[/CENTER ALIGN]Prof. NemkumarBanthia (1959-)[/CENTER ALIGN]



Prof. Banthia,   was recently inducted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC)—the highest honour a scholar can achieve in the Arts,Humanities and Sciences in Canada.I am giving below a short bio data of Prof. Banthia and enclosed is an article published in April 2012 issue of ICJ.


Nemkumar Banthia
is a Professor of Civil Engineering, Distinguished University Scholar  and a  Canada Research Chair at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.Dr. Banthia obtained his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 1987on Impact Resistance of Concrete, and since than he has been actively pursuing research in the areas of cement-based and polymer-based fiber reinforced composites, with particular emphasis on testing and standardization, fracture behavior, strain-rate effects, durability and development of sustainable materials.  He pioneered the process of structural repair and strengthening using sprayed fiber reinforced polymers—a highly innovative and sought after for structural rehabilitation around the world. He is credited for his contributions to the fundamental understanding of sprayed concrete including particle and fiber kinematics, rebound modeling, in-situ quality control and performance characterization. In the area of fiber reinforced cementitious composites, he has developed a number of novel fibers for concrete and shotcrete reinforcement, and these fibers that are now being used in numerous large projects around the world.

Dr. Banthia has edited/co-edited fifteen volumes,published over 250 technical papers, and holds three international patents. A professional engineer in the province of BC, Dr. Banthia serves on the technical committees of various professional societies including the American Concrete Institute where he chairs the committee on fiber reinforced concrete, RILEM where he chairs the Technical Committee on FRP-Concrete Bond,and the Canadian Standards Association where he chairs the Durability Committee of the Highway Bridge Design Code.  Dr. Banthia also serves on the Editorial Boards of four international journals.  
Dr. Banthia has received various honors and awards worldwide including the WG Hislop Award of the ACI-BC Chapter, four Best Paper Awards, and the Wason Medal from the American Concrete Institute. More recently he was honored by the British Columbia Innovation Council by its coveted Solutions Through Research Award and jointly by the Seoul National University and the Korea Concrete Institute by their Distinguished Researcher Award. Dr. Banthia is a fellow of the American Concrete Institute, the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, the Indian Concrete Institute and the Canadian Academy of Engineering. The BC Business Magazine recently chose Dr. Banthia as one of British Columbia’s Top 25 Innovators.
Dr. Banthia’s research interests are in the areas of Fiber reinforced concrete,Concrete durability, Fracture mechanics and Strain-rate effects, Shotcrete,Sustainable repair technologies, Fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs), Smartmaterials and sensors, and Structural health monitoring. In these areas, he has edited/co-edited fifteen volumes, published over 300 technical papers, and holds three international patents.

Dr. Banthia has so far trained over 60 post-graduate students including 20doctoral students and 6 post-doctoral fellows. He is a sought after keynote speaker at international meeting with six international keynote addresses in2009 alone. He chairs the Horst Leipholz Medal Selection Committee of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering and is a member of the Thompson Award Selection Committee of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).He serves on the steering and technical committees of numerous conferences and has himself instigated two highly prestigious international conferences (CONSEC and CONMAT) and two very successful international workshops (IU-FRC and PROTECT).
