About this book

This volume presents select papers presented at the 7th International Conference on Recent Advances in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Soil Dynamics. The papers discuss advances in the fields of soil dynamics and geotechnical earthquake engineering. Some of the themes include seismic risk assessment, engineering seismology, wave propagation, remote sensing applications for geohazards,engineering vibrations, etc. A strong emphasis is placed on connecting academic research and field practice, with many examples, case studies, best practices, and discussions on performance based design. This volume will be of interest to researchers and practicing engineers alike. 

About the authors

Prof. T.G. Sitharam is currently the Director of Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India. He is a KSIIDC Chair Professor in the area of Energy and Mechanical Sciences and Senior Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru (IISc). He was the founder Chairman of the Center for Infrastructure, Sustainable Transport and Urban Planning (CiSTUP) at IISc, and is presently the Chairman of the AICTE South Western Zonal Committee, Regional office at Bengaluru and President of the Indian Society for Earthquake Technology (ISET). Prof Sitharam is the founder President of the International Association for Coastal Reservoir Research (IACRR). He has been a  Visiting Professor at Yamaguchi University, Japan; University of Waterloo, Canada; University of Dolhousie, Halifax, Canada;  and ISM Dhanbad, Jharkhand, and was a Research Scientist  at the Center for Earth Sciences and Engineering,  University of Texas at Austin, Texas, USA until 1994.
Dr. Sreevalsa Kolathayar pursued M.Tech. from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and served as International Research Staff at UPC BarcelonaTech Spain. He is presently Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, National Institute of Technology, Karnataka. Dr. Kolathayar has authored three books and over 65 research papers. His broad research areas are geotechnical earthquake engineering, geosynthetics & geonaturals, and water geotechnics. He is currently the Secretary of the Indian chapter of International Association for Coastal Reservoir Research (IACRR), and Executive Committee Member of Indian Society of Earthquake Technology. In 2017, The New Indian Express honored Dr. Kolathayar with 40 under 40 - South India's Most Inspiring Young Teachers Award. He is the recipient of ISET DK Paul Research Award from Indian Society of Earthquake Technology, IIT Roorkee. He received "IEI Young Engineers Award" by The Institution of Engineers (India), in recognition of his contributions in the field of Civil Engineering.

Dr. Mukat Lal Sharma is a Professor at the Department of Earthquake Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee, India with over 35 years of experience in teaching, research and consultancy. Prof. Sharma has rendered expert advice to more than 500 engineering sites regarding seismic hazard and risk assessment. His long association with strong ground motion program of Department of Science and Technology has resulted in the development of Ground Motion Prediction Equations for Himalayas. He initiated the Earthquake Early Warning system approach for disaster mitigation and management in India. Based on his contributions towards disaster mitigation he was conferred with the A. S. Arya-IITR Disaster prevention award in 2012. He was president of Indian Society of Earthquake Technology, India during 2015-2019 and  Head, Department of Earthquake Engineering, IIT Roorkee  during 2012-2016.
