  • 2nd International Conference on Advances in Concrete, Structural & Geotechnical Engineering (ACSGE - 2018)

    2nd International Conference on Advances in Concrete, Structural & Geotechnical Engineering (ACSGE - 2018)

    Recent advances in concrete science, structural and geotechnical materials, computational and experimental techniques, the gradual diffusion of certain interdisciplinary areas with structural mechanics and engineering as well as geotechnical engineering have nearly revolutionized. The expansions of civil engineering infrastructures such as dams, railways, highways, bridges, mass transit systems, ports, and airports contribute significantly to the movement of raw materials, agricultural products and, most importantly manpower from producing regions to urban areas. These expansions depend mainly on the technological developments in the concrete science, structural and geotechnical engineering. Many problems in contemporary structural and geotechnical engineering are looked upon, solved and extended for use in the context of soil-structure interaction, construction, structural materials and geometric and other uncertainties. Therefore, there is an urgent need for the researchers and the practicing engineers working in the broad field of concrete technology, structural and geotechnical engineering to keep abreast of the latest trends and developments in these fields with the aim of updating their analytical and practical skills. 
     
    Keeping this in view, the 2nd International Conference on Advances in Concrete, Structural & Geotechnical Engineering (ACSGE - 2018) is being organized at BITS, Pilani from 26-28, February 2018 by the Department of Civil Engineering, BITS, Pilani. The main objective of the conference was to follow up the scientific studies and experiences gained in the developments of the innovative and sustainable construction materials and their applications in the field of concrete infrastructures, structural and geotechnical engineering, especially during the last decade. Prof. R. K. Dhir, Order of British Empire (OBE), Professor Emeritus of University of Dundee, U.K. and the President of U.K. Concrete Society will be the  Guest of Honor during the event.
     
    Nearly 160 scientific papers from across the globe as well as 28 keynote papers are going to be presented by world renowned eminent scholars in the field of concrete technology, structural and geotechnical engineering. 
     
    UltraTech Cement Ltd, Mumbai, WPIL Ltd.; PROTECH Consulting Engineers, Kolkata; Ashiana Builders; N K Buildcon Pvt. Limited, Jaipur; Department of Science & Technology (DST), New Delhi; Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi; Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), Mumbai and Department of Science & Technology (DST), Rajasthan have financially supported this second international conference.

  • Workshop on "Preparation and Installation of Sparrow Nest Boxes” Held at BITS Pilani

    Workshop on "Preparation and Installation of Sparrow Nest Boxes” Held at BITS Pilani


     
    A workshop on “Preparation and Installation of Sparrow Nest Boxes” was conducted for staff children on 17th February, 2018 by the Peacock Restoration Team, BITS, Pilani, Pilani Campus, in association with BITSAA (as part of the Rauf Ali Memorial Project – Bring Back the Peacocks). Twenty-six students belonging to classes of 2nd to 8th from different schools participated in the event. 
     
    The event began with a brief introduction about the BITSAA initiative on raising the peafowl populations on campus, followed by an interactive session on importance of birds towards ecosystem conservation in general and sparrows in particular. Thereafter, two short video films (around seven minutes’ duration each) were shown to the students. The first video was about the work being done by the sparrow expert, Mr. Mohammed Dilawar, whose team also prepares nest boxes to conserve sparrows. The second video expressed the views and concerns of different ecologists towards declining population of sparrows as a result of rapid urbanization and pesticide use in agriculture, and what can be done to revive them. The video sessions were followed by a short quiz on sparrows and a singing session where kids sang songs related to birds. The atmosphere was full of fun and excitement. Demonstration for making of nest boxes for sparrows using cardboard boxes including installation of the same was given to kids.
     
    The Peacock Restoration Team at BITS, Pilani thanked BITSAA for their active support towards such events and Dr. Sonika Kushwaha, President, and Dr. Akhilesh Kumar, Secretary, Indian Biodiversity Conservation Society, Jhansi, UP, India for their valuable inputs in making sparrow nest boxes.
