He has provided an outstanding contribution to the eld of concrete design and construction. Rangan s career spans 50 years with 40 years being spent in Australia. His early postings as a postdoctoral fellow were to the Council of Scienti c and Industrial Research Coimbatore, India and the Indian Institute of Science. In 1970, he headed to the University of NSW where he was lecturer then senior lecturer of civil engineering until 1990. Rangan then headed to Western Australia to head up the School of Engineering at Curtin University of Technology, and in 2005 became the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Computing. He is presently the Emeritus Professor of Civil Engineering at Curtin University. During his career, Rangan devoted 25 years to developing the Australian Concrete Standard. He was an active member of the Concrete Structures standard committee starting from 1970s for more than 25 years. His work in shear design and other sections of the code forms the cornerstone of the code, and are still in use today. His pioneering work in shear and torsion are among the top in this eld.
