About this book

The book comprises selected proceedings of the 2016 annual conference of the Indian Geotechnical Society. The technical papers presented on the theme “Geotechnical Characterisation and Geoenvironmental Engineering” highlight the modified geotechnical properties of soil admixed industrial waste and also the characteristics of soil with different pore fluid under varying test conditions. The major topics covered are (i) characterisation of soils, rocks and synthesised materials and (ii) geoenvironmental engineering and behaviour of unsaturated soil. This book will prove a valuable reference for researchers and practicing engineers alike.

About the authors

Dr. V. K. Stalin is a professor at the Department of Civil Engineering, CEG at Anna University. He obtained his bachelor’s in civil engineering and master’s in soil mechanics and foundation engineering from Annamalai University in 1987 and 1989 respectively. He subsequently obtained his PhD in the field of soil mechanics and foundation engineering from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 1995. Dr Stalin has teaching and research experience of 22 years at Anna University. He has published over 110 papers in national and international journals, and at conferences and seminars.

He also serves as a consultant on various challenging field problems such as pavement failures, railway embankments, monitoring land reclamation, modification of soil and recommendation of foundations as well as soil testing for various private and government organisations. He was an executive committee member of the Chennai chapter of the Indian Geotechnical Society and is currently the chairman of the same chapter.

 Dr. M. Muttharam is a professor at the Department of Civil Engineering, CEG at Anna University. She obtained her bachelor’s in civil engineering from Madras University in 1992 and her master’s from Anna University in the field of hydrology and water resources engineering in 1995. She subsequently obtained her doctoral degree in the field of soil mechanics and foundation engineering from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in 2001.

She pursued postdoctoral research at Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble, France from 2002 to 2003, which was funded by French Higher Education Ministry and has worked as a CSIR research associate for about 3 years. She started her academic career as a lecturer at CEG, Anna University in 2003 and was promoted to associate professor in 2006 and then professor in 2014.

She has published more than 40 papers in national and international journals and at conferences. She also served as the secretary of the Chennai chapter of the Indian Geotechnical Society for 5 years and is currently an executive committee member of the same chapter.
