Modelling 3D Structures

Presented by Rachael Albrighton at the CIWEM Urban Drainage Group Conference this paper looks specifically at advances that have been made in hydraulic modelling techniques. The CIWEM Urban Drainage Group autumn conference brings all the latest techniques and advances in the drainage industry together. Modelling 3D structures such as ponds, swales, channels and embankments is a relatively new […]

10 Golden Rules for Flow Surveys

Despite endeavours by many people there has been no clear, concise guidance on how to design a flow survey taking account of all the relevant factors (safety, flow characteristics etc) and also on how to go about checking the quality and integrity of the data. The UDG Event Duration Monitoring Good Practice Guide goes some[…..]

Are current research efforts enough to ensure a flood resilient future?

The BRIM workshop (held at Loughborough University on 16th September) focused on “Sustainable and Resilient Water Infrastructure: flood risk and resilience” and gathered researchers from industry and academia to discuss the main challenges for a resilient water infrastructure in the UK. Extreme weather events put water infrastructure at risk while population growth increases demand. In many cases the[…..]
