Prof. Sitharam’s contribution is in the area geotechnical earthquake engineering in particular local site effects to ascertain the effect of local soils on the buildings during an earthquake and its response to shaking.
He has carried out microzonation of Bangalore, Lucknow (in Indo-Gangetic belt) and advised on microzonation of Delhi. He has addressed strain-dependent nonlinearity effects on soils, liquefaction and post-liquefaction behavior of sandy soils, Acceleration time history at the ground surface and the response spectra.
Other research areas: Ground improvement, Geosynthetics, foundation engineering, Jointed rock mass studies, Coastal reservoirs, Shock waves in granular media, Numerical modeling. Earth and tailing dams.
