Founded in 2015 as a new society, Indian Structural Integrity Society, InSIS, aims to develop and extend knowledge in all aspects of Structural Integrity and disseminate that knowledge world-wide with the goal of improving the safety and performance of engineering equipment, components, and structures. Specifically, it aims to foster research and collaboration, facilitate education, develop new test methods, improve engineering designs and manufacturing practices, and improve maintenance and inspection procedures for prevention of failure of engineering materials, components, and structures.

Defence Metallurgical Research Laboratory (DMRL) was established at Hyderabad in 1963 to produce complex metals and materials needed by the Indian Defence Industry. Over the years, the laboratory has acquired a special status as a premier centre for R&D in metals, alloys, ceramics and composites. Since its inception, the laboratory has developed and established a number of frontline technologies in the area of metallurgy and materials science. An infrastructure of advanced experimental facilities has evolved over decades. The developments at DMRL have led to the creation of new technology and production centres in the country.
