Professor Buddhima Indraratna (UOW)
Professor Buddhima Indraratna has pioneered research on both rail geotechnics and road embankments on soft soil in Australian academia since early 1990s. I was instrumental in the successful bid for the first CRC for Railway Engineering in 1999 (Federal Government initiative) and became the founding Director of Centre for Geomechanics and Railway Engineering. My contributions through research to innovative design and construction practices in rail track engineering and problematic ground improvement for stabilising transport infrastructure and have made a significant impact worldwide. My career is characterized by research excellence, close collaboration with industry and the implementation of innovative research-based solutions. Over two decades, my research encompasses a wide spectrum of applications from theory to practice, particularly in transportation geomechanics. I have developed an international reputation for: a) conceptualisation and design innovation for stabilising rail and road embankments built over soft foundations; b) novel analytical techniques and design procedures for high speed rail tracks capturing the role of ballast degradation, track confinement and subgrade deformation; c) dams and embankment design and associated filtration and drainage; d) analysis of jointed and porous media and stability implications on transport infrastructure. The above contributions have been instrumental in changing the often conservative industry practices, including revisions to some Australian Standards. http://www.iloveengineering.org
