These equipments helped the laboratory to function in a better way in the area of material characterization.

In the December of 1986 Prof. Rajendra Kumar became the new director of the Regional Research Laboratory in Bhopal. During this period the laboratory specialized in research related to the different sectors of material characterization. Some of these areas are life assessment, corrosion, surface engineering and mechanical testing.

In the year of 1989 the office of the Director of this research institute of Bhopal was taken over by Prof T. C. Rao, an expert in the field of Mineral Processing. Research in new areas such as Water Resource Modeling & Design and Environment Modeling & Impact Studies were started here.
