Description of Research Interest

Prem Pal Bansal research interest are in retrofitting and rehabilitation of various structure elements i.e. beam, column, and beam column joint. He is interested in developing the various retrofitting techniques to improve the performance of retrofitted structures. He accomplish a project sponsored by DST entitled   "Rehabilitation of RC Bridge Girders with Externally Pre-stressed Fibre Composites". Presently, he is working on retrofitting of beam column joint by ultra-high performance concrete.  He is also involved extensively in consultancy projects and associate in various government project.
