Structural Engineering

Our research group mainly focuses on the use of modern and innovative techniques for design and construction of different structures/ structure members. Now a days various waste materials like rubber, plastics, glass etc and mineral admixtures like rice husk ash, bagasse ash etc are used as partial replacement of cement/ aggregate in concrete/mortar. Our group focuses on the use of these wastes in concrete to modify/enhance different characteristics of concrete. Also, advancements related to earthquake engineering design will be incorporated. Performance based design and different issues regarding structural stability will be covered.
