AbstractIn the Experimental and Computer Laboratory students are introduced to research and good scientific practice. Experiments are conducted in different disciplines of environmental engineering. Data collected during experiments are compared to the corresponding numeric simulations. The results are documented in reports or presentations.
ObjectiveThe student will learn the following skills: basic scientific work, planning and conducting scientific experiments, uncertainty estimations of measurements, applied numerical simulations, modern sensor technology, writing reports.
ContentThe Experimental and Computer Laboratory is building on courses in the corresponding modules. Material from these courses is a prerequisite or co-requisite (as specified below) for participating in the Experimental and Computer Laboratory (MODULE: Project in the Experimental and Computer Laboratory):
- WatInfra: Water Network Management
- UWM: SysUWM + ProcUWM: Operation of Lab-WWTP
- AIR: Air Quality Measurements
- WasteBio: Anaerobic Digestion
- WasteRec: Plastic Recycling
- ESD: Environmental Assessment
- GROUND: Groundwater Field Course Kappelen
- WRM: Modelling Optimal Water Allocation
- FLOW: 1D Open Channel Flow Modelling
- LAND: Landscape Planning and Environmental Systems
- RIVER: Discharge Measurements
- HydEngr: Hydraulic Experiments
- RemSens: Earth Observation and Landscape Planning
- SOIL: Soil and Environmental Measurements Lab
Lecture notesWritten material will be available.

AbstractThe course allows the students to apply concepts and methods concerning planning and management of water resources systems by developing a numerical exercise based on the real-world case study.
The theoretical framework will be given in the course "Participatory and Integrated Water Resources Planning" (118-0112-00)
ObjectiveAnalyse and model the relationship between hydropower generation and other water related interests (both socio-economic and environmental) in the proposed real-world case study.
Explore the effects of different hydropower reservoirs' operation strategies on the identified relationships and identify potential fair tradeoffs in water resources allocation.
ContentStudents will develop a project in small groups.
The group work is organized according to the following structure
- Water system analysis
- Identification of criteria and indicators for water related interests
- Coding of water system model and indicators
- Scenario definition
- Design of the reservoir operation strategies
- Comparison and selection of interesting strategies
Lecture notesReading material (scientific papers, reports, etc.).
Handouts for each step of the group work.
Examples of code (basic programming and Matlab knowledge required)
Prerequisites / NoticeThis course (118-0112-01 exercises) can only be taken in combination with 118-0112-00 (theory part).
