Writeup on Reports of Brainstorming Sessions

Chemistry in India—Unlocking the PotentialWriteup on Reports of Brainstorming Sessions in Civil and Environmental Engineering PAC

During the exercise of reconstitution of PACs' under the SERB in the year 2012, a new PAC on Civil and Environmental Engineering was constituted. The PAC under the Chairmanship of Professor Kalyanaraman in its first meeting held in July, 2012 had entrusted the responsibility of organising separate discussion and interaction sessions with the objective of identifying topics for research and development for submission of proposals apart from general topics in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Guidelines were made by the PAC for organising these sessions.


* PAC Workshop Guidelines for Brainstorming Sessions *


Seven PAC members agreed to be the lead Coordinators for discussion and interactive sessions in the following areas:-


  • Structural Engineering - conducted at IISc-Bangalore on 30-31 Janaury, 2014

  • Geotechnical Engineering - conducted at IIT-Mumbai on 26.03.2014

  • Earthquake Engineering - conducted at IIIT-Hyderabad on 23.08.2014

  • Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering - conducted at IIT-Guwahati on 17-18 July, 2014

  • Transportation Engineering - conducted at IIT-Kanpur on November 7, 2014

  • Environment Engineering (yet to be conducted)

  • Civil Engineering Materials and Construction Management (yet to be conducted)

  • The reports of the first four interactive sessions are available on the above links.


    Civil Engineering experts and faculty members are requested to peruse the reports emerging out of these sessions and we would welcome projects (individual institutions or inter-institutional projects in the areas identified in these reports.)
