Dr.S. K. Jha is a Metallurgical Engineering graduate from NIT Jamshedpur in the year 1988. He then joined the 32nd batch of BARC training school following which due to his interest in the production area he opted to join NFC, Hyderabad and was posted in extrusion and piercing plant (EPP).
At NFC, under his leadership, for the first time simulation and modeling of “difficult to hot work” Inconel 718, Titanium full alloy, PT-7M, PT-3B Inconel 690, Incoloy 800 were carried out successfully. He was also instrumental in producing Titanium half alloy and full alloy tube in different sizes for Light Combat Aircraft and PSLV application, Simulation and modeling of two dissimilar metals for superconductor applications which is being used for development of fusion technology, Alloy 617 and SS 30HCu for advanced ultra supercritical boiler and optimizing the radial forging process and extrusion process parameters for production of pressure tube for 700 MWe PHWRS. His contributions in development of Superni42 in hot working and heat treatment are noteworthy and He has also contributed in development of seamless tube making technology Nb based alloys, shape memory alloys.
He has also received many awards and recognition for all his efforts at NFC. The most notable amongst them being, award for Excellence in Science technology for the year 2006 from Department of Atomic Energy. He has also received Group award from DAE five times for development of modified route for pressure tube, Development of Niobium alloys, Revamping of extrusion press, extrusion of ODS steel for FBRs application. Steam generator tubes for 700 MWe PHWRs. He is also a Life member of Indian institute of Metals and Indian Nuclear Society. He has also published 35 articles in international journals. He has completed the lead auditor course of ISO and is now currently pursuing his PhD from HBNI.
