  2. Quality construction can prevent earthquake damage by DrRaju Sarkar, Associate Professor, Department of Civil Engineering Delhi Technological University (DTU) on 16sept 2015

Construction of buildings involves high precision and technological expertise. A Scientific design of buildings and their construction using quality material are capable of preventing structure failure during natural or man-made disasters.

Interacting with students, Dr Raju Sarkar, Associate Professor, Department of Civil Engineering Delhi Technological University (DTU), highlighted the importance of tie-beams, shear walls and other safety measures at the time of construction. He advised that adding these features ensures safety of the structure and its occupants. He said that high rise buildings should not have soft-storeys (structure resting on columns without walls in basements) as they might lead to the failure of tall structure during an earthquake.

Dr Sarkar, who has done his post-doctoral fellowship from the University of Nottingham, also discussed the reasons for massive destruction in Bhuj in Gujarat.

Dr K N Kaul, Registrar and Dr Naresh Sahajpal, Dean Academics urged students to follow the engineering norms while planning or constructing any building structure. Prof Ranjodh Singh, from Civil Department said that investment of quality in construction goes a long way to ensure safety and life of the structure. Prof Sudhir Arora from Civil Department said that such events would help students to become better professionals therefore the Department will make sure that events like expert talks are given impetus to facilitate over-all growth of students.

  1. Utility and Aesthetics of Bridge Design Must Go Together, says Italian Expert Prof Enzo Siviero on 8 march 2016

Enzo Siviero, a professor at the University Institute of Architecture in Venice, a consultant professor at Tongji University, Shanghai-China and Vice-head of ConsiglioUniversitarioNazionale (CUN), Italian National University Council at the Ministry of Education in Rome also presented his works carried out across the world featuring some of the world’s best bridges.


Although function and utility in the construction of bridges should be given priority, aesthetic considerations in their design and execution should also be made integral. A noted expert and professor of Structure Mechanics in an Italian University Prof. Enzo Siviero, who delivered a guest lecture at DAV University, said a bridge did not require having the same monotonous beam design but it should also gel with its surroundings. A structure design expert should not ignore aesthetic aspect of construction as bridges also play a vital role in linking cultures and people. The guest lecture was hosted by Elemental – a technical club of the Department of Civil Engineering at DAV University.
