Urban Drainage, Fourth Edition

David Butler, Christopher James Digman, Christos Makropoulos, John W. Davies
March 26, 2018

This new edition of a well-established textbook covers the environmental and engineering aspects of the management of rainwater and wastewater in areas of human development. Urban Drainage deals comprehensively not only with the design of new systems, but also the analysis and upgrading of existing...

Principles of Stormwater Management

Roger D. Griffin
February 26, 2018

This book presents of all aspects of storm water management: the hydrologic cycle, sources of contaminants, standards applicable to discharges, regulatory issues, atmospheric deposition, best management practices, and health/environmental impacts. It includes technical details of the modern...

Flood Assessment: Modeling & Parameterization

Eric W. Harmsen, Megh R. Goyal
December 27, 2017

About 7,000 people lose their lives and nearly 100 million people are adversely affected by floods each year worldwide. Flooding occurs in almost every part of the world and is the result of extreme rainfall. Severe flooding also costs billions of dollars each year in damage and economic losses....

Integrated Stormwater Management

Richard Field
December 13, 2017

Abatement and prevention of storm-generated flow is one of the most challenging areas in the environmental engineering field today. Integrated Stormwater Management covers important aspects of the topic including pollution assessment, solution methods, transport and control, runoff and flood...

Urban Flood Mitigation and Stormwater Management

James C Y Guo
May 11, 2017

Effective urban drainage to manage stormwater and control flooding depends on good engineering, especially when an environmentally sustainable approach is being applied. This new text focuses on green methods and modelling techniques. It covers the principles of hydrology and drainage,...

Hormoz Pazwash
February 03, 2016

Design Drainage and Storm Water Management Systems Efficiently Urban Storm Water Management, Second Edition covers the design, installation, and maintenance of storm water management systems, addresses the impact of urban development on runoff and infiltration, and focuses on storm water...

Low-cost space-borne data for inundation modelling: topography, flood extent and water level: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Kun Yan
October 29, 2015

This thesis aims to explore the potential and limitations of low-cost, space-borne data in flood inundation modelling under unavoidable, intrinsic uncertainty. In particular, the potential in supporting hydraulic modelling of floods of: NASA’s SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission) topographic...

Networked Environments for Stakeholder Participation in Water Resources and Flood Management

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

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

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

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

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...
