About the Conference

Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies. Civil engineering comprises many disciplines and in the recent years many sub disciplines have been emerging. Civil engineering is concerned with the overall interface of human created fixed projects with the greater world. General civil engineers work closely with surveyors and specialized civil engineers to fit and serve fixed projects within their given site, community and terrain by designing grading, drainage, pavement, water supply, sewer service, electric and communications supply, and land divisions. General engineers spend much of their time visiting project sites, developing community consensus, and preparing construction plans.

Editorial

With an increasing sophistication and increasing luxury on the face of materialism, the human race is striving for state of the art infrastructure for its every social institution. The role of civil engineering is prominent in this context. Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering,[4] and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering,[4] surveying, and construction engineering.[6]

General civil engineering is referred to as site engineering, a branch of civil engineering that primarily focuses on converting a tract of land from one usage to another. Civil engineers typically apply the principles of geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering and construction engineering to residential, commercial, and industrial and public works projects of all sizes and levels of construction. Structural engineering is concerned with the structural design and structural analysis of buildings, bridges, towers, flyovers, tunnels, off shore structures like oil and gas fields in the sea, and other structures. This involves identifying the loads which act upon a structure and the forces and stresses which arise within that structure due to those loads, and then designing the structure to successfully support and resist those loads. The loads can be self weight of the structures, other dead load, live loads, moving (wheel) load, wind load, earthquake load, load from temperature change etc. Another aspect of Civil engineering is materials science. Material engineering deals with ceramics such as concrete, mix asphalt concrete, metals Focus around increased strength, metals such as aluminum and steel, and polymers such as polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and carbon fibers. Geo technical and environmental engineering also plays an important role in it. In dealing with the rise scarcity of the natural resources like water Civil Engineering steer it in a different form called Water Resource Engineering. As the area is broad and requires cross functionally expert reviewers for technical scrutiny of the papers, we have tried to impart justice to all the paper in its publication in the proceeding. In all sense we have been transcendental in this field in developing the fauna of the conference.. In meeting the professional commitments we maintained the sanctity by adhering to ethics, ontology and semiotics. I beg apology for any inconveniency caused to the participants and delegates in the journey of this conference. I have regards for the IRNet family members, reviewers, and support staffs for their generous gifts of time, energy and effort. Specifically I owe indebtedness to the authors for their intellectual contributions in this conference. I wish this conference to become a grand success. Thanks and Regards Prof. R. K.
