The topics of my M.Tech thesis and Ph.D thesis from renowned Earthquake Engineering Department at IIT-Roorkee are as under, which is my area of interest.
Topic of M.Sc Engg Dissertation: Seismic Response of Single Storey Masonry Building with Sliding Sub-Structure
Topic of Ph.D. Thesis: Out-of-plane Behaviour of Unreinforced Masonry Infill Panels
My current research is on macro and micro study of high and normal strength concrete at elevated temperatures along with the use and study of recycling of Waste materials for construction.
I had UPCST and AICTE sponsored projects in these areas. Set up a lab for the study of materials at elevated temperatures.
My research work includes study of Seismic Response, Design and Modeling of UR Masonry Structures
I am engaging Courses the following courses at Undergraduate and post graduate level
Design of Concrete Structures-I
Design of Steel Structures
Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures
I have published papers in the following refereed International Journals given below,
Bulletin Indian Society of Earthquake & Tech., Roorkee, India
Journal of Ferrocement, Bankok, Thailand
Indian Concrete Journal
Journal of Institution of Engineers
Journal for Environmental Engineering and Policy Springer, University of Cincinnati, Pennsylvania, U.S.A
Pergamon Elsevier Science Ltd, Cement and Concrete Research-An International Journal, USA
Science Direct, Elsevier Science Ltd, Construction and Building Materials-An International Journal, USA
Was also a member of Academic Council and at administrative front. I was Provost of Nadeem Tarin Hall. Presently I am President of Tennis Club
