Dr Satyam Sahay
Dr. Satyam Sahay - A Profile

Satyam Sahay is a senior scientist and leads the research activity on “Thermal Processing of Materials” at Tata Research Development & Design Centre (TRDDC), a research division of Tata Consultancy Services. This activity provides efficiency solutions using model based optimization methods and addresses all the important issues (e.g. energy consumption, productivity and environmental impact), for the industrial heat treatment. He has carried out several successful implementations of model- based process optimization techniques for industrial heat treatment operations, which has resulted in energy reduction and productivity enhancements. The estimated energy savings from these industrial implementations have exceeded over 10+ million KWh/year. His current research interest include, developing novel and efficient non-isothermal cyclic processing and reducing the environmental liability of industrial heat treatment operations.  

Satyam Sahay joined TRDDC in 1996 after graduating (PhD Metallurgical Engineering 1995) from University of Utah at Salt Lake City, USA. His earlier educations include BSc Metallurgical Engineering from BIT Sindri in 1990 and MTech Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from IIT Kanpur in 1992.

Satyam Sahay is a member of the Global R&D Committee of ASM-Heat Treating Society and is in the editorial boards of four international journals (Materials and Manufacturing Processes, Surface Engineering from IOM3 UK, ASM Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance and Journal of ASTM Intl.). He is an advisor to Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology, Bhubaneswar (CSIR Lab). He is the recipient of “2008 Metallurgist of the Year Award” and "2002 Young Metallurgist of the Year Award" by the Ministry of Steel, Government of India for “his significant contributions in implementing research concepts at several industrial operations leading to substantial quality and productivity improvement as also reduced energy consumption” and “Tata Group Promising Innovation award 2008” for the most successfully completed applied research on “novel and efficient non- isothermal cyclic processing” in the Tata Group. He has 6 patents, 40+ Journal publications and 65+ Conference presentations to his credit.
