SEMINAR ON EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT DESIGN

Prof U C Ahmedkutty handled a session on the earthquake resistant design on 17th march 2010.The earthquake engineering concepts have been applied to numerous major projects in high seismic regions in the country. Extensive damage during several moderate earthquakes in recent years indicates that despite such early gains, earthquake risk in the country has been increasing alarmingly. Most buildings even in high seismic regions of the country continue to be built without appropriate earthquake resistant features. In a developing country such as India, basic poverty issues like food, shelter, health, and education remain the highest priority and natural disaster mitigation does not get the priority that it should. Amongst the major challenges ahead is to sensitize the policy makers, the politicians and the administrators to the issues of earthquake safety. With five damaging earthquakes in the last eleven years, this is the right time to initiate a sustained and proactive effort in this direction. Finally he didn’t forget to say “Earthquakes never kill man but, Buildings do”

Dr. Somi Sebastian, Principal, SBCE, and Dr. E. K. Bhass, HOD, Dept. of Civil Engineering, also addressed the audience.
The Civil Engineering students must be aware about the environmental problems that we are facing nowadays and have to find some solutions. So, a one day national workshop on “Green Retrofitting towards climate change and disaster risk reduction” was conducted by CASTELLOS on 24th January 2015 at SBCE. Seminars were taken by Dr. Kesav Mohan, Director, Institute of Land and Disaster Management (ILDM), Mr. Amal Raj, Assistant Professor at ILDM and Mr. Vinod from Habitat Group. The seminars were based on Climate change, Disaster risk reduction and Green Retrofitting.
CASTELLOS conducted a workshop on mix design in association with Ultratech Cement Private Limited on 28th March 2015. The Chief Guest was Mr. M A Joseph, Regional Manager of Ultratech. Many student groups from SBCE participated in a cube strength competition which was held in association with Ultratech and the winners were awarded with prizes.
For achieving a good carrier, students not only require classes from their lecturers, but also guidance from their seniors is required. Taking this into account the PG Scholars of SBCE organized a workshop on “Non-destructive testing methods” and conducted a seminar on “Forensic Engineering” for seventh semester Civil Engineering students on 16th July 2015. It was a great success because during the workshop, the testing methods were shown practically in the Structural Engineering laboratory for getting more knowledge.
With proper funding by our management rain water harvesting and drip irrigation systems were implemented in the Department of Civil Engineering on 9th March 2015. Rain water Harvesting and drip irrigation is familiar with Civil Engineering students, and by implementing both systems the students will be able to understand it visually. Determining water quality is an important factor in day to day life of common people for preventing diseases. So CASTELLOS organized a program “Jalashudhi” which includes testing of drinking water from nearby villages of SBCE and providing reports of the tested samples to the villagers. If any problem is found in the quality of water samples, the remedial measures were suggested by the concerned authority. The relation between our college and villagers is strengthened by Jalashudhi Program.
An Industrial consultancy centre which works for a social welfare by helping in the testing of construction at affordable rates is formed in our college by CASTELLOS. It is running smoothly now also. Here by I am concluding the annual report of CASTELLOS for the academic year 2014-2015. Finally, let me express my sincere gratitude to the Management, Principal, Other Heads of the departments, H.O.D. Civil Engineering, Staff and all my dear students for your cooperation extended to the association activities.
