About Conference

Reliability and safety play an important role right from conception, design and operation phases of any engineering systems and especially in critical applications such as nuclear power plants, security systems, aircraft systems, etc. Further, with the growing technological advancement and automation, it is appropriate to update and enhance the existing evaluation methodologies. Phenomenal progress has been made in this area to study, characterize, measure, and analyze the failure, repair, and reduce the consequences of failure thus improving the operational use by increasing their design life. Eliminating or reducing the likelihoods of failures thereby increasing available operating time lead to large scale reduction in downtime. The need for higher reliability and safety is emphasized due to some factors like increased product complexity; public awareness; cost of failure, damage and warranty; safety considerations with undesirable consequences. Reliability and safety engineering has wide applications in all conventional engineering fields. NCRS 2016 will provide the right platform for the scientists, researchers, academicians, scholars and students to present their work and interact with experts and professionals. The three day conference will also provide an opportunity to further the research in this important area of safety and reliability and bring synergic benefits to all.

About SSN

SSN College of Engineering (SSNCE) is the outcome of the vision and initiative of Padma Bhushan Dr. Shiv Nadar, Chairman of HCL Technologies Ltd. The institution was established in 1996 on Rajiv Gandhi Salai (OMR) of Chennai. The institution offers eight B.E., / B.Tech. Degree programmes and eleven M.E. / M.Tech. degree programmes in addition to MBA and MCA. The admission is done purely based on merit. The College is accredited by NBA and NAAC with 'A' Grade. 

SSN Institutions stands out as a premier center of higher learning with a mission of pursuing excellence in education and research. The institutions, with their diverse and dynamic community of students offer a distinctive combination of some of the finest graduate, undergraduate and research programs, accomplished faculty, world class facilities and a residential campus set on a sprawling 250 acres of sylvan surroundings.

SSN Institutions provide a variety of stimulating environments for intellectual development, free thinking, and personal growth, challenging its students with dynamic learning opportunities and equipping them with the skills, insights, attitudes and practical experiences that are necessary to take up responsibilities in the society.

While students at SSN immerse themselves in academics, the college has a lot in store for them outside the classroom. Student life includes participation in sports, recreational & co-curricular activities and culturals. In short, at SSN, students will find an academic and social environment where everyone- from faculty members to peers help shape their future. SSN is a home to aesthetically designed buildings with state of the-art computer and internet facilities, modern workshops, seminar halls, auditoriums and well stocked libraries, sports and games fields in addition to an indoor stadium with gymnasium.
As an exemplary institution of learning, SSN follows an admission policy that strongly favors merit, even as it enables access to education for students from all strata of society through appropriate scholarships. The Institution boasts of a strong alumni network with alumni events held every year serving as a platform for past students to give back to SSN and share their experiences with its present fellow students. With so much to offer, it is only natural that students of SSN get a unique opportunity to carve a niche for themselves in their chosen field of study that enables them to become well-rounded and discerning citizens, fully qualified for their chosen professions in the workplace.


Society for Reliability and Safety (SRESA), Mumbai was established in the year 2010 with an objective to promote and develop reliability and safety engineering sciences. The society delivers reliability and safety engineering courses and services for any kind of energy systems like nuclear and thermal power plants, research reactors, and other industrial plants like nuclear irradiators, reprocessing plants, conventional process and chemical industry.

The objectives of the Society inter-alia are the following: To promote and develop the Science of reliability and safety. To deliver reliability and safety engineering courses and or services for any kind of energy systems like nuclear and thermal power plants, research reactors, other industrial plants like nuclear irradiators, reprocessing plants, conventional process and chemical industry. To conduct a journal, books, reports and other information media, in order to publicize the activities of the Society, whether alone or in combination with other organizations and to disseminate information, knowledge and practice of ensuring quality services in the field of Reliability and Safety as a basis of service to the Nation and Individual. To aid in integration of several disciplines constituting reliability and safety engineering sciences. To encourage research in the area of reliability engineering, technology & allied fields. To encourage Scholarships, Grants and Awards useful in furthering the foregoing objectives. To hold meetings for the presentation and discussion of scientific and technical papers. To co-operate with government agencies, educational institutions and other organisations having the same or similar purpose; To engage in such other activities as may be appropriate for fulfilment of the objectives of the Society. To cater to the need of ageing studies and remaining life assessment and diagnosis in a scientific and technical manner. To promote the research in the area of installation safety & security towards formulating the tools and methods for assessment of design basis threats and mitigation systems. To evolve a unified standard code of practice in safety and reliability engineering for assurance of quality based professional engineering services.
