The webinar started with a welcome note delivered by the moderator, Joydeep, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering, School of Technology where the esteemed speaker Dr. Somesh Sengupta was introduced.
Dr. Sengupta is currently serving as an Assistant Professor at St. Xavier’s college, Ranchi. He has done his PhD from Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra. He in his presentation on “Influence of geological and geoengineering parameters in assessment of stability of slopes in open pit coal mines” introduced the students the concept of open pit coal mines and the slope failure and stability analysis. He discussed the different geo-engineering parameters that are essential for stability analysis, and laboratory test or analysis involved in the process of finding the strength parameters. The session was quite interactive as students were quite inquisitive. Dr. Somesh Sengupta also shared his contact detail with the students for future communication.
The session ended with a vote of thanks delivered by the Moderator, Joydeep Das, Assistant Professor, Civil Engineering Department.
