Technical Textiles have been used globally for last several decades. These materials have provided innovative engineering solutions for several applications in civil and geotechnical engineering, for infrastructure water resources projects. Even while Technical Textiles have been extensively used in developed as well as many developing countries, India has yet to capitalise the technical, economical and environmental benefits on large scale. Various parts of India are subjected to floods and environmental degradation is the perennial phenomenon. In some of the terrains, the flood management and control can rely on Technical Textiles tubes, containers and bags. Technical Textiles have been found to perform better than concrete as water protection component because of permeability, flexibility and ease of underwater placement. The proposed Seminar will highlight various application areas, best practices and mechanisms for encouraging larger usage of Technical Textile in Water Resources Sector. Also, it will create a platform for all the concerned stakeholders for brain-storming and creating a roadmap to take the Technical Textiles uses to the next level.
