About the editors

Dr. Sanjay Kumar Shukla is Founding Research Group Leader (Geotechnical and Geo-environmental Engineering) at the School of Engineering, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia. He is Founding Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Geosynthetics and Ground Engineering. He holds the Distinguished Professorship in Civil Engineering at Delhi Technological University, Delhi, VIT University, Vellore, Amity University, Noida, Chitkara University, Himachal Pradesh, and VR Siddhartha Engineering College, Vijayawada, India. He graduated in Civil Engineering from BIT Sindri, India, and earned his M.Tech. in Civil (Engineering Geology) Engineering and Ph.D. in Civil (Geotechnical) Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, India. His primary areas of research interest include geosynthetics and fibers for sustainable developments, ground improvement techniques, utilization of wastes in construction, earth pressure and slope stability, environmental, mining and pavement geotechnics, and soil–structure interaction. He is Author/Editor of 16 books, including 7 textbooks, and more than 260 research papers, including 160 refereed journal papers. He has been honored with several awards, including IGS Award 2018 by the International Geosynthetics Society, USA, in recognition of outstanding contribution to the development and use of geosynthetics. He is Fellow of Engineers Australia, Institution of Engineers (India), and Indian Geotechnical Society, and Member of American Society of Civil Engineers, International Geosynthetics Society, and several other professional bodies.

Dr. Sudharshan N. Raman is Associate Professor in the School of Engineering, Monash University Malaysia. He obtained his Ph.D. with a focus in structural engineering and infrastructure protective technologies from The University of Melbourne, Australia. He is Past President of the Malaysian Chapter of the American Concrete Institute (Malaysia Chapter—ACI); Fellow of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE), UK; Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE); Member of American Concrete Institute (ACI); and Committee Member of the Civil & Structural Engineering Technical Division of The Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM). Over the years, he has built his reputation as Active Researcher in concrete structures and materials and infrastructure protective technologies. He has published extensively in the areas of cement and concrete engineering and structural resilience; has served as Reviewer for prestigious journals in civil and structural engineering and built environment; and currently sits in the editorial boards of three international journals. Prior to joining the academia, he was in employment with an engineering design consultant and a specialist prestressed concrete contractor.

Dr. Bishwajit Bhattacharjee is Emeritus Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Delhi. He obtained B.Tech.
