Catalogue data

AbstractIn this course the students learn modern urban drainage engineering approaches, critical thinking, decision making in a complex environment and dealing with insufficient data and ill-defined problems.
ObjectiveBy the end of the course, you should be able to do the following:
-Apply different methods and methodologies to assess the impact of urban drainage on water pollution and flooding potential.
-Distinguish between hydrological and hydrodynamic models and their correct application.
-Identify the difference between emission and immersion oriented approaches for identifying drainage measures.
-Identify relevant measures, quantify their effects and assess their relative ranking/priority.
-Consider uncertainties and handle correctly incomplete data and information
-Make decisions and recommendations in a complex application case.
-Teamwork. State principles of effective team performance and the functions of different team roles; work effectively in problem-solving teams.
-Communication. Communicate and document your findings in concise group presentations and a written report.
ContentIn urban drainage the complexity of the decision-making, the available methodologies and the data availability increased strongly. In current environmental engineering practice, the focus shifted from tables and nomograms to sophisticated simulation tools.
The topics cover:
-Integrated urban water management
-Hydrological and hydrodynamic modelling
-Water quality based assessment
-Freshwater ecology
-Hydraulic capacity assessment
-Sewer network operation
-Decision analysis
