Use of Drone & UAVs in Advancing Civil Engineering
Right after 16 years of Wright Brothers built the first plane, Drones and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)  were developed. They were used in world wars for bombing and many things. As time passed drones provided images and views of inaccessible or difficult to navigate location.

Drones and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Use:

Drones have also emerged in Civil Engineering fieldwork for:

  • Surveying
  • Aerial imaging 
  • In creating interactive 3D or topographical map
  • To find the volume of the catchment area
  • To inspect work progress

And, yes this helps in solving any issues with saving time and cost of surveyors for surveying. Many construction sites are already heavily dependent on the use of drones where the entire site in just in a few minutes, whereas in the past took several weeks or months too.

Great Man-Made River (GMR)

Libya's Great Man Made River: The Great Man-Made River in Libya is one of the most ambitious Civil Engineering Project in history of mankind.  In the year 1953, the Libya Government found out not only vast oil reserves but also vast quantity of fresh water locked under the strata, most of the water was trapped around 7000-30000 years ago which is divided in 4 different basins. The first basin is named Kufra basin which is neat Egypt Border which covers almost 35000 sq kilometer which is quite deep around 2000 m deep. The other basin is in Sirte Basin which cover 10000 sq kilometer, third in Murzuk Basin and the last in Jabal Fezzan Basin covering 4800 sq kilometers area.  The GMR project will be used to transfer water to North of the country to provide water for irrigation purpose for more than 6 million  people. This will be a changing point  for Libya and the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi called it the Eighth Wonder of World. The work started in 1984 of the project and estimated to be
