INTRODUCTION

Floods have been a recurring menace in India, causing deaths and destruction besides disruption of normal life with substantial economical loss. Rashtriya Barh Ayog estimated 40 million hectares of land in the country as flood-prone, of which 14.37 Mha only have been provided with reasonable degree of flood protection. On an average floods affect an area of about 7.5 million hectares per year. The computation and management of floods are crucial issues in mitigation of such disaster. For minimizing the losses due to floods, various flood control measures are adopted. The flood control measures termed as “Flood Management” could be either structural measures or nonstructural measures. Wise application of engineering science has afforded ways of mitigating the ravages due to floods and providing reasonable measure of protection to life and property. As per the National Water Policy 2012 :  Adequate flood-cushion should be provided in water storage projects, wherever feasible, to facilitate better flood management”.  Every effort should be made to avert water related disasters like floods and droughts through Structural and Non-structural measures.  Communities need to be involved in preparing an action plan for dealing with the flood / drought situations. Again draft National Water Policy 2012 states “While every effort should be made to avert water related disasters like floods and droughts, through structural and non-structural measures, emphasis should be on preparedness for flood / drought with coping mechanisms as an option. Greater emphasis should be placed on rehabilitation of natural drainage system”. In highly flood-prone areas, flood control needs to be given overriding consideration in reservoir regulation policy even at the cost of sacrificing some irrigation or power benefits. Besides, increased emphasis should be laid on non – structural measures such as flood forecasting and warning, flood plain zoning and flood proofing for the minimizing of losses and to reduce the recurring expenditure on flood relief. There should be strict regulation of settlements and economic activity in the flood plain zones along with flood proofing, to minimize the loss of life and property. The flood – forecasting activities should be modernized, value – added and extended to other uncovered areas. Inflow forecasting to reservoirs should be instituted for their effective regulation”. Management of floods in the Indian situation has to be organized adopting these guidelines and as per the flood contingency plans formulated by the respective States from time to time.

INTRODUCTION
 
India has the largest irrigated area ahead of China and USA but is lagging behind these countries in food production. Though irrigation sector’s contribution to agriculture and GDP of the nation is undisputed, there have been serious concerns over its poor performance. Stagnated agriculture has emerged as a challenge during recent years in India’s otherwise progressive performance.
 
To address the major challenges of securing water to meet increasing food production demands of the expanding population, while safe-guarding the critical ecological balance, it is necessary to adopt technological innovations with integrated approach to irrigation water management. These include analyzing the interactions between the adoption and adaptation of irrigation systems to plant and field level options, innovations like water harvesting, micro irrigation, atomistic irrigation, conjunctive management of different water sources, institutional reforms and management methodologies.
 
In a comprehensive review of Indian irrigation sector in 1991, World Bank cautioned that India will be critically dependent on a better performance from irrigation sector. It thus identified capacity building in irrigation systems management as one of the thrust areas. The future sustainability of Irrigation Systems will largely depend upon the needed improvements and innovations in this sector in the form of Modernization in its real sense.

INTRODUCTION

The success of most of the projects being taken up with huge budget outlay in Irrigation, Hydro Power, Power Transmission & Distribution Lines, Highways, Water Supply & Sanitation, Construction, and Agriculture sectors depends on the adequate investigation and data collection efforts. Surveying forms the most important component of the investigation. Several States in the country are taking up projects at enormous costs to be completed in phases within short periods. Many of such are time-bound projects funded by Govt. of India and other international agencies. Large projects are also taken up in the areas of Water supply and with external aid from agencies like World Bank, NABARD etc.. The planning and design of all engineering projects are based upon surveying measurements. Moreover, during execution, the project of any magnitude is constructed along the lines and points established by surveying. Thus surveying is a basic requirement for all engineering projects. Mapping of above projects primarily those in Irrigation sector has emerged as a major activity of basic importance in the country, mainly because of its relation to inputs of water and production of food. In all the projects, investigation precedes the rest of activities. Investigations mean large scale mapping at micro-level with heights/ contours and also other salient features of the area under consideration. Spatial data can be captured rapidly and accurately using Total Station Surveying Instruments. Differential Global Positioning Systems and Total Stations have emerged as a modern standard, affordable, viable digital methodologies for large-scale surveys all over the world. It is in this context that ESCI has planned the programme of familiarizing the participants with the use of Total station and DGPS in Project investigations.

