Trevor Msibi

PhD candidate, University of Southern Queensland, NCEA

Sandile Trevor Msibi is a PhD candidate in the School of Civil Engineering and Surveying at the University of Southern Queensland. He is specializing in Irrigation Engineering with a research focus on the modelling of hydraulic transients and pressure regulation of variable-rate irrigation using large mobile sprinkler systems. This involves the application of advanced hydraulic engineering modelling techniques such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and other transient flow and water hammer simulation models in the characterization of transient pressure waves and their impact on the hydraulic performance of mechanized irrigation systems. Msibi’s research interests also include optimizing design and management of pressurized systems, energy efficiency improvement, flow measurement and water management. He holds a BSc in Land & Water Management from the University of Swaziland and an MSc in Irrigation Engineering from Sokoine University in Tanzania.

Where: International Convention Centre, Sydney – Room E5.2 – E5.3

When: Day 2 – Thursday, 14 June 2018, 11.00 – 11.30

Abstract Outline: The presentation will be in PowerPoint format and identical to a professional academic presentation as in the case of a PhD confirmation of candidature, where all the material will be condensed into slides. The slides will include a title page, introductory information covering highlights of the body of knowledge in recent irrigation technological advances and their present limitations, especially variable-rate irrigation. This will be aimed at providing substantive justification for the study and the specific objectives. It will also include informative pictures on the experimental design layout applied, with analysis and modelling data as well as the findings from the research.
