Networked Environments for Stakeholder Participation in Water Resources and Flood Management: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Networked Environments for Stakeholder Participation in Water Resources and Flood Management: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Adrian Delos Santos Almoradie

May 29, 2014

Stakeholders’ lack of awareness, involvement and participation in the planning and management of water resources and flood risk often creates problems in the acceptance and implementation of proposed measures. Interactions among stakeholders and decision makers build awareness, trust, enhance...

Delivering Integrated Flood Risk Management: Governance for Collaboration, Learning and Adaptation - UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Delivering Integrated Flood Risk Management: Governance for Collaboration, Learning and Adaptation - UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Sebastiaan van Herk

May 14, 2014

The frequency and consequences of extreme flood events have increased rapidly worldwide in recent decades and climate change and economic growth are likely to exacerbate this trend. Flood protection measures alone cannot accommodate the future frequencies and impacts of flooding. Integrated flood...

Delivering Change: Towards Fit-for-Purpose Governance of Adaptation to Flooding and Drought, UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Delivering Change: Towards Fit-for-Purpose Governance of Adaptation to Flooding and Drought, UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Jeroen Rijke

May 14, 2014

This book addresses pressing challenges of policy makers, planners and project managers in the water sector to successfully implement adaptation action. Taking into account both strategic planning and implementation of adaptation projects, it provides principles and attributes that contribute to...

Large-Eddy Simulation in Hydraulics

Large-Eddy Simulation in Hydraulics

Wolfgang Rodi, George Constantinescu, Thorsten Stoesser

June 27, 2013

Large-Eddy Simulation (LES), which is an advanced eddy-resolving method for calculating turbulent flows, is used increasingly in Computational Fluid Dynamics, also for solving hydraulics and environmental flow problems. The method has generally great potential and is particularly suited for...

Adaptive Multi-reservoir-based Flood Control and Management for the Yellow River: Towards a Next Generation Software System - UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Adaptive Multi-reservoir-based Flood Control and Management for the Yellow River: Towards a Next Generation Software System - UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Shengyang Li

June 26, 2013

The Yellow River experienced many major floods in the past, often with catastrophic effects for the North China Plain. After establishing the Yellow River Conservancy Commission (YRCC) of the Ministry of Water Resources, a number of reservoirs were constructed for flood control and water resources...

Framework for Dynamic Modelling of Urban Floods at Different Topographical Resolutions: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Framework for Dynamic Modelling of Urban Floods at Different Topographical Resolutions: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Solomon D. Seyoum

March 08, 2013

Urban flood risks and their impacts are expected to increase as urban development in flood prone areas continues and rain intensity increases as a result of climate change while aging drainage infrastructures limit the drainage capacity in existing urban areas. Flood mitigation strategies are...

Long-term Process-based Morphological Modeling of Large Tidal Basins: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Long-term Process-based Morphological Modeling of Large Tidal Basins: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Ali Dastgheib

December 10, 2012

The study presented in this book is a part of a collective effort to bridge the existing gap of our understanding of morphological behavior of tidal basins between engineering and geological time scales by extending the use of coastal engineering tools (process-based models) to geological time...

Applying the Flood Vulnerability Index as a Knowledge Base for Flood Risk Assessment: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Applying the Flood Vulnerability Index as a Knowledge Base for Flood Risk Assessment: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Stefania-Florina Balica

October 11, 2012

Floods are one of the most common and widely distributed natural risks to life and property worldwide.  There is a need to identify the risk of flooding in flood prone areas to support decisions for flood management from high level planning proposals to detailed design. An important part of...

An Approach towards Generic Coastal Geomorphological Modelling with Applications: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

An Approach towards Generic Coastal Geomorphological Modelling with Applications: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Qinghua Ye

October 11, 2012

This thesis presents the development a generic morphological model for both structured and unstructured grid.  An online coupling model frame is set up by modularizing a proven 3d hydrodynamic module, a bed state description module, a sediment transport module, a bed update module, and a...

Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Infrastructure Management, Second Edition

Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Infrastructure Management, Second Edition

Neil S. Grigg

June 08, 2012

Urban water services are building blocks for healthy cities, and they require complex and expensive infrastructure systems. Most of the infrastructure is out of sight and tends to be taken for granted, but an infrastructure financing crisis looms in the United States because the systems are aging...

The Resilience Approach to Climate Adaptation Applied for Flood Risk: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

The Resilience Approach to Climate Adaptation Applied for Flood Risk: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Berry Gersonius

May 16, 2012

Nowadays, the uncertainties associated with the process of making decisions for water infrastructure investments can be significant and arise from, amongst other factors, a lack of knowledge about primary external drivers, like climate change. New and improved methods for the assessment climate...

Multi-Objective Optimization for Urban Drainage Rehabilitation: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Multi-Objective Optimization for Urban Drainage Rehabilitation: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Wilmer Jose Barreto Cordero

May 01, 2012

Flooding in urbanized areas has become a very important issue around the world. The level of service (or performance) of urban drainage systems (UDS) degrades in time for a number of reasons. In order to maintain an acceptable performance of UDS, early rehabilitation plans must be developed and...
