About the Editors

Pijush Samui

Professor Pijush Samui is currently an Associate Professor at National Institute of Technology, Patna, India. He is an established researcher in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for solving different problems in engineering. He developed a new method for prediction of response of soil during an earthquake. He has given charts for prediction of response of soil during an earthquake and developed equations for prediction of lateral spreading of soil due to earthquake. He developed equations for determination of seismic liquefaction potential of soil based on strain energy and prediction of seismic attenuation. He developed efficient models for prediction of magnitude of reservoir induced earthquake. He has developed models for determination of medical waste generation in hospitals with equations used for practical purpose. The developed models can be used for clean India project. He determined frequency effects on liquefaction by using Shake Table. He has applied AI techniques for determination of bearing capacity and settlement of foundation and equations for determination of bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundation. He also developed equations for determination of compression index and angle of shearing resistance of soil. he developed equations for prediction of uplift capacity of suction caisson. He also developed equations for determination of fracture parameters of concrete. His active research activity is evident from his extensive citation of publications in google scholar (total frequency of 1280) with H-Index of 22. Dr Samui has published journal papers, books/book chapters and peer reviewed conference papers that involved co-authors from Australia, India, Korea and several other nations. He is also holding the position of Visiting Professor at Far East Federal University (Russia).
