Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering (IJGEE) is to publish a bi-annual publication of peer-reviewed articles on research and development in analytic, experimental, and field studies of geotechnical and earthquake engineering. It will also include inter-allied areas of (but not limited to) geophysics and geothermal engineering, pavement engineering, engineering seismology, engineering geology, hazard mitigation, and structural engineering. This journal provides timely articles on cutting edge research. The journal draws research and development from scientists and engineers worldwide in the fields of earthquake engineering, geotechnical engineering, geophysics, and engineering seismology. Work on experimental, analytic, design, field studies, and case histories are encouraged

Editor(s)-in-Chief Biography

T.G. Sitharam is a professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore, India). He obtained master's degree in geotechnical engineering from Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore, India) in 1986 and a PhD in civil engineering from University of Waterloo (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) in 1991. Further, he worked as a post doctoral researcher at Center for Earth Sciences and Engineering (CESE), University of Texas at Austin (Texas, USA) until 1994. He has served as a visiting professor in Dolhousie University and University of Waterloo (Canada) and Yamaguchi University (Japan). His research interests are in the area of earth science and engineering in particular geotechnical engineering, soil dynamics, geotechnical earthquake engineering, and rock mechanics. He is convener and member of working group of experts of geotechnical engineers in geohazards programm of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), Govt of India. He is also member of Programme Advisory and Monitoring Committee (PAMC) for the nationally coordinated programme on Seismicity by Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) and Department of Science and Technology (DST) DST, Govt of India. He was a member of TC 29 Laboratory Stress Strain Strength Testing of Geomaterials, International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) for the year 2001-2005. Professor Sitharam has guided twelve Ph.D students, three MSc(Engg) students and several ME project students. Currently he has six doctoral students working with him for their PhD degrees. He has written two text books, one on applied elasticity and the other on soil mechanics and foundation engineering, and also guest edited volumes on geotechnics and earthquake hazards for Current Science and seismic microzonation for Journal of Earth System Science.
