Research Groups

In the growing department of Civil engineering following Research Groups are establishing the research activities. Research groups are formed based on the expertise and working capacity of individual members. The prime objective of each group is to address the National and regional level issues related to Civil engineering. We have departmental and collaborative research groups.

  1. Departmental research groups
  1. Materials and Concrete Engineering Group (MCEG)
  2. Structural Engineering Group (SEG)
  3. Transportation Engineering Group (TEG)
  4. Geotechnical Engineering Group (GEG)
  5. Hydraulics and Water Resource Engineering Group (HWREG)
  6. Engineering Management Group (EMG)

1. Materials and Concrete Engineering Group (MCEG)

Research Areas:

The Concrete Materials Research Group is involved in the study of all properties of concrete from the nanoscale to full size, both in the lab and in the real world. Current areas of research focus on the development and application of models for predicting the service life and life-cycle costs of reinforced concrete structures. Research also examines development and application of test methods to evaluate permeability, development and evaluation of multi-component cementitious systems for use in a wide range of severe exposures. Our group actively participates can prepare and test chemical, mineralogical, physical, and durability properties of concretes and their constituent materials.

Group Members:

  • Dr. Sadam Hussain
  • Engr. Babar Ali
  • Engr. Fayyaz ul Haq
  • Engr. Shad Muhammad
  • Engr. Waqar Ahsan

2. Structural Engineering Group (SEG)

Research Areas:

Our research group mainly focuses on the use of modern and innovative techniques for design and construction of different structures/ structure members. Now a days various waste materials like rubber, plastics, glass etc and mineral admixtures like rice husk ash, bagasse ash etc are used as partial replacement of cement/ aggregate in concrete/mortar. Our group focuses on the use of these wastes in concrete to modify/enhance different characteristics of concrete. Also, advancements related to earthquake engineering design will be incorporated. Performance based design and different issues regarding structural stability will be covered.

Group Members:

  • Engr. Shad Muhammad
  • Engr. Fayyaz ul Haq
  • Engr. Babar Ali
  • Dr. Sadam Hussain
  • Engr. Waqar Ahsan

3. Transportation Engineering Group (TEG)

Research Areas:

Transport infrastructure consists of the fixed installations including roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals and pipelines and terminals. Roads were simply recognizable routes without any formal constructional maintenance. Automobiles provide high flexibility with low capacity, but require high energy and are the main source of noise and air pollution in cities. Water transport is movement by means of a watercraft such as a barge, boat, ship or sailboat over a body of water. The need for buoyancy is common to watercraft, making the hull a dominant aspect of its construction, maintenance and appearance. Although Transport by water is significantly less costly than air transport for transcontinental shipping, short sea shipping and ferries remain viable in coastal areas.

4. Geotechnical Engineering Group (GEG)

Research Areas:

Welcome to the Geotechnical Engineering research group at CUI Sahiwal the research group focus is on finding cost effective and sustainable ways of improving engineering properties of foundation soils to ensure safety and reliability of civil engineering projects. The group undertakes research activities in the areas of ground improvement, geo-synthetics, soil testing (both laboratory and in-situ testing), soil-structure interaction and numerical analyses. The research group has outstanding facilities for laboratory experimental research, field experimental research and numerical modeling

Group Members:

  • Dr. Usama Khalid
  • Engr. Yousaf Mushtaq
  • Engr. H.M. Sohaib
  • Engr. Umar Mehmood

5. Hydraulics and Water Resource Engineering Group (HWREG)

Research Areas:

Water is life, especially in a developing country like Pakistan, water is a fuel to agriculture based economy. Optimal use water resources will not only ensure economy prosperity but will also protect against floods which may cause enormous losses in terms of life and economy.
Water Resources Engineering Research group is working for the betterment of water resources in developing countries and also engaged in other international research activities abroad on demand basis routine.

Group Members:

  • Engr. Tauqeer Akhtar
  • Engr. Tafheem Abbas
  • Dr. Sadam Hussain
  • Engr. Umar Mehmood

6. Engineering Management Group (EMG)

Research Areas:

We have expertise in the management, coordination and integration of activities, resources and information required for design and manufacture through-life: from identification of a need and the initial conception of an idea through to remanufacture and disposal in order to oversee the operational performance of complex engineering driven enterprises.

Group Members:

  • Engr. Tafheem Abbas Gillani
  • Engr. Shad Muhammad
  • Dr. Usama Khalid
  • Engr. Hiba Arshad
  • Engr. Umar Mehmood
