About this book

This book presents selected papers from the International Symposium on Geotechnics for Transportation Infrastructure (ISGTI 2018). The research papers cover geotechnical interventions for the diverse fields of policy formulation, design, implementation, operation and management of the different modes of travel, namely road, air, rail and waterways. This book will be of interest to academic and industry researchers working in transportation geotechnics, as also to practicing engineers, policy makers, and civil agencies.

Mr. Ravi Sundaram did his B. Tech (1978) and M. Tech (1980) from IIT Delhi. He started his career with McClelland Suhaimi Ltd. at Saudi Arabia and Qatar. He has 38 years experience as practicing geotechnical engineer and is a founder director of Cengrs Geotechnica Pvt. Ltd. His expertise includes geotechnical investigations, geophysical surveys, ground improvement and bored piles. He has worked on problems of collapsible soils, soft clays, expansive soils, weak rocks, artesian conditions, liquefiable soils, etc. His interests include foundations for bridges, high rise buildings, large-diameter tanks, power plants, etc. He has published over 60 technical papers that reflect his experience in geotechnical engineering practice. He was awarded the IGS Delhi Chapter Lifetime Achievement Award for the year 2014-2015. He delivered the prestigious Sixth Madhav Lecture in October 2017. He received Indian Geotechnical Society's IGS-Prof. Dinesh Mohan Memorial Award for Excellence in Professional Practice for the years 2016-17.

Dr. Jagdish Telangrao Shahu graduated in 1986 from Nagpur University, India and obtained his M.Tech. and Ph.D. degrees from IIT Kanpur, India in 1988 and 1994, respectively. He did his post doctoral research at Institute of Lowland Technology, Japan from 1996-99 and again visited Japan in 2006-2007 as Visiting Professor. Dr. Shahu joined IIT Delhi in 2002 as Assistant Professor. Since 2012, he is Professor at IIT Delhi.  His main research interests are geotechnology for roads and railway tracks, ground improvement and geosynthetic applications. He has more than 50 papers in journals. He has also co-edited four book volumes. He has guided 50 M.Tech. and 9 Ph.D. theses.
