Valorisation of Recycled Waste Materials in development of Self Compacting Concrete


Event Overview
Engineers Australia’s Structural College Board is pleased to announce that DR. P. Mahakavi is the recipient of the R W Chapman Medal 2020. In recognition of this significant achievement the board have invited Mahakavi to present a webinar on his winning journal submission. By attending you will learn about making sustainable concrete, recycled course aggregate and

To make environmental friendly construction and to minimize the cost of the construction and to make sustainable concrete, an attempt has been made in this study to investigate the suitability of the effect of Recycled Coarse Aggregate (RCA) as partial and full replacement of coarse aggregate from 0% to 100%, industrial by-products such as foundry sand and M-sand as partial replacement of fine aggregate from 0% to 25% and 0% to 100% respectively with silica fume on SCC.


R W Chapman Medal
The medal was first awarded in 1935 and perpetuates the memory of Sir Robert Chapman, a former Professor of Engineering at the University of Adelaide and a member of the inaugural Council of the Institution. He was Chairman of the former Adelaide Division in 1920 and was President of the Institution in 1922.

The Medal is awarded for the best paper in the structural field, published in an Australian Journal (but with special consideration to the Internationally recognised Australian Journal of Structural Engineering) in the previous calendar year. It must also satisfy the award criteria.


Who should attend?

Structural and civil engineers and people working in related disciplines.



Dr. P. Mahakavi
Dr. P. Mahakavi completed a Bachelor of Civil Engineering, a Masters in Structural Engineering and a Ph. D in Civil Engineerring from Anny University. Mahakavi has over eight years experience in teaching engineering and is currently an Assistant Professor at the Amity School of Engineering and Technology, at Amity University Madhya Pradesh, India.

Mahakavi is a widely published author and regularly organisers workshops and conferences in India and internationally. Mahakavi has been invited to guest lecture at many of India’s premiere institutions. In addition to receiving the R W Chapman Medal Makahavi was the recipient of the Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Best Faculty Award 2021 in Structural Engineering.
