Abstract: The south west coastal zone of Bangladesh has been affected by rampant water logging due to vulnerable climate, silted rivers and stumpy terrain; and introduction of IWRM and TRM at some places of the zone has substantially safe- guarded the circumstance. This study aims to assess the benefits achieved due to implementation of IWRM in parts of Khulna and Jessore districts, and investigate some technical aspects evolving TRM. Analyses have been carried out using satellite images, RS and GIS technology, Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and field investigations. A mathemati- cal formulation has been made to assess rate of tidal sedimentation due to TRM and selection strategies of tidal basins. The study comes up with evidences of considerable advancements in regional livelihood i.e. flood resistance, cultivated lands, cultivable area, cropping intensities and food security due to IWRM. Moreover, the technical facts established on TRM would help planners to have vivid perception regarding the process Journal: Journal of Water Resource and Protection, 2013, 5, 953-961 URL:    


Abstract: An investigation is conducted to study the possibility of using selected silica deposits of Bangladesh as standard sand in testing compressive strength of hydraulic cements. To this end, silica sands collected from geo-referenced Dupi Tila formation of Bangladesh located near to ground surface were mechanically and chemically processed to remove physical and chemical impurities. Collected deposits show uniformity in grain size and mineralogical composition. X-ray diffraction analysis was conducted to determine chemical composition. Shape and surface morphology of the grains were observed in Scanning Electron Microscope. Cement cubes prepared using the sand samples were compared with those prepared with Ottawa sand in ASTM standard for compressive strength assessment. Finally strength correlations for the samples obtained after mechanical and chemical processing were established, which show close and dependable resemblance with Ottawa sand.
