Dr.Narayanan S


Prof. Narayanan acquired PhD in Civil Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India in 1998 for the work titled ” Improving Cyclone Resistant Characteristics of Roof Cladding of Industrial Sheds”. His research areas are Structural Engineering (including wind and earthquake action on structures) and construction management. He worked as Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Selection grade Lecturer in TKM College of Engineering (1990-2004), Visiting Lecturer at Physical Infrastructural Centre, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane Australia, Associate Professor in University Malaysia Sabah(2004-2007) and in University Technology Petronas (2007-July 2014), Perak, Malaysia and published many papers in conferences and journals and three books. He has conducted a sponsored course on “Disaster Mitigation- An Update for Civil Engineers” for All India Council of Technical Education, course titled ” Load and Resistance Factor Design” under auspices of Malaysian Structural Steel Association and at RIT Kottayam and “Research Methodology” at TKM College of Engineering. He has actively involved in many research projects like ” Load factor calibration of Offshore Jacket Platforms in Malaysia”, “Preservation and Structural Use of Rubberwood”, “Techniques to Improve the Cyclone Resistant Characteristics of the Roofs of Industrial Sheds”, Towards Cyclone Resistant Buildings Through Improvements and Innovations to Roofing System(QUT Australia), Semi-precast Light Weight Flooring Slab, Composite columns, Rehabilitation of damaged columns, Assessment of Corrosion Rate on Offshore Structural Members, Seismic Vulnerability Assessment, Analysis and retrofit of special structures etc. He has graduated several PhD and Postgraguate students and is a registered postgraduate research guide in Kerala University, Dr. Narayanan is life member of the Institution of Engineers(India), Indian Society for Technical Education and Indian Society for Wind Engineering.
