Dr. Arunjyoti Sarkar is graduated in Civil Engineering and specialized in the field of Offshore Structures. His works primarily include Structural Dynamics and Wave Structure interaction problems which are related to the offshore oil & gas and renewable energy industry. Before joining the IIT Kharagpur, he was working with a subsea installation contractor as a Principal Engineer.
One of his major research contributions is the development of the mathematical model of a novel tuned liquid column damper and its experimental verification.
Another major contribution is the development of a cost effective installation technique for an offshore wind turbine and showing its technical feasibility through numerical studies.
One of his on-going researches is the study on the hydrodynamic performance of hydrofoils with modified geometries. The purpose of this study is to improve the performances of water current turbines working under varying current speed.
Another area of current research is the development of a suitable bottom supported structure for an offshore wind turbine for the intermediate water depths.
He is also engaged in developing a drag based vertical axis current turbine for the river current application.
