“Being from a research background and having worked on seismic hazard and liquefaction studies for the past five years at IIT Bhubaneswar motivated me to pursue my career in the industry. I wish to enhance my conceptual understanding of both structural and geotechnical engineering by involving in various projects. In the two months of my stint at WME, I have come across various challenges (soil-structure interaction) that designers are facing which are a research problem by themselves.”

Join us congratulating our colleague, Praveen Huded, Junior Structural Engineer, Structures – Bangalore, India!

He defended his doctoral thesis on 17-Nov-2022. He worked on the Investigation of Pile Foundation in Liquefiable Soil Deposit with Sandwiched Non-liquefiable Soil Layer for the past five years under the supervision of Dr. Suresh R. Dash at the Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar, India. The research developed methods to estimate the design bending moment and buckling capacity of the pile foundation in layered liquefiable soil deposits with sandwiched non-liquefiable soil layers. The research addresses the practical problem of pile foundations in liquefiable soil. The findings of the study have given new insights to the designers and researchers on consideration of the effect of sandwiched non-liquefiable soil on the bending and buckling behaviour of pile foundations in liquefiable soil deposits. The research work has been published in Journals like Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering and Pure and Applied Geophysics.
