Advances in Water Resources Engineering and Management - Select Proceedings of TRACE 2018


This book comprises select papers presented at the International Conference on Trends and Recent Advances in Civil Engineering (TRACE 2018). The book covers inter-disciplinary research and applications in integrated water resource management, river ecology, irrigation system, water pollution and treatment, hydraulic structure and hydro-informatics. The topics on water resource management include technological intervention and solution for climate change impacts on water resources, water security, clean water to all, sustainable water reuse, flood risk assessment, interlinking of rivers and hydro policy. The contents of this book will be useful to researchers and professionals working in the field of water resource management and related policy making. 

Dr. Rafid AlKhaddar has extensive experience in Water and Environmental Engineering, with special expertise in wastewater treatment methods.  He graduated from the University of Basra, Iraq as a civil engineer, and obtained his Masters and PhD in Civil Engineering Hydraulics from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK. He is currently Professor and Head of the Department of Civil Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University where he manages 27 staff and over 780 students, who are enrolled in various courses such as HNC, BEng, MEng, MSc and PhD. He has maintained a very strong link with the UK Water and Environmental industry in order to stay involved with any new developments in the aforementioned fields. He was the President of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) in 2015-16. He is also a Fellow of the Institution and an Honorary Vice President of the Institution. He has published over 160 articles in peer-reviewed journals and international conferences. 
Dr. Ram Karan Singh is Professor of Civil Engineering in King Khalid University, Abha City, Kingdom of Saudi-Arabia. He has over 28 years of teaching, research and administrative experience in top institutions and universities in India and abroad. He completed his B.E.(Hons.) Civil Engineering, M.E. in Civil Engineering (with specialization in Hydraulics Engineering), and PhD in the area of hydraulics and water resources engineering from  BITS-Pilani, Pilani, India. He was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Japanese Government from 2002-2004 to carry out 'Diffuse pollution modeling of water environment of Japanese low land watersheds' at the Department of Hydraulics Engineering, NIRE, Tsukuba Science City, Japan. He has published over 150 research papers, four books and also supervised 10 PhD thesis. He is a recipient of several national and international awards and fellow of various professional societies in his area of work.
Dr. Subashisa Dutta received his Ph.D in Computational Hydraulics from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur. He completed his Master's in Irrigation and Hydraulics Engineering and Bachelor's in Civil Engineering from Sambalpur University. Currently, he is Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology(IIT) Guwahati. He has worked at the Scientist Space Applications Centre (ISRO), Ahmedabad prior to joining IIT Guwahati. His major research interests are hill-slope hydrology, distributed hydrological modeling, flood inundation modeling, geo-spatial technology, 2D river flow, sediment transport modeling, river bank protection and stormwater drainage design. He is leading multiple research works by Inland Waterways Authority of India. He is also working on dam break analysis of hydroelectric projects in Assam, India. 
Dr. Madhuri Kumari received her PhD from The Energy Resource Institute (TERI) for her work on geostatistical modeling for prediction of rainfall in the Indian Himalayas. She completed her Master's in Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering from Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University in 1999, and Bachelor's in Civil Engineering from Andhra University in 1997 and was recipient of Gold Medal. She is working as Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Amity School of Engineering and Technology, Amity University, Noida, India. She has a vast industry experience of 11 years and an academic experience of 9 years. Her research works in the area of rainfall modeling have been published in reputed journals. Her research interests include application of geographical information system in solving problems related to water resources engineering.
