Description

TC Chair: Dipanjan Basu

Geo-structures and geo-operations often form important interfaces between the built and natural environments, and interact with and affect a wide variety of externalities. Geotechnical design and construction, being placed early in a typical civil engineering project, can significantly contribute to sustainable development by adopting environment-friendly, cost-effective and socially-acceptable choices and setting a precedent for the remainder of the project. Further, geotechnical engineering has a very important role in mitigating and containing disasters, and failure to do so is often catastrophic to the society. Thus, geotechnical engineering has a wide gamut and can influence the sustainable development of infrastructure and civil societies in a significant way.
