In recent years, India witnessed several cases of major slope failures i.e. landslides (with fatality and no fatality) in some of the major surface Coal & lignite mines.
Prof. Indrajit Roy will discuss the experiences gained during scientific investigations of opencast mines from his deliberation.
Bio: Prof. Indrajit Roy did his graduation from Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur India , Post-graduate and Ph.D from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India.
After serving Central Mine Planning and Design Institute, India for 27 years as Opencast Mining Planner, he is presently with Birla Institute of Technology ( BIT), Mesra India. He is responsible for study of Mine Slope Stability on almost all major opencast Coal and Lignite mines of India for last thirty years. His slope failure predictions and warnings have saved fatal accidents in major open cast Coal and Lignite mine of India.
He has contributed more than 50 technical papers in national and international journals and seminars. He was invited by “Office of the Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, USA”, “Missouri University of Science & Technology”, USA and Disaster Prevention Research Institute of Kyoto University, JAPAN to deliver lecture on challenges of slope stability in Surface Coal and Lignite Mines of India. He was selected by DAAD to supervise the internship of a German student of Berlin Technical University.
