GEOENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING

 

Research Topics

• Analysis of laterally loaded piles in layered soil

• Study on local materials for construction of landfill liners and covers.

• MICP technique for improving engineering properties of soils.

• Contaminant transport modelling for landfill liners

 

The following are the research areas identified:

Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering:

  • Seismic design attempts to design safe structures that meet multiple safety definitions. Current practice stops at demand estimation, analysis and design and consequently cannot guarantee that the designed structure meets the objectives set at the start.
  • Performance based design attempts to quantitatively define performance objectives, define methods to calculate actual capacity of a designed structure and iteratively improve the design until the structure meets all design objectives.
  • Current research is focused on methods of capacity estimation, quantification of damage and establishing simplified methods for capacity estimation that are close to the actual capacity.

 

New Generation Concrete

  • Geo polymer Concrete: Research is focus on finding alternative ingredient in concrete to replace ordinary Portland cement as that to cement and able to minimize the disadvantages of cement use.
  • Alternate concrete ingredients: Research is focused to explore an alternative material providing similar properties as that of concrete ingredients. Identified materials are M sand and GBS to replace Fine aggregates & Coarse aggregates.
  • Retrofitting of concrete structure: As many older buildings are demolished as one of the structural members are deemed structurally weak. This research is exploring the various methods of strengthening the structural members so as to increase the working life of the building.
