Personal profile

Biography

Shazzad joined COFS as a Research Associate in 2008 immediately after the completion of his PhD on ‘New mechanism-based design approaches for spudcan foundations on clays’ from the same territory. Shazzad completed a Master of Engineering (Civil) by research from Curtin University of Technology, Australia. Shazzad then worked as a Research Associate in the Department of Civil Engineering, Curtin University of Technology, Australia for six months.
Shazzad completed his Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Civil) from Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology, Bangladesh in 1999. Following graduation he served as a Lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering, Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology, Bangladesh for two years.

Industrial relevance

The results from my study provide a major advance in terms of rational design methods to assess the cavity depth and spudcan penetration resistance in single and double layer clays, and are directly applicable to stability analysis and site assessment for mobile offshore drilling (jack-up) rigs on corresponding seabed sediments. The outcomes of my research have been fed into the InSafe and ISO guidelines.
