Dr K G Bhatia, is a well known research scientist in the field of Structural Dynamics, and an expert in the profession of Machine Foundation Design, Seismic Qualification, Failure Analysis, Weight Optimization. He has over 35 years of industry experience. Dr Bhatia has carried out machine foundation design and conducted field studies on many machines and their foundations for various projects. It is this rich experience which Dr Bhatia has brought out in form a Handbook (see below). He shares this experience with Practising Engineers, Students, Academicians, Researchers and Industry in general during such training programs and Workshops. The program covers basic fundamentals of vibration analysis, modeling, analysis and design aspects. Various Case Studies of real life machines, problems and solutions backed up by field measurements are also discussed.
