  • 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. ...

  • A pattern-oriented approach to development of a real-time storm sewer simulation system with an SWMM model

    This paper documents a real-time storm sewer simulation system (RTS4) in conjunction with a Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) based on a pattern-oriented approach. The RTS4 is initiated by system analysis ascertaining functional requirements, which is sequentially followed by conceptual model, pattern languages, concrete pattern-based design, implementations and applications. The proposed ...

  • Different approaches for modelling of sewer caused urban flooding

    The correct prediction of flooding in urban areas is an important challenge to secure the values and fulfil public regulations. Traditional sewer simulations deliver the basic information for a rudimental flood protection, but the interaction between sewer and surface runoff can only be considered by a bi-directional modelling. Therefore detailed information about the relevant structures on the ...

  • Simulation of wastewater treatment plant within integrated urban wastewater models

    In the federal state of Hesse in Germany the application of an integrated software modelling framework is becoming part of the planning process to attain legal approval for the operation of combined sewer systems. The software allows for parallel simulation of flow and water quality routing in the sewer system and in receiving rivers. It combines existing pollution load model approaches with a ...

  • Integration of urban runoff and storm sewer models using the OpenMI framework

    This paper presents an integrated modeling approach that combines the legacy urban runoff and the legacy storm sewer models with data exchange at runtime to simulate sewer flows with real-time rainfalls. A software system called IRES has been developed to demonstrate the proposed approach. IRES uses the RUNOFF and the EXTRAN block of Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) as the legacy urban ...

  • Analysing urban floods and combined sewer overflows in a changing climate

    Climate change is expected to lead to an increased frequency and intensity of extreme precipitation events. For urban drainage, the primary adverse effects are more frequent and severe sewer overloading and flooding in urban areas, and higher discharges through combined sewer overflows (CSO). For assessing the possible effects of climate change, urban drainage models are run with ...

  • Comparing modelling techniques for analysing urban pluvial flooding

    Short peak rainfall intensities cause sewer systems to overflow leading to flooding of streets and houses. Due to climate change and densification of urban areas, this is expected to occur more often in the future. Hence, next to their minor (i.e. sewer) system, municipalities have to analyse their major (i.e. surface) system in order to anticipate urban flooding during extreme rainfall. Urban ...

  • Urban flooding: one-dimensional modelling of the distribution of the discharges through cross-road intersections accounting for energy losses

    Many investigations have been carried out in order to develop models which allow the understanding of complex physical processes involved in urban flooding. The modelling of the interactions between overland flows on streets and flooding flows from rivers and sewer networks is one of the main objectives of recent and current research programs in hydraulics and urban hydrology. However, the ...

  • Real Time Control of the Sewage System in St Malo

    Saint-Malo is an extremely attractive and popular seaside resort on the north coast of Brittany in France. Covering 1,400 hectares, the local population of 50,000 increases to 120,000 in the tourist season. One of the distinguishing features of this part of the Channel coast is a very high tidal range – 14 meters from low to high, with a potential impact back through the sewer network. Combined ...

  • The application of a Web-geographic information system for improving urban water cycle modelling

    Research in urban water management has experienced a transition from traditional model applications to modelling water cycles as an integrated part of urban areas. This includes the interlinking of models of many research areas (e.g. urban development, socio-economy, urban water management). The integration and simulation is realized in newly developed frameworks (e.g. DynaMind and OpenMI) and ...

  • Rainfall, Runoff and Infiltration Re-visited

    Introduction The flow variations in sewers have been modelled for several years with a comparatively high degree of accuracy as far as the diurnal variations and responses to climatic conditions are concerned. However, until comparatively recently the variations in flow due to fluctuations in groundwater levels, soil storage capacity and wetness of the catchment have only been modelled in basic ...

  • Uncertainty Analysis in Wastewater Engineering Modeling: Understanding the Limitations

    ABSTRACT Design engineers commonly rely on physical and mathematical approximations or models of real complex phenomena. During the development of these physical or mathematical models, simplifications and assumptions need to be made to develop such tools. It is unrealistic to expect that the modeling process will give an answer that is a perfect match to the real case, and it is, therefore, ...
