He worked in Central Road Research Institute, Airports Authority of India and was a member of the Highway Research Board of Indian Roads Congress, and is associated with development of codes for pavement design. He works extensively on reliability and risk assessment of civil engineering systems, ground improvement, geosynthetics, and sustainability. He is currently the President, Indian Geotechnical Society. He is also the Governor for ASCE Region 10. He has contributed significantly in internationally and published about 250 papers in the area. He is the Chairman of Technical Committee on Forensic Geotechnical Engineering of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. He is recipient of many awards and distinctions nationally and internationally. Prof. Prithvi Singh Kandhal is Associate Director Emeritus of the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) based at Auburn University, Alabama. NCAT is the largest asphalt road technology center in the world. Prior to joining NCAT in 1988, he served as Chief Asphalt Road Engineer of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for 17 years. He has held three national and international prestigious positions: President, Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists (with members from around the world); Chairman, American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International Committee on Road Paving Standards (responsible for over 200 standards used worldwide); and Chairman, US Transportation Research Board Committee on Asphalt Roads. Prof. Kandhal has published over 120 technical papers and has coauthored the first ever textbook on asphalt road technology. In 2011, he was inducted on the Wall of Honour established at the largest asphalt road research center in the United States.
