Major Contributions over the Past Two Decades
Continuing Education Programmes:
Over 2000 professionals have been trained in earthquake-resistant design and construction so far in India, Nepal and Bhutan.
Development of Indian Seismic Codes:
Participated as lead authors in the exhaustive review, rationalization and redrafting the provisions in BIS and IRC Codes related to seismic design of structures.
National Information Center for Earthquake Engineering (India):
A National Information Center of Earthquake Engineering (NICEE) has been set up at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. The Center is sponsored by HUDCO, Telecom Commission, Railway Board, Ministry of Agriculture, Department of Atomic Energy. An Important release under NICEE is the IITK-BMTPC Earthquake Tips, which involves releasing every month two A-4 size page of written materials on earthquake resistant design and construction.
National Programme on Earthquake Engineering Education:
National Programme on Earthquake Engineering Education (NPEEE) has been launched by the Ministry of Human Resource Development of the Government of India to develop a strong human resource of engineering college teachers in earthquake engineering. IIT Kanpur is the coordinating Institute.
