Dear All,

I am sorry and sad to report  that Prof A S Arya left for heavenly abode after prolonged illness on 31st August 2019.

Prof Anand Swarup Arya, a graduate from IIT Roorkee (then University of Roorkee) Eminent Structural engineer, known for his expertise in the soil and foundation engineering and earthquake disaster management. He was a former chairman of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) Committee on Earthquake Engineering and a recipient of the United Nations Sasakawa Disaster Prevention Award of 1997. The Government of India awarded him the fourth highest civilian honour of the Padma Shri in 2002.

Our heartfelt condolences to the braved family and friends. Let his noble soul rest in peace.

Subramanian

Dear Er Abhy Vivek,

I wish to appreciate you and Er Vinay Kumar for preparing a document on Prof. Arya, who has done tremendous work on EQ engg as well as steel structures. In fact I learnt a lot from the book on steel structures authored by Prof. Arya and Dr Ajmani, which contains several practical aspects. The book on Masonry and Timber Structures, though not popular as the steel structures book-may be the subject it is not prescribed in many Univ.- is also very good. Both are still available.

Prof. Arya has also edited several books on Earthquake engg.

Long live Prof. Arya!

Regards
Subramanian
P.S. The paper 'Historical Developments And Current Status of Earthquake Engineering in India' by Profs Jain and Nigam published in the Proceedings of the 12th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering, Auckland, New Zealand, 2000, available in http://www.nicee.org/readings/paper1.pdf
makes an interesting reading!
