Anurag has published more than 60 papers, contributed to three textbooks and is a reviewer for several technical journals.

Anurag Jain, an expert in earthquake and wind engineering and structural dynamics, has more than 20 years of experience designing, analyzing and investigating structures for extreme loads. He is a key member of the firm’s investigations and forensic engineering team.

Sophisticated Solutions
Anurag has investigated the damage and/or collapse of more than 4,000 structures caused by natural and man-made forces such as extreme winds, earthquakes, fires, lightning, construction-induced vibrations and defects, design omissions and corrosion. Some of these investigations include buildings damaged by hurricanes Charley, Katrina, Wilma, Ike and CAT-90 Sandy in the United States and Cyclone Yasi in Australia. He has also performed investigations related to the 1989 Loma Preita and 1994 Northridge earthquakes in the U.S. and the 1999 Turkey, 2010 Chile and 2010-11 Canterbury Earthquake Sequence in Christchurch, New Zealand. For these evaluations, he also performed extensive computer modeling and sophisticated analysis to assess the causes of structural performance failures and to design retrofits.

Technical Contributions
Known for his knowledge of wind engineering, Anurag has performed wind analyses of many structures, including high-rise buildings, airports, hotels, medical facilities and stadiums. The computer program he developed for his doctoral thesis on coupled flutter and buffeting analysis of long-span bridges has been used successfully to estimate the wind-induced response of several major bridges. It was used to predict and validate wind effects on the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Japan, the longest suspension bridge in the world, and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California.

Outside of Work
A travel enthusiast, Anurag especially enjoys visiting places known for its natural beauty. Scenic landscapes also provide a good source of inspiration for another of his hobbies: photography. In addition, Anurag is committed to developing the next generation of engineering professionals. He has been mentoring his son’s elementary school class for six years, since the students were in kindergarten.
