Surveying

Surveying has existed throughout much of our history. In ancient Egypt, when the Nile River overflowed its banks and washed out farm boundaries, the boundaries were recreated by surveyors using simple geometry. The construction of many of the pyramids, including the Great Pyramids of Giza, built c. 2700 BC, show us that the Egyptians' have always used surveying very efficiently. It has been very important in the development of the human environment since the beginning of recorded history and it is a requirement planning of nearly every form of construction. It’s most common uses are in the fields of transport, building and construction, communications, mapping, and the making of legal boundaries for land ownership. Surveying is the technique and science of accurately finding out the position of points and the distances and angles between them. A person who does the surveying is called a surveyor. In order to find the information they need, surveyors use geometry, engineering, trigonometry, mathematics, physics, and law.

The tools used by surveyors have evolved tremendously. Engineering, especially civil engineering, depends heavily on surveyors. Whenever there are roads, railways, reservoir, dams, pipeline transports retaining walls, bridges or residential areas to be built, surveyors are involved. They establish the boundaries of legal descriptions and the boundaries of various lines of political divisions. They also provide advice and data for geographical information systems (GIS), computer databases that contain data on land features and boundaries. In addition, they must be able to use delicate instruments with accuracy and precision.

With respect to above importance of surveying in construction field, our survey lab is kept well equipped with latest instruments. This particular instrument can be used for conducting survey project of road, railway, bridges or buildings.

Transportation Lab

Transportation engineering is the application of technology and scientific principles to the planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, efficient, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods transport. It is a sub-discipline of civil engineering. Transportation engineering is a major component of the civil engineering.

The planning aspects of transport engineering relate to urban planning, and involve technical forecasting decisions and political factors. Technical forecasting of passenger travel usually involves an urban transportation planning model, requiring the estimation of trip generation (how many trips for what purpose), trip distribution (destination choice, where is the traveler going), and route assignment (which streets or routes are being used).

Transportation engineering, as practiced by civil engineers, primarily involves planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of transportation facilities. The facilities support air, highway, railroad, pipeline, water, and even space transportation. The design aspects of transport engineering include the sizing of transportation facilities (how many lanes or how much capacity the facility has), determining the materials and thickness used in pavement designing the geometry (vertical and horizontal alignment) of the roadway (or track).

Operations and management involve traffic engineering, so that vehicles move smoothly on the road or track. Older techniques include signs, signals, markings, and tolling. Newer technologies involve intelligent transportation systems, including advanced traveler information systems (such as variable message signs), advanced traffic control systems (such as ramp meters), and vehicle infrastructure integration. Human factors are an aspect of transport engineering, particularly concerning driver-vehicle interface and user interface of road signs, signals, and markings.

    Internship at Nimbkar Agricultural Research Institute & Current Job

    Topic of Research - Developing low cost water filtration system for rural households

    The Study

    Safe drinking water is the basic need of human beings. Microbial contamination of drinking water is a major health hazard. According to World Health Organization (WHO) each year diarrheal diseases claim the lives of approximately 760,000 young children throughout the world. There are many types of bacteria, viruses and protozoans responsible for diarrheal diseases with a range of persistence in water, infectious does and health significance. This study aims at solving drinking water related problem of the rural poor.

    This project aims at making 30000-40000 liters of clean drinking water available to rural poor every day, in the nearby villages of Phaltan, Maharashtra. The idea is to pass raw water through 4-5 layers of filters and then sterilizing it by solar energy as well as biomass energy when solar radiation is low.

    The design of such water filtration system involves four stages. The initial stage is designing a pond for storing rainwater and pumping it through a certain head thus delivering it to the filtration plant. The second stage is to filter it through 4-5 layers of filters of size 250 microns to reduce the coliform count which increases the risk of water borne diseases. The next stage is to deliver the filtered water to solar tubular boilers to heat it at 60 degree celcius for inactivating bacterias. The final stage involves supply of treated water to rural households at minimal costs. The capital cost of project came to Rs. 70,00,000/- approximately and therefore the cost of water came to Rs. 0.30 per liter.

    Accomplishments

    During the internship, a feasilibility study was conducted taking into account the following

    • Pond designing
    • Pipe and pump designing
    • Tank and filters designing
    • Designing solar sterilizing system
    • Costing analysis
    News stories on the project appeared in various news lines like Business Standard, Moneylife, Newsgram, Huffington Post, among others. Better India carried a special story on it.
