Assistant Professor, University of New Orleans, New Orleans






Computational mechanics, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, and additive manufacturing.


We are working on the CFD analysis of Ti-6Al-4V melt pool in powder-bed electron beam additive manufacturing to characterize the process parameters associated with it including the melt pool geometry, beam power, beam speed, beam diameter, and temperature profile along the melt scan.


Dr. Chakravarty received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 1999, an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Tuskegee University in 2003, another M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005, and his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2008.


Dr. Chakravarty actively conducts research in the areas of solid mechanics, composite structures, vibrations and control, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, fluid-structure interaction, additive manufacturing, and small-scaled unmanned aerial systems. His research has been published in the ASME Journal of Applied Mechanics, ASME Journal of Vibration and Acoustics, Journal of Aircraft, Journal of Intelligent Materials Systems and Structures, Mechanics Research Communications, International Journal of Micro Air Vehicles, Composite Structures, Composites Part B: Engineering, Composite Structures, Materials Science and Engineering A, and Acta Materialia. He has also published several peer-reviewed conference papers, and presented in many national and international conferences.
