Om boka

This book presents the select proceedings of the International Conference on Sustainable Practices and Innovations in Civil Engineering (SPICE 2019). The chapters discuss emerging and current research in sustainability in different areas of civil engineering, which aim to provide solutions to sustainable development. The contents are broadly divided into the following six categories: (i) structural systems, (ii) environment and water resource systems, (iii) construction technologies, (iv)geotechnical systems, (v) innovative building materials, and (vi) transportation. This book will be of potential interest for students, researchers, and practitioners working in sustainable civil engineering related fields.

Om forfatteren

Dr. S. Ramanagopal is a Professor of Civil Engineering at S.S.N. College of Engineering (Autonomous), Chennai. He obtained his Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from College of Engineering, Chennai, Master's degree in Structural Engineering from Annamalai University, Chidambaram and his Ph.D. from Anna University, Chennai. He has nearly thirty years of wide and varied experience of teaching and research in various capacities. His research interests include Composite Structural system and use of supplementary cementing materials in concrete. He has published more than twenty papers in refereed journals and conferences besides two presentations in the International conference held at U.K. and Australia. He has conducted workshops and seminars in the field of structural engineering and Sustainable building construction.
Dr. G. MadhaviLatha is a Professor of Civil Engineering at Indian Institute of Science. She holds a PhD in Civil Engineering from IIT Madras, MTech degree from NIT Warangal and a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from JNT University, Kakinada. She worked as a postdoctoral researcher at IISc from 2002-2003. Madhavi's research interests center around fundamental aspects of soil and ground reinforcement. Several topics explored in the area of soil reinforcement include strength and stiffness of geocell reinforced soils; model tests on geosynthetic reinforced foundation beds, retaining walls and slopes; seismic response of rigid, wrap-faced, modular block faced and geocell retaining walls through shaking table studies. She also maintains an active interest in many topics in rock engineering, including numerical modelling of jointed rock masses, stability analysis of rock slopes, and rock slope reinforcement. Dr. KartikVenkataraman is an Associate Professor of Environmental Engineering at Tarleton State University (part of the Texas A&M University system), United States. His research interests include groundwater contamination investigation, evaluation of hydrologic trends and the broad application of geospatial techniques in water resource management. He has received state and federal funding from agencies such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency and regularly publishes in high-impact journals such as the Journal of Hydrology. In 2016, he received the Outstanding Junior Faculty award at Tarleton State University. Dr. Venkataraman is also a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Texas and actively mentors the student chapter of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers [TSPE] at his university as well as serves on the TSPE Education Committee.
