    1/T90 (1/seconds): This coefficient considers the half life of the pollutant if this disappears by means of chemical reactions (non-conservative pollutant). This is the T90 for E.Coli. For towns with less than 10,000 inhabitants we can take a T90=2 hours (1/T90=0,5 hours-1) in the Mediterranean and T90=3 hours (1/T90=0,33 ...

  • Methodology of functionality selection for water management software and examples of its application

    When developing new software products and adapting existing software, project leaders have to decide which functionalities to keep, adapt or develop. They have to consider that the cost of making errors during the specification phase is extremely high. In this paper a formalised approach is proposed that considers the main criteria for selecting new software functions. The application of this ...
