Mr. Mohd Shihabuddin Khan
Postgraduate Student - IITB
Department of Civil Engineering
Shihab completed his B.E. in Civil Engineering from Rajiv Gandhi Technological University at Bhopal, India. He graduated with honours in 2012. After securing 99 percentile in G.A.T.E. 2013, he pursued M.Tech. in Engineering Structures from N.I.T. Warangal, India. He graduated with honours and was awarded Erasmus Mundus Heritage scholarship for the year 2014-15 to Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France. As a part of his Master’s thesis, he developed a stochastic algorithm for E.G.I.S. Industries Paris, which simulated the transverse cracking phenomenon in Reinforced Concrete members, under the guidance of Prof Panagiotis Kotronis. He joined the IIT Bombay-Monash Academy as a Doctoral candidate and is working on the project to estimate the value of structural health monitoring information, under the supervision of Prof Siddhardha Ghosh (IIT Bombay), Prof Jayadipta Ghosh (IIT Bombay) and Prof Colin Caprani (Monash University).
Shihab’s research interests lie in the different aspects of infrastructure management, particularly life-cycle cost analysis, service life estimation of structures, degradation in structures and structural health monitoring information. His other primary domain of interest is uncertainty quantification.
His PhD thesis is focused on estimating the value of structural health monitoring information for degrading reinforced concrete infrastructures.
He likes to research on building more efficient and smart models that learn and incorporate uncertainties for structural management, analysis, design and degradation.
