About the authors

Dr Sanjay Kumar Shukla is an internationally recognized expert in the field of Civil (Geotechnical) Engineering. He is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Geosynthetics and Ground Engineering, published by Springer Nature, Switzerland. He is also the Founding Research Group Leader (Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering) at Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia. He holds the Distinguished Professorship in Civil Engineering at VIT University, Vellore, Chitkara University, Himachal Pradesh, VR Siddhartha Engineering College, Vijayawada, India, and Fiji National University, Suva, Fiji. He graduated in Civil Engineering from BIT Sindri, India, and earned his MTech in Civil Engineering (Engineering Geology) and PhD in Civil (Geotechnical) Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India. His primary areas of research interest include geosynthetics and fibres for sustainable developments, ground improvement techniques, utilization of wastes in construction, earth pressure and slope stability, environmental, mining and pavement geotechnics, and soil-structure interaction. He is an author/editor of 14 books, and more than 235 research papers, including 147 refereed journal papers. Shukla’s generalized expression for seismic active thrust (2015) and Shukla’s generalized expression for seismic passive resistance (2013) are routinely used by practicing engineers worldwide for designing the retaining structures. He has been honoured with several awards, including the most prestigious IGS Award 2018 by the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS), USA, in recognition of outstanding contribution to the development and use of geosynthetics during the 2014-2017 IGS award period. He is a fellow of Engineers Australia, Institution of Engineers (India) and Indian Geotechnical Society, and a member of American Society of Civil Engineers, International Geosynthetics Society and several other professional bodies. He is the Senior Editor of Cogent Engineering (Civil and Environmental Engineering), and serves on the editorial boards of more than 10 international journals, including ICE Ground Improvement, Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, and Journal of Mountain Science. 


Dr. Srinivasan Chandrasekaran is a Professor in the department of Ocean Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India. He has over 27 years of experience in teaching, research and industrial consultancy. His active research areas include dynamic analysis and design of offshore structures, development of new-generation compliant offshore platforms for ultra-deepwater oil and gas exploration, structural health monitoring of ocean structures, risk and reliability, fire resistant design of structures, use of Functionally Graded Materials (FGM) in marine risers, and Health, Safety & Environmental (HSE) management in process industries. He was a visiting fellow under the invitation of Ministry of Italian University Research (MiUR) to University of Naples Federico II for two years. He has authored about 160 research papers in peer-reviewed international journals and refereed conferences organized by professional societies around the world. 

Dr.BibhutiBhusan Das is currently serving as an Associate Professor at National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal. Before joining NITK, he served as Centre Head for National Institute of Construction Management and Research, Goa and Indore Campus. He has been working as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and Adjunct Faculty in the department of Civil Engineering at Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan, USA. His area of research focuses on sustainability of construction and building materials such as microstructure characterization of materials, non-destructive testing of concrete structures, corrosion of reinforcement and durability studies on concrete and sustainability in construction project management. He is an Associate Member of American Concrete Institute and is a part of the International Faculty Network Committee launched by ACI Education Foundation in 2009. He is an editorial board member and reviewer to several national and international journals. 

Dr.Sreevalsa Kolathayar pursued M.Tech from 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, Surathkal, India. Dr.Sreevalsa has authored three books and eight book chapters published by CRC Press, Springer and Elsevier. He published 28 journal papers and 30 conference papers. He is Editorial Board member of two International Journals and acted as a reviewer for many international journals. His research interests include Ground Motion Attenuation & Seismic Hazard Assessment, Local Site effects & Liquefaction Susceptibility, Pseudo-dynamic approach for Seismic Loading, Disaster Risk Reduction, Geogrids and Geocells, and Water geotechnics. He is currently the Secretary 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 honoredDr.Sreevalsa with Edex award: 40 under 40 - South India's Most Inspiring Young Teachers. He is the recipient of ISET DK Paul Research Award from Indian Society of Earthquake Technology, IIT Roorkee in 2018. Dr.Sreevalsa is in the roster of two technical committees of ASCE Geo-Institute. He received "IEI Young Engineers Award" by The Institution of Engineers (India), in recognition of his contributions in the field of Civil Engineering.
