The book presents research papers presented by academicians, researchers, and practicing structural engineers from India and abroad in the recently held Structural Engineering Convention (SEC) 2014 at Indian Institute of Technology Delhi during 22 24 December 2014. The book is divided into three volumes and encompasses multidisciplinary areas within structural engineering, such as earthquake engineering and structural dynamics, structural mechanics, finite element methods, structural vibration control, advanced cementitious and composite materials, bridge engineering, and soil-structure interaction. Advances in Structural Engineering is a useful reference material for structural engineering fraternity including undergraduate and postgraduate students, academicians, researchers and practicing engineers.

Dr. Vasant Matsagar is currently serving as an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi. He obtained his doctorate degree from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay in 2005 in the area of seismic base isolation of structures. He performed post-doctoral research at the Lawrence Technological University (LTU), USA in the area of carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) in bridge structures for more than three years. His current research interests include structural dynamics and vibration control; multi-hazard protection of structures from earthquake, blast, fire, and wind; finite element methods; fibre reinforced polymers (FRP) in prestressed concrete structures; and bridge engineering. He has guided students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in their bachelors and masters projects and doctoral research. Besides student guidance, he is actively engaged in sponsored research and consultancy projects at national and international levels. He has published around forty international journal papers, sixty international conference manuscripts, a book, and has filed for patents. He is also involved in teaching courses in structural engineering, e.g. structural analysis, finite element methods, numerical methods, structural stability, structural dynamics, design of steel and concrete structures to name a few. He has organised several short- and long-term courses as quality improvement programme (QIP) and continuing education programme (CEP), and delivered invited lectures in different educational and research organisations. Dr. Matsagar is the recipient of numerous national and international awards including "Erasmus Mundus Award" in 2013; "DST Young Scientist Award" by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) in 2012; "DAAD Awards" by the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD) in 2009 and 2012; "DAE Young Scientist Award" by the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) in 2011; "IBC Award for Excellence in Built Environment" by the Indian Buildings Congress (IBC) in 2010; "IEI Young Engineer Award" by the Institution of Engineers (India) in 2009; and "Outstanding Young Faculty Fellowship" by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi in 2009. He has also been appointed as "DAAD Research Ambassador" by the German Academic Exchange Programme since the academic session 2010.
