Seismic Robustness of Masonry Infilled RC Frame

Effect of Soil-Structure Interaction on the Seismic Response of Tall Buildings

Research Experience

         Graduate Student Researcher in Doctor of Philosophy

(August 2005 to January 2011)

  Seismic Analysis of Soil-Well-Pier System for Bridges

-Investigated the effect of interface nonlinearity (Sliding, Separation and Uplift) on the response of well and pier

-Studied the seismic response of soil, well and pier in detail

-Proposed a 1D spring-dashpot model

  Seismic Design of Non-Structural Elements

-Reviewed of design philosophy and design provisions on non-structural element specified in Indian code (IS 1893) and several international seismic codes, and compared of design lateral forces recommended in these codes

-Proposed provisions on non-structural element for possible inclusion in IS 1893 along with detailed commentary on the proposed clauses

  Seismic Design of Beam-Column Joints

-Reviewed seismic design provisions on beam-column joints specified in Indian code (IS 1893)

-Proposed codal provisions for design and detailing of beam-column joints in seismic regions

  Seismic Design of Gravity Column

-Proposed codal provisions for design and detailing of gravity column for the possible inclusion in Indian code (IS 1893).
