The Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indore is organizing an Online Short Term Course on Recent advancement in Structural and Geotechnical Engineering from March 8 to 12, 2021.
Indian Institute of Technology, Indore (IIT Indore or IITI), located in Madhya Pradesh, is one of the Institutes of Technology established by the Government of India in 2009. It is one of the eight new Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under The Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 2011 which declares eight new IITs as well as the conversion of Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University to IIT.
The course will cover topics related to recent advancements in the field of structural and geotechnical engineering. Some of the key focus areas of the proposed course include degradation mechanism, structural health monitoring (SHM) using sensory data, and reliability assessment of civil engineering infrastructure. The course will contain four major components:
- Impact of climate change and other environmental factors on civil engineering structures;
- Degradation mechanism such as corrosion;
- Health monitoring of civil engineering structures using latest technologies; and
- Probabilistic health assessment of the civil engineering structures using real-time SHM data.
SHM techniques such as non-destructive testing, vibration-based monitoring, strain-based monitoring, and advanced optical sensing technology will be covered. Analysis of data to assess the present health condition of a structure will be explained. Recent advancements in real-time damage detection methods and algorithms for remaining useful life estimation of critical structures will be discussed.
Who can Attend?
The course is open mainly to teachers of engineering colleges and polytechnics approved by AICTE. No course fee will be charged for participants sponsored by AICTE approved institutions.
Eligible participants from other government departments and industries must pay a course fee of Rs. 2500/- and Rs. 5000/- respectively per person.
The registration fee can be paid online through online payment/ bank transfer Bank: Canara Bank; Branch: IIT Indore, Simrol campus; Account number: 1476101027440; IFSC Code: CNRB0006223.
