About these proceedings


This book contains selected papers in the area of structural engineering from the proceedings of the conference, Futuristic Approaches in Civil Engineering (FACE) 2019. In the area of construction materials, the book covers high quality research papers on raw materials and manufacture of cement, mixing, rheology and hydration, admixtures, characterization techniques and modeling, fiber-reinforced concrete, repair and retrofitting of concrete structures, novel testing techniques such as digital image correlation (DIC). Research on sustainable building materials like Geopolymer concrete and recycled aggregates are covered. In the area of earthquake engineering, papers related to the seismic response of load-bearing unreinforced masonry walls, reinforced concrete frame and buildings with dampers are covered. Additionally, there are chapters on structures subjected to vehicular impact and fire. The contents of this book will be useful for graduate students, researchers and practitioners working in the areas of concrete, earthquake and structural engineering.

About the editors

Prof. Kolluru V.L. Subramaniam is a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH). Prior to joining IITH, he was Professor and Catell Fellow in Department of Civil Engineering at the Grove School of Engineering, the City College of New York (CCNY). Dr. Subramaniam obtained a B.Tech. in Civil Engineering from IIT Delhi and Ph.D. in Structural Engineering and Materials from Northwestern University, Evanston. After graduation, Dr. Subramaniam worked as Research Associate at the NSF Center for Advanced Cement Based Materials. Dr. Subramaniam was awarded the Early Career Award from the National Science Foundation of USA for investigating the early-age changes in cementitious materials. He received the James Instrument Award from the American Concrete Institute (ACI) in 1999 for his research on nondestructive evaluation of concrete. He is the recipient of the outstanding young researcher award at the Grove School of Engineering in 2006. He was the Chairman, committee 215 on Fatigue of Concrete of the ACI. In 2009, he was elected Fellow of the American Concrete Institute for notable contribution in the area of fracture and fatigue of concrete. He has served on the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering and the Journal of Bridge Engineering of the American Society of Civil Engineers. He is a life member of the Indian Concrete Institute. Prof. Subramaniam is currently the Director of the Center of Excellence in Sustainable Urban Development of the Ministry of Human Resource Development at IIT Hyderabad. He is the Program leader for the Sustainable Development thrust in the Friendship program of the Japan International Cooperation Agency. He was the recipient of excellence in teaching award at IIT Hyderabad in 2011 and 2015.


Dr. Mohd Ataullah Khan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Mahindra Ecole Centrale (MEC), Hyderabad, India. He has a master’s in Structural Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India and a PhD in Interdisciplinary Engineering from the Khalifa University of Science and Technology (KUST), Abu dhabi. His PhD was funded by the Masdar institute (a part of KUST) – Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MI-MIT) cooperative agreement. The doctoral work of Dr. Mohd was focused on theoretical and computational modeling, 3D printing and experimental evaluation of material-tailored multilayers. Dr. Mohd has published articles in the top quartile mechanics journals along with peer-reviewed conferences.  His research interest lies in the areas of mechanics of adhesively bonded joints, micro-/nano- fibre-reinforced composites, novel bio-inspired composites and concrete 3D printing. Dr. Mohd also had experience working as structural engineer for the design of steel structures, prior to joining PhD.
