    Abstract: Canal roughness is one of the most sensitive parameter in simulation of irrigation canals. The present study attempted to calibrate the channel roughness coefficient (Manning’s “n” value) along the Thiba main canal reach, through simulation of canal discharges and water depths using HEC-RAS Model. After HEC-RAS model was calibrated and validated us... Show More

    Abstract: An investigation was carried out to assess the water quality parameters of water supplied by Sylhet City Corporation (SCC).The supplied water quality is at risk to deteriorate during its flow through the delivery system and/or due to the possibility of high elemental concentration in ground water. In SCC, there are 23 pumps available that continual... Show More
