Profile Summary 

Abhishek is working in the broad area of earthquake and structural engineering under Dr. Gyan Vikash, Associate Professor, Shiv Nadar University. The prime focus of his research is to develop a finite element model of the soil-caisson-pier system of a bridge structure using an FEM software considering the material and geometric nonlinearity under different soil conditions with proper interface modelling. The research further focusses on creating a more robust and accurate spring-mass model of the soil-caisson-pier system from the simulation results correlating the soil characteristics, nonlinearity, inhomogeneity, and interface phenomenon with the model parameters. The developed model can be used by design engineers directly for design purposes.
