers, engineers, scientists, and scholars to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Mechanical Engineering, and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted. The conference will include keynote addresses by eminent people in the field of Mechanical Engineering and technical papers presentation.
