Fest Name: Short Course on Geotechnical aspects of Earthquake Engineering 2019
Organizing College Name: IIT Indore
Fest Type: Training
Fest Start Date: 26th December 2019
Fest End Date: 28th December 2019
Fest Info: India has experienced the most disastrous earthquake like Assam (M=8.7), Kaogra 1905 (M=8.6), Bihar-Nepal 1934 (M=8.4), Assam-Tibet 195(M=8.7), Uttarkashi 1991 (M=6.5), Latur 1993 (M=6.4), Jabalpur 1997 (M=6.0), Chamoli 1993 (M=6.8), Bhuj 201 (M=7.6), Kashmir 2005 (M=7.4) and Sikkim 2011 (M=6.9), Kashmir 2015 (M=5.7), Bharatpur 2015 (M=7.3), Tripura 2017 (M=5.7), North-east 2018 (M=5.5), Mirpur 2019- (M=4.7), Jhelum Punjab 2019 (M=5.6) in the recent past The large and rapidly growing urban seismic risk, particularly in development countries like India is a problem that needs to be quickly solved. Urbanization s rapidly increasing in every city in India. Huge infrastructure developmental plans have been laid in all these cities which are demanding trained structural engineers/consultants in a large number. It is observed that large concentration of damage in specific areas during an earthquake is due to site dependent factors related to surface geological conditions and local soil altering seismic motion. To reduce the gap and transfer the knowledge many workshops, seminars, sort courses and technical lectures were conducted by IIT Indore, t bring the awareness amongst the professional engineers. The course is designed to have a broader review on the various aspects of Geotechnical Engineering interlinked with Earthquake Engineering. Each of these lectures during this short course addresses specific issues from the beginning to end (from engineering seismology to Earthquake resistant design). The course lectures cover both fundamentals and applications including hands-on experience in seismic design of sub-structures.