INTRODUCTION

Dams have been constructed for millennia, influencing the lives of humans and the ecosystems they inhabit. Gravity dams are solid concrete structures that maintain their stability against design loads from the geometric shape, mass and strength of the concrete. In the design of gravity dams, it is essential to determine the loads required for its stability. The structural response of material to different loads determines as to how it can economically be utilized in the design process. The large amount of water stored in a dam makes its failure to be catastrophic. Design and execution are very crucial for this kind of structures. Exceptional loadings must be taken in account during design phase, to take care of its highly destructive potential and social importance. Earthquake is one such natural disaster that has claimed many lives and destroyed lots of property, thus necessitating seismic analysis of concrete gravity dams. Many concrete gravity dams have been in service for over 60 years. Over this period many advancements in the methodologies and safety procedures have come in to vogue. Older existing dams often fail to meet these revised evaluation processes and norms. Safety criteria and structural rehabilitation to meet such criteria for these old structures may be costly and difficult. Traditional design procedure (also known as the pseudo-static or seismic coefficient method) was applied worldwide in dam design. Though, this procedure was an excellent for its time, as it provided a basis for computing earthquake forces, in the design of dams”. However, the well studied example of Koyna Dam subjected to the 1967 earthquake, demonstrated that the assumptions made in the traditional design procedure may underestimate earthquake forces, and lead to structural failure. The seismic safety of dams has been a serious concern since then which has been regarded as a watershed event in the development of seismic analysis and design of concrete gravity dams all over the world. Dams are particularly different from other types of structures, since stress analysis of these structures has to take into account dynamic response of the complete system interaction involving Dam Reservoir and Foundation.

INTRODUCTION
 
After the approval of the Detailed Project Report, the next step is the procurement to fix up the contracting agency for implementation of the project to the requirements specified including the quality.
Many of the problems in the Management and Administration of Contracts arise from the attitude of the owner’s engineers and the contractor towards each other and to the work. Though both the parties appreciate that they have a common objective of completing the work within the time specified and the rates quoted. It is imperative that during the implementation of the contract, both have to work towards fulfillment of the objectives.
It will be in the best interest of the project that the Contract Management is handled by the owner or the appropriate authority with tact and care without getting into unnecessary disputes with the contractor or allowing undue benefits or advantages to him. The whole process should be gone through under the provisions of the Indian Contract Act, 1872 (amended by Act No.4 of 2003) and The Arbitration & Conciliation Act 1996.
The price of good Contract Implementation is indeed Eternal Vigilance.
The quality is one of the three key factors, the other two being time and cost for any construction project.

INTRODUCTION

According to ISO 9000 : 2000, Project is a unique process, consisting of a set of coordinated and controlled activities to achieve objectives conforming to specific requirements, within constraints of time, cost and resources. Project Management involves planning, organizing, monitoring, controlling and reporting of all aspects of a Project and the notification of all those involved in it to achieve the project objectives. The software applications are designed to assist project managers in effective project management The Software creates critical path schedules, which can be resource levelled. Resource (men, machinery and materials) can be shared between projects using a shared resource pool. Each resource can have its own calendar which defines on what days and in which shifts a resource is available. The Software also creates budget based on assignment work and resource rates. As resources are assigned to tasks and assignment work estimated, the Software calculates the cost which equals the work times the rate. This rolls up to the task level, then to any summary tasks and finally to the project level. The Software is extended with Project Server and Project Web Access. Project server stores data in a central database. Project Web Access allows user to display and update this data over the Internet. Web Access allows authorised users to access a Project Server database across the Internet. It includes timesheets, graphical analysis of resource workloads and administrative tools. The Software recognises different classes of users. These different classes of users can have different access levels to projects views and other data. Custom objects such as calendars, views, tables, filters and fields are stored in an enterprise global database, which is shared by all the concerned users.
