About this book

This book comprises select peer-reviewed proceedings of the International Conference Trending Moments and Steer Forces – Civil Engineering Today (TMSF 2019). It presents latest research in different domains of civil engineering like structural and concrete engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, environmental engineering, and construction technology and management. The contents also include miscellaneous applications of civil engineering in a wide range of technical and societal problems making use of engineering principles and relational data structures involving measurement sciences. Given the range of topics covered, this book can be useful for students, researchers as well as practitioners working in the field of civil engineering. 


About the authors

Dr. Biibhuti Bhusan Das is currently serving as an Associate Professor at National Institute of Technology, Karnataka, Surathkal, India. His research interests include design and development of sustainable construction and building materials, microstructure and durability of concrete, construction planning and practices. Dr. Das has handled a number of research projects sponsored from Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India; Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng), UK; Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Limited (KIOCL); Mangalore Refinery and Petro Chemicals Limited (MRPL). The fund generation and research contributions have led to the development of Sustainable Construction and Building Materials Laboratory at NITK Surathkal, a specialized lab that practices the theme of sustainability. He has published over 100 papers in Journals and conferences, and has given several key-note presentations across the world. He has guided four doctoral students and more than sixty master’s thesis. Currently, he has eight students who are doing their doctoral thesis and around fifteen students having their master’s degree. He has been serving as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate from Centre for Innovative Materials Research (CIMR), Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michaigan, USA and has obtained Doctorate of Philosophy from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, India. He is a Master’s degree holder in Construction Engineering and Management from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, India. He has won a number of awards one of the prestigious being the Outstanding Reviewer award from Construction and Building Materials Journal, Elsevier. He has edited number of books entitled Sustainable Construction and Building Materials-Select Proceedings of ICSCBM 2018, Recent Developments in Sustainable Infrastructure-Select Proceedings of ICRDSI 2019, Smart Technologies for Sustainable Development-Select Proceedings of SMTS 2019 and also guest edited the June-2019 edition of the Indian Concrete Journal and is on the editorial panel of some of the reputed Construction Engineering and Material journals.

Dr. Sreejith V. Nanukuttan is currently a senior lecturer in the School of Natural and Built Environment, Queen’s University Belfast. He graduated from Queen’s University Belfast with a PhD in civil engineering in 2007 on development of a non-destructive test for concrete in chloride environments. In 2008, he joined the School of Natural and Built Environment as a lecturer and was instrumental in developing MSc in durability of structures and course on whole life management of structures. In 2013-14 he took Royal Academy supported industrial secondment with Roads Service Northern Ireland where he was responsible for structural assessment and subsequent rehabilitation of two transport bridges, projects of over £2m. The in-situ test he developed through his PhD for assessing chloride transport through concrete and the instrument is commercialized through Amphora Non-Destructive Ltd., His recently completed EPSRC funded project developed retrofit decision tool for converging energy efficiency measures, this simplified coding is licensed to Energenius for integration with their smart energy management system for social landlords. Through his research he maintains a balance between material technology, building performance and structural efficiency and to date has managed research income of over £1.9m. He has supervised 4 complete PhDs, 6 PDRAs and 2 RAs. He is the immediate past president of Civil Engineering Research Association of Ireland and is a member of RILEM technical committees 230-PSC, 247-DTA and newly formed CIM. He has authored over 75 technical articles including 20 in refereed international journals.

Dr. Anil K. Patnaik is a professor of structural engineering at The University of Akron in Ohio, USA.  He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Calgary, and master’s degree in structural engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur, and a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from National Institute of Technology, Rourkela in India.  He has over twenty years of experience in academic positions at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSM&T) in Rapid City, Curtin University in Perth (Australia), the University of Western Australia, and presently is working at the University of Akron in Ohio. His current and recently funded research projects are on corrosion of reinforced concrete and steel structures, reinforced concrete members subjected in impact loads, synthetic and basalt fiber reinforced concrete (FRC), fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) materials for structural concrete applications, repair and strengthening of existing structures, construction and long term performance monitoring of bridge decks, structural slab bridges, prestressed concrete adjacent box-beam bridges, and carbon footprint assessment and life cycle analysis (LCA).  He is the author or co-author of over 100 technical papers, and over 100 research and design reports. He edited a book on high volume fly ash concrete and co-edited a book on high performance high strength concrete. He has several years of experience as a practicing engineer in design and construction of large industrial, commercial and offshore structures, and tall buildings. He taught and continues to teach several courses on structural engineering including reinforced and pre-stressed concrete design, FRP reinforced concrete design, senior design, tall building design, steel design and structural analysis at the undergraduate and graduate levels at several universities.

Dr. Neena Shekhar Panandikar is principal of Don Bosco College of Engineering, Fatorda Goa, entitled to be the first lady Principal of a technical institution in the state of Goa. She has published twenty research papers in various international journals, national and international conferences. As a part of social responsibility, she served as a member and developed curriculum for Rural Health Education Project, a joint project of Agnel Technical Education Complex in association with Algonquin College, Canada sponsored by CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency). She was appointed as an expert member as a part of Affiliation Committee by the Goa University to sanction postgraduate program in structural engineering at Goa College of Engineering. She is a life member of ISTE, Association of Structural Engineers and Indian Concrete Institute. She is a Chartered Engineer and has been conferred with IEI fellow membership. She was among 100 leaders selected from across the country to attend a workshop on leadership under AICTE-UKIERI, jointly organized by AICTE in association with Dudley College, UK and has received CMI certification in management and leadership. She is also on the academic council of Goa University and at present serving as a member of Goa State Innovation Council.
