Dr. M. M. Babar has 26 years experience as a researcher. Areas of interest include design of hydraulic structures i.e. dams, barrages, spillways, canal design and their relevant structures. Analysis and hydraulic computations of dams, energy dissipaters and stilling basin, canals and barrage design for surface and sub-surface flow conditions are of main concentration. Design of various irrigation methods, specifically sprinkler and drip systems are of interest. Flood and drought management. Know-how and experience also relate to studies on sediment load transport in rivers, design of canals/channels with sediment-laden flows and computer modeling of open channels and groundwater flows.
