The Web Editor is calling for new contents for IAEG Webinar to improve the number of 30-40min presentations on specific subjects concerning engineering geology.
The Webinar can be recorded byself (or during congress) and sent to the IAEG Web Editor
Mechanical behavior of rock materials with reference to weathering grades
Arindam Basu Author
Prof. Arindam Basu completed B.Sc. and M.Sc. studies from Jadavpur University and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in 1997 and 1999, respectively. He pursued MPhil and PhD research at the University of Hong Kong (2000-2006) and subsequently, carried out postdoctoral research at Universidade de São Paulo (2006-2007). He joined the Department of Geology & Geophysics, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur as an Assistant Professor in 2007. He has been working as a Professor in this department since 2018. His prominent research contribution lies in understanding mechanical behavior and failure modes of virtually isotropic and anisotropic rock materials including weathered rocks under different states of stress; in improving various index test methods; and in scrutinizing shear behavior of rock discontinuities that has got implications in shallow-depth rockslides. He received the Geological Society of India Sesquicentennial Commemorative Award in recognition of valuable contributions in the field of Engineering Geology in 2013. His work has been cited over 1450 times https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=9ZUWc7oAAAAJ&hl=en.
E-YEG webinar series
The YEG group organized and recorded five webinar series. Each includes two presentations, one from a more experienced engineering geologist and one from a younger professional. The webinars are posted on this You Tube channel.
