Parts of Research Paper | How to write a Research Paper? Research paper is a scientific writing that shapes up an idea into words with solid and verifiable evidence. The main goal of a research paper is to assemble different opinions, perspectives, corroborations and facts on a subject matter from various resources like articles, books, other research papers, interviews and elucidate the details and findings in one's own words. The most popular types of research papers are argumentative papers, analytical papers, definition papers, compare and contrast papers, cause and effect papers, reports and interpretive papers.

Hydroelectricity in Nepal | Hydropower Projects in Nepal

Hydroelectricity in Nepal | Hydropower Projects in Nepal There are more than 6000 rivers with a total reach length of 45000 km flowing in our country. They occupy about 3.9 % of the total land of Nepal. The snowy mountains & glacier lakes are also our major water resources. This makes Nepal to be the second richest country in water resources after Brazil in the world. Nepal contains 2.27% water of the total water resource in the world. Due to such resources, we have a huge potential of hydropower production which is theoretically found to be 83000 MW. Out of this, 42000 MW of hydroelectricity is feasible economically & technically.

Public Private Partnership | PPP in Nepal

Public Private Partnership (PPP, 3P or P3) is a frequently pronounced term in the field of infrastructure development & contract management. It is widely adopted model mainly for public service delivery. So, before diving into the concept of public private partnership, it is good to know about public service delivery & the various options available for it.

Watershed & Watershed Delineation | Calculating Catchment Area

What is Watershed & Watershed Delineation ? A watershed is all the land & water which contributes runoff to a common point or outlet point. It is also called catchment or drainage area. The terms catchment & watershed are found to be used interchangeably. So, watershed area is the land area, from where all the surface runoff converges to a single point to give common discharge. Watershed delineation thus refers to creating boundary that represents the contributing area for a particular outlet point.

Monthly Flow Estimation | Regional & Empirical Methods in Nepal

Monthly flow estimation of a catchment is a major task for the design of irrigation system in a required commanded area. We generally estimate runoff as annual or monthly flow, extreme low flow & flood flow. Annual or monthly flow are required for the design of irrigation water requirement where as extreme low flow & flood flow are determined for the design of hydraulic structures & river training works. Here, in this article we are mainly concerned to the estimation of monthly flow in catchment area of study. When long term flow data of study are available, we use frequency analysis method. In absence of such records, we can apply regional & empirical method to calculate monthly flows.

Design Flood Estimation | Regional & Empirical Methods in Nepal

Design flood estimation is a major task for the design of hydraulic structures & river training works. The estimation of runoff from a catchment is a very complex problem. We generally estimate runoff in following different forms:

Science Behind the Cause of Earthquake in Nepal

Before knowing the Causes of Earthquake in Nepal , we need to know about the geological formation of Nepal. Nepal is a country which does not sit on single tectonic plate. It sits on the boundaries of two tectonic plates i.e. Indian plate and Eurasian plate ( also called Tibetan plate ). The Indian plate in south and the Eurasian plate in north started to collide millions of years ago after vanishing of Tethys sea in between them. The collision process is still active and this collision gave birth to Himalayas of which Nepal is the most important part. The collision process continued over years and some major and minor faults were developed within the area of our country. The study has shown the major three faults which are as below:
