About Events

Faculty Development Programme on Recent Innovations in Geotechnical Engineering organized by Department of Civil Engineering, Kalasalingam University Which will be held from May 5 2015 to May 5-10 2015. Geotechnical Engineering (GE) plays a key role in all civil engineering projects built on or in the ground. GE is vital for the assessment of natural hazards such as earthquakes, liquefaction, sinkholes, rock falls and landslides. In the recent years, our country has developed many infrastructure projects (many are in progress and many more to come) which include railways, highways, ports, underground tunnels, power plants etc. The infrastructure development is a strong backbone for any country development and the Geotechnical Engineers are playing a key role in these kinds of infrastructure projects. Uses of software have also found wide scope in the analysis
and design of substructure elements. Therefore, the main scope of this Faculty Development Programme
(FDP) is to enrich the faculty with a comprehensive knowledge in the field of geotechnical engineering
aspects such as site investigations, soil-structure interaction, soil nailing, design of reinforced soil retaining walls and advancements in pavement evaluation.This FDP programme is aimed at identifying the
research potential and interdisciplinary techniques by the Faculty members from premier institutions
like IIT Madras, IISC Bangalore, NIRM Bangalore, NIT Trichy and GCT Coimbatore and also by the experts in the construction field and software solutions. This FDP programme will provide a good platform for the young faculty to interact with experts at the university level to enrich their knowledge in the subject and to familiarize them with effective teaching-learning practices.
