Assistant Professor


Academic Degrees

  • Ph.D. - (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering) -- IIT-Hyderabad, Telangana, India
  • M.Tech -(Specialisation: Fluids and energy systems, Mechanical and Aerospace Eng.) -- IIT-Hyderabad, Telangana, India
  • B.Tech - (Mechanical Engineering) -- Birla Institute of Technology Pilani, Hyderabad campus


  • Dr. Saketha has 6 years of experience in the field of computational fluid dynamics. As a part of his PhD research, he has developed an in-house solver in C++. The main features of the solver are : It solves compressible Navier-Stokes equations and employs transition/turbulent models to simulate complex flows over bluff bodies.
  • Further, he has developed two efficient gradient methods that employ Gauss divergence theorem which improves the stability and accuracy of the proposed gradient scheme.
  • He has devised new transition hybrid RANS-LES models to simulate transitional flows around bluff bodies. and is also well-versed with Python and R languages.
  • Dr. Saketha is an Assistant Professor at INSOFE.
