March 2006 Passed Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering with 97.09 percentile.
• June 2007 Passed B.E. Civil from Osmania University with 66.96%.
• July 2009 Passed M.Tech from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, Roorkee with CPI of 7.59/10. I have worked on Probabilistic Analysis of Strip Footing on Layered Soil Media Using Monte Carlo Simulation for M. Tech Dissertation. Here, Monte Carlo Simulation technique has been used to analyze a strip footing on three layered soil.
• July 2013 Completed Ph.D from Indian Institute of Technology, Rookee, Rookee with CPI of 8.50/10. My research topic for thesis was Deterministic and Probabilistic Analysis of Shallow Foundations on Layered Soils. A parametric study has been conducted to investigate the behavior of a strip footing on a three layered soil strata in which the elastic modulus of the soil layers has been considered as a stochastic variable. The autocorrelation distance has been considered as finite and infinite for linear stress strain relationship. Whereas infinite for nonlinear stress strain relationship. A code has been written in C language to generate the realizations of elastic modulii by solving a stochastic differential equation to study the stochastic behavior. These realizations are fed to a finite element code for deterministic behavior of strip footing on three layered soil has been written in FORTRAN 90. The influence of the stochastic variable on settlement at the center below the footing as well as stress at the interface of soil layers has been studied.
