The Institution of Engineers (India)

Logo Institution of Engineers
The Institution of Engineers (India) is the largest professional body of Engineers established in 1920 and was granted the Royal Charter in 1935. IEI encompasses 15 Engineering Disciplines and one Interdisciplinary Division. It is worthy to mention that the Institution had accredited the course curriculum of IIT Kharagpur, the first IIT established in India. It also has the distinction of producing the maximum number of engineers in the core engineering disciplines, thus augmenting the nation building efforts. The Institution has a national presence of over 100 State and Local Centres in India and further extended its services to the International Community with five Overseas Chapters around the world. It has the full Membership of World Federation of Engineering Organization, Federation of Engineering Institution of South and Central Asia, Federation of Engineering Institution of South and the Pacific, Commonwealth Engineers Council, Federation of International du Beton and World Mining Congress. In a landmark achievement, the Institution obtained full Membership of the Engineers Mobility Forum for India at the Biennial International Engineers Meeting held at Kyoto, Japan in the year 2009.

    Series-A publishes research findings and opinions of various scientists and engineers related to the field of Civil, Architectural, Environmental and Agricultural. It covers different kinds of technological researches on the latest developmental domain of highly specialized fields like, earthquake engineering, geo-technical engineering, ocean engineering, structural engineering, traffic & highway engineering, industrial waste treatment, climate change, environmental pollutions, irrigation, water management, soil conservation practices, farm power & machineries, dairy & food engineering, post-harvest technology, and so on. It also serves the researchers and practitioners for performing a variety of analyses in the arena of green buildings, Energy Efficient Buildings, pollution related measures, food security and many more. The academicians and professionals have made efforts to find out the probable solutions to the issues as derived from natural, geographical, socio-economical and cultural conditions of the globe. Their achievements have contributed a lot to the evolution of research findings. Especially, the achievements in structural engineering have contributed to the world by developing technologies to ensure safety of buildings in earthquake-prone zones. This journal aims to contribute to resolve or mitigate the global as well as national problems by bringing together the new ideas, achievements and developments being taking place in this field. The editors welcome good quality contributions from all over the world. This Series covers the following areas:

    ·         Construction Planning & Management, Earthquake Engineering
