Biography

Since 2014, he has taught many courses to civil engineering   students  in GEC. In addition to teaching conventional CE courses like Structural Analysis-I, Design of Steel Structures-I, Structural Analysis-III, Design of Concrete Structures-II, Railway Engineering, Engineering Graphics and Drawing.

He enjoys and encourages creative interdisciplinary work.

In the year 2014 he worked on his thesis and found that waste glass powder could be used in concrete in replacement of cement. The aim of the work was to use glass powder as a replacement of cement to assess the pozzolanic  activity of fine glass powder in concrete. A series of tests were conducted to study the effect of 10%, 20% and 30% replacement of cement by glass powder. The compressive strength, split tensile strength and the flexural strength test were determined for the mixes at the curing age of 7 days and 28 days. The results obtained for the above mixes were compared to investigate the effects of partial replacement of cement by WGP. Use of waste glass in concrete can prove to be economical as it was non useful waste and free of cost.
