  • Heap leach drainage design

    Heap leach operations have gained popularity in the past around the world as a reasonable method for extracting metals such as gold, copper, and nickel from earth material. In such heap operations, however, the success of the leaching operation depends on the flow regime established by the sprinklers at the top of each lift and the drainage system at the bottom.Each lift represents a unique ...

  • What is so hard about drainage modeling?

    Drainage modeling often suffers from the misconception that it is simple, but while it appears obvious that rain water will flow to the lowest point, the physical processes involved are not always well-understood or predictable. Drainage models attempt to predict that part of the water cycle that involves rainfall and its consequences, including potential flooding. Although flooding is, at its ...

  • Evolution of an integrated 1D/2D modeling package for urban drainage

    Introduction: Recent flooding events in North America have revealed deficiencies in existing stormwater infrastructure and management practices. The development of effective and efficient designs requires a comprehensive understanding of flooding in urban areas and complex open channel and overland flow systems. Traditional one dimensional (1D) models are used to simulate flow in river ...

  • Use of InfoWorks CS to build an integrated urban drainage model

    Creation of a single integrated InfoWorks CS model covering foul, surface and river systems is proving invaluable in understanding the complex interactions within a flood-prone urban catchment in north west London. The three systems had originally been held in separate models, with the foul and surface networks each modeled in InfoWorks CS and the rivers in ISIS. “There has been a lot of careful ...

  • Ability of Preissmann slot scheme to simulate smooth pressurisation transient in sewers

    Urban drainage networks are generally designed to operate in a free-surface flow condition. However, as a consequence of heavy rainfall events or network malfunctions, the filling of sewers (pressurisation) and network overflow may occur. Several modelling software products are commonly used to simulate floods in drainage networks, and their results are usually thought to be reliable and robust. ...

  • Flood modeling and mitigation measures in an urban environment – a Case Study, Victoria, Australia

    Introduction: Flooding on urban basins is intensifying due to rapid urbanization. Flooding primarily occurs because of drainage congestion of inland flow and/or over bank flow of rivers during severe rainfall events. Rapid urbanization is causing a major change in rainfall-runoff phenomenon and the drainage system as well. The overland flow pattern is becoming complex due to huge structural ...

  • Rapid Drawdown / Rapid Filling

    Rapid drawdown is one of the most severe loading conditions that can occur along drainage channels. During spring flooding the levels in canals can be high. Once the floodwaters recede, the levels in these drainage channels can drop quite rapidly and result in shallow slope failures. These shallow failures can lead to large slope deterioration if they are left unattended.Analysis of rapid ...

  • An agent-based approach for generating virtual sewer systems

    The application of artificial case studies is a well established technique in urban drainage to test measures, approaches or models. However, the preparation of a virtual case study for a sewer system is a tedious task. Several algorithms have been presented in the literature for an automatic generation of virtual sewer systems. Applying the approach of generating virtual cities by means of the ...

  • What Kenya’s biggest slum can teach us about saving cities from floods

    An innovative design firm is using data and community outreach to protect Nairobi's poorest residents from devastating storms. Try navigating the soggy, waterlogged slopes of Kenya’s largest slum, with its hundreds of thousands of ramshackle houses, and you’ll quickly realize why Kibera is named after a Nubian word meaning “jungle.” Pasted and propped along the banks of ...

  • Hydraulic Modelling in the Middle East and North Africa

    Water is under pressure in the Middle East and North Africa, a region which houses 4% of the world’s population but possesses only 1.4% of global water resources. A naturally scarce resource at the best of times faces increasing demand from a growing population with high expectations of water quality, supply and treatment. At the same time, the price of water fails to reflect the true cost of ...
