This research analyses and evaluates the performance of the drainage system in Beira, Mozambique. It considers its formation, maintenance, failure modes and connections, to recommend improvements on its performance. The research identifies six primary failure modes - vegetation overgrowth, human interference, waste accumulation, sedimentation,...

The report tackles Galveston's flooding challenges, which are currently in development with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) ring barrier. However, the current design, predominantly addressing coastal flooding, falls short in dealing with pluvial flooding, relying heavily on pumps. This top-down approach neglects environmental and...

REAL-time control (RTC) is a technique used to dynamically control urban drainage systems to utilise the existing infrastructuremore optimally. It can be used to achieve a number of objectives aiming to improve the functioning of the urban drainage system, typically through the reduction of pollution. When heavy rainfall occurs, combined sewer...

Dredged cohesive sediment is progressively being used for wetland construction. However, little is known about the effect of plant growth during the self-weight consolidation of this sediment. In order to check the feasibility of such a study, a new experimental setup has been constructed. As an example, the effect of Phragmites australis on the...

Urban Drainage Systems can cause ecological and public health issues by releasing untreated contaminated water into the environment. Real-time control (RTC), augmented with rainfall nowcast, can effectively reduce these pollution loads. This research aims to identify key dynamics in the nowcast accuracies and relate those to the performance...

Urban areas are constantly developing and thereby affect the local water cycle. Real-time control (RTC) strategies are used to operate urban drainage systems optimally during these transitions. This paper aims to develop a methodology to study the impacts of common gradual changes occurring in the urban environment (densification of the urban...

Urban flooding is a major problem for cities around the world, with significant socio-economic consequences. Conventional real-time flood forecasting models rely on continuous time-series data and often have limited accuracy, especially for longer lead times than 2 hrs. This study proposes a novel event-based decision support algorithm for...

This study presents a novel approach for urban flood forecasting in drainage systems using a dynamic ensemble-based data mining model which has yet to be utilised properly in this context. The proposed method incorporates an event identification technique and rainfall feature extraction to develop weak learner data mining models. These models...

Model Predictive Control (MPC) of Urban Drainage Systems (UDS) has been established as a cost-effective method to reduce pollution. However, the operation of large UDS (containing over 20 actuators) can only be optimized by oversimplifying the UDS dynamics, potentially leading to a decrease in performance and reduction in users' trust, thus...

This chapter addresses the general properties and characteristics of the following residue categories: mining wastes, mineral processing wastes or tailings, metallurgical wastes (slags, dusts, slimes, and muds), and wastewaters. Residue origin, storage, disposal, and a brief indication of associated environmental impacts are discussed;...

A monitoring case study of the hydrologic performance of the Aquaflow infiltrating road foundation. The results show a good performance in peak delay of 4 - 8 hours, volume retention of 50% to 97% and peak reduction of 15% to 76% for varying rainfall events and initial soil conditions. The results are promising for future implementation to...

Brevoord, Sophie (author)
Urban wastewater systems can impact the urban ecology by untreated wastewater discharges through combined sewer overflow (CSO) events, or by partial treatment of the wastewater at the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). CSO events can cause oxygen depletion, eutrophication, and the discharge of pathogens. The partial treatment of the wastewater...

Urban runoff remobilises solids and their associated pollutants from urban-built environments and transports them to drainage systems via gully pots. This study presents an extensive monitoring campaign on the solids loading to drainage systems, including 104 gully pots as sampling locations and lasting 2 years. The solids loading is modelled...

Quaternary Caspian Sea level variations depended on geophysical processes (affecting the opening and closing of gateways and basin size/shape) and hydro-climatological processes (affecting water balance). Disentangling the drivers of past Caspian Sea level variation, as well as the mechanisms by which they impacted the Caspian Sea level...

Surrogate models replace computationally expensive simulations of physically-based models to obtain accurate results at a fraction of the time. These surrogate models, also known as metamodels, have been employed for analysis, control, and optimization of water distribution and urban drainage systems. With the advent of machine learning (ML),...

Risk-informed flood risk management requires a comprehensive and quantitative risk assessment, which often demands multiple (thousands of) river and flood model simulations. Performing such a large number of model simulations is a challenge, especially for large, complex river systems (e.g., Mekong) due to the associated computational and...

This paper presents a multi-criteria risk-based approach for managing urban flood hazards by using a combination of conventional measures and contemporary Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). A multi-objective optimisation model coupled with a simulation model of UDS in the SWMM software is developed with the three objectives of minimising...

Hydrodynamic models are used to analyse water networks (water distribution, drainage, surface water, district heating, etc.). The non-linear nature of water flows necessitates the use of iterative solution methods in hydraulic modelling. This requires a relatively large computational effort. To reduce this effort, networks, network forcing...

Urban drainage systems have developed way beyond the traditional piped combined or separate sewer systems. Many ‘new’ systems are being introduced, ranging from stormwater infiltration facilities to green roofs. However, the widely advocated blue-green infrastructures are typically overlooked by asset managers, which will very likely have...

Urban drainage models (UDMs) are often used to manage urban flooding. However, these models generally involve many parameters to represent the underlying complex hydrodynamic processes. This results in significant challenges to achieving effective and robust model calibration especially with frequently limited observations, leading to...
