The Roorkee Chapter of the Indian Geotechnical Society invites all individuals and organizations engaged in the advancement and novel applications of Geotechnical Engineering to share their experiences at the Indian Geotechnical Conference 2023


The Indian National Society of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering was established in the year 1948, soon after the second International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering held at Rotterdam. The Society was affiliated to the International Society in the same year and since then it has strived to fulfil and promote the objectives of the International Society. In December 1970, the name, Indian Geotechnical Society (IGS) was adopted. In January 1994, it hosted XIII International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering. Various Local Chapters of the IS organise annual conferences of the Society.


Indian Geotechnical Society, Roorkee Chapter Indian Geotechnical Society, Roorkee Chapter was established in 1972, with Prof. Dinesh Mohan, the then Director, Central Building Research Institute, as its founder Chairman. Subsequently eminent geotechnical engineers headed this chapter and brought laurels to the entire geotechnical community.

The IGS Roorkee chapter has always been active since its inception and contributing in the area of Geotechnical Engineering. IGS Roorkee chapter hosted the Indian Geotechnical Conferences in 1985, 2003, and 2013.
