I do not anything about this forum. In fact I never heard of it even. Please inform me where its HQ is, when it has been established and who have established the forum. I am associated with many associations of structural engineers like IIBE, IABSE, ISET and IstructE-India. Nobody ever told me about SEFI. I have never come across any publication of this forum even. Please let me know procedures of registering membership. I shall become life member.

Dear Gautam Sir,

I don't know whether SEFI is a registered body or not...but the thing is it is a platform floated by the admins of this group (M/s Alpa Sheth of VMS consultants and Mr Rajeev of Phoenix webtech are the ones I know of).

It is basically an online platform for technical discussions amongst fellow engineers usually regarding to structural engineering, site related problems etc. It is also a tool to share the problems faced by engineers and the solutions provided by engineers who have encountered similar problems before.

It is a non-hierarchical group. No one is president, no one is treasurer, no one is general secretary etc.

It is a online platform for two way discussions amongst fellow engineers.

SEFI as a group have not published papers simply because it is a collection of individuals and does not represent anybody. Though I might add that some of the best brains in this country who have written countless research papers are part of this group.

The contribution demanded is voluntary and not a 'Membership Fee' or 'Registration fee' as demanded by some of the groups that you have mentioned.

SEFI is a group which uses the power of the internet for maximum benefit of its members with regards to enhancing their professional knowledge at virtually no material costs.

Hope I have been able to give my views clearly.

Regards,
Debayan

  Dear Alpa Madam,

My small contribution has been sent to you via online transfer.

My amount is small but my support is sincere.

And for the others who are commenting that they are not happy that SEFI is asking for contributions either because server upgradation is not the only issue or the time is not ripe, I have just one thing to say. Please don't contribute. Nobody is putting a gun to your head and asking you to contribute. It is just a simple request from the admins side. Even if your contribution is not there I am sure you will still enjoy full support from the SEFI website if they reach their target irrespective of whether certain individuals have contributed or not.

It is best if people refrain from giving reasons as to why they are NOT contributing.

I am using this site for close to three years now and I know whats its worth.

Regards,
Debayan

Dear Er ,

Sefi is beneficial to one and all .Every engineer has lauded its role--irrespective
of fact whether he is fresher or veteran.

A strange remark from your end .Can you kindly enlighten why it is not worth to you.

Contribution to sefi is only voluntary, but thankfulness is also a form of contribution.

best wishes  

vikramjeet




Dear Sefi,
Stil nw i did not fond Sefi.org as worth to myself, wen ever i feel up to tat level i wil contribute.

Chandrashekar

Regarding SEFI( As I know during on- line discussions these years)

Dear Sir

Er Debyan has already provided the information but to supplement further,


I think sefi, the Structural Engineering Forum of India, is a registered body  
for on-line discussions on structural/civil engineering matters.
It is absolutely free and contribution offered are voluntary.
It was started by a group of three Engineers ,aftermath of Bhuj EQ
(they also interct in forum time to time)
namely Prof SK Jain , Madam Alpa Sheth and Mr Pankaj Gupta.They  
have spent/spending lot of time and money for this noble cause and we  
must be highly grateful to them as also to Mr Rajeev , Admin .

Presently 8500+ engineers on on - line discussions,  

Some top Eminent sefi members with experience of over four / five decades
are Dr N Subramanian, Prof AR Chadrasekhar, Prof Ajit Bhattacharya,  
Prof KG Bhatia, Sh UH Varyani , Sh Indrjeet Barua Sh Umesh Rao
and some more.

No Publications , since It is only a discussion forum.

Inception since Jan 2003, aftermath of Gujarat EQ

Purpose : On line Knowledge sharing in very frank and free environment
especially aimed for safe(though economical) design of structures,
construction problems etc.

Registration - - On line

Admin may kindly correct anything not spelt correctly.


best regards

vikramjeet

Subject: [SEFI] Time to give back to SEFI



Dear All:

SEFI subscribers have swelled to over 8500 . I do not think there is any structural engineering associationwhich has had such a meteoric rise as SEFI. And this has been because of the democratic, inclusive and non- hierarchical model of SEFI. This is a big achievement for each one of us personally. It shows healthy interest in our country towards structural engineering. The diversity in subjects discussed has increased over the years. Some of the discussions are of exceptional quality. There is also a laudable tolerance in the group for accommodating the very banal comment alongwith the most insightful one.

Until now, we have a loyal group of three who pay Rs 20,000 per year and another member who pays Rs 10,000 p.a. Together, they are the backbone of SEFI funding without which we would have folded up a long time ago. Besides these four members, we have about 10-15 members paying between 2000-5000 per year. We have put up the list of contributors on the website. Pl take a moment to see the list. We thank all of these members alongwith those who have paid between Rs 500/ to Rs 2000/-. Your support is crucial for SEFI's survival.

We feel that as the benefits of SEFI are being enjoyed by one and all, it is not fair to burden the same members year on year to keep SEFI running. The expenses have in recent past skyrocketted due to increased subscribers requiring larger meory requirements. We also need to ugrade the server. Funding by the loyalists is not enough to sustain SEFI. We need more funds. URGENTLY. If each and every one of you decides to pay Rs 500/- each, we will build up adequate corpus from who's interest we can sustain SEFI and we will not time and again have to appeal for funds.

I hope all of you will rise to the occassion and donate generously. Rs 500/- is less than what you pay for your family to see a movie in the cinema hall - so let's see all of us for once setting our priorities right. If we donnot get the requisite donations, we may be constrained to bring in some restrictions and limit some of the privileges to paying members only. We do not wish to do it- and will not need to if we get sufficient funds. So please helpus to keep SEFI the way it has always been and the way we all love it.

regards,
Alpa Sheth
