  • Education

    Ph.D. (M.E.), 1982, University of Manitoba M. Tech., 1975, University of Manitoba B.E., 1973, Poona University


  • Courses Taught

    Nonlinear vibroimpact systems Vibration control using impact dampers Monitoring of mechanical systems using vibrations chaotic motion  

  • Research Interests

    Prof. Bapat's research has involved collaborations with other investigators from the University of Manitoba, Concordia University and Stevens Institute. He has investigated nonlinear vibrating systems with collisions with rigid and elastic members. He has developed exact closed form solutions for systems governed by 2-D wave equation and transverse vibration of beams. He has extensively studied impact dampers, impact pairs and impact oscillator.
