14th Structural Engineering Convention

The 14th Structural Engineering Convention (SEC-2024) will be held at the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NITT) under the aegis of the Indian Association for Structural Engineering (IASE). It is a biennial event pioneered by the CSIR-Structural Engineering Research Centre (CSIR-SERC), Chennai and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras in 1997, and since then, it has successfully completed thirteen conventions nationwide. SEC brings together academia, industry and research laboratories and aims to provide an international platform for the dissemination of the latest research findings in the field of Structural Engineering. Even though it has been biennial since 2008, it was held consecutively in 2022 and 2023 to compensate for its suspension in 2020 due to COVID-19. IASE has decided to keep up with the tradition of holding it in the even years, and that brings us to SEC-2024.


The main objective of SEC-2024 is to promote and enable a safe and sustainable construction sector in India. The conference will feature traditional paper presentations by research scholars around the world, keynote speeches by invited speakers and several discussions addressing the state-of-the-art technologies and future challenges in Structural Engineering. The latest developments in the analysis and design of novel/traditional materials and systems will be presented, for a wide range of structural applications.
