About this book

This book comprises the proceedings of the 1st International Symposium on Construction Resources for Environmentally Sustainable Technologies. The contents of this volume focus on issues related to natural and man-made disasters, and discuss solutions through the use of alternative resources, towards building a sustainable and resilient society from geotechnical perspectives. Some of the themes covered include recycled materials in geotechnical constructions, management and utilization of disaster wastes, climate change independent natural disasters, socio-economic and environmental aspects in sustainable construction, physical and numerical modelling of disaster mitigation techniques, etc. This book will be beneficial to researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers alike. 

About the authors

Hemanta Hazarika is currently a Professor at the Graduate School of Engineering and Department of Interdisciplinary Science and Innovation, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan. His research activities include disaster prevention and mitigation, stability of soil-structures during earthquakes and tsunami, ground improvement, application of recycled waste and lightweight materials in constructions, and landslides and their mitigations. He has published over 350 technical papers in various international journals, conferences, workshops and symposia. He has also authored two textbooks on Soil Mechanics and their Japanese versions. In addition, he also served as the editor of three technical books on disaster mitigation and waste tire recycling. Prof. Hazarika pioneered the use of waste tire derived recycled materials for earthquake protection of infrastructures and holds two patents on those. Prof. Hazarika has several years of experience in teaching, research as well as geotechnical practice and consulting both within and outside Japan. He has also successfully led a World Bank project on “Improving the Resilience of Nepal’s Strategic Roads Network”.

Gopal Madabhushi is a Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Cambridge, UK and the Director of the Schofield Centre. His expertise extends from dynamic centrifuge modelling to the time domain finite element analyses of earthquake engineering problems. He has an active interest in the areas of soil liquefaction, soil-structure interaction and liquefaction resistant measures and their performances. His research interests also include the biomechanics of hip replacement surgeries. He has acted as an expert consultant to the industry on many geotechnical and earthquake engineering problems. He has 150+ Journal Publications and 270+ papers in International conferences and workshops to date.

Kazuya Yasuhara is an Emeritus Professor at Ibaraki University, Japan. After retiring from Ibaraki University in 2010, Prof. Yasuhara was the International Project Coordinator at the Institute of Global Change Adaptation Science (ICAS) from 2010 to 2019. Since 2019, he has been working as a specially appointed researcher at Global and Local Environment Co-creation Institute (GLEC) of Ibaraki University, as well as Professor Emeritus. He has also been teaching Climate Change Risk Management in the Master Course of Climate Change and Development in Vietnam-Japan University (VJU), Hanoi, Vietnam, since retirement. His research interests are climate change-induced compound geo-disasters in Asia-Pacific regions and their adaptation, earthquake-induced deformation, and instability of infrastructures on fine-grained soils including the countermeasures against damage. He also served as a Review Editor (Chapter 29 and Technical Summary) for IPCC AR 5 from 2010 to 2014. 

Dennes Bergado is an Emeritus Professor at Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand. His research areas include probabilistic and reliability analyses of geotechnical properties and structures as well as ground Improvement and geosynthetics. He established the Asian Center for Soil Improvement and Geosynthetics (ACSIG) Research Center including the first geosynthetics research laboratory in Thailand. He has pioneered the use of prefabricated vertical drain (PVD) for ground improvement in soft Bangkok clay with subsequent combinations of vacuum and heat preloading. Prof. Bergado published 2 Books, 7 Chapters in Books, 22 Edited Books, 5 Guest Editorships of Journals, 156 Journal Articles, 310 Conference/Invited Papers, 73 Invited/Keynote Lectures. Currently, he has been involved in multiple infrastructure projects in Bangkok, Thailand and Laos PDR funded by ADB, EIB and World Bank as a Geotechnical Specialist.
