Symposiums

Dr Bhatia has organized two symposiums dedicated to this seismic qualification of plane and machinery.. These symposiums had a reasonable size of international participation.
  1. Symposium on Earthquake Effects on Structures, Plant and Machinery, New Delhi, India, 1996.
  2. Symposium on Earthquake Effects on Plant and Equipment, Hyderabad, India, 1984.
