PhD

Green Concrete Technology:

The production of OPC is responsible for about 7% of the world’s CO2 emissions, Department is working to develop binders for partially replacing the cement, and develop green concrete. Utilization of wastes materials like recycled aggregates in concrete making without compromising the strength and durability.

Remote sensing for irrigation water requirement: Estimation of water consumption based on ET models using remotely sensed data and ground water fluoride and its associated affected on health and overall economic burden on society.

Utilization of  waste material as binder material in pavements

 Attempts have been made to utilize fly ash from thermal power stations and lime sludge from drinking water treatment plants as a binder material for flexible pavement. This composite was able to achieve the target strengths set by the Indian Road Congress and Electric Power Research Institute (USA).

Remediation of Industrial effluent Adsorption studies for the removal of copper using different types of bio-absorbents, bio-geo composites and bio-composites.
