Urban flash flood forecast using support vector machine and numerical simulation
In order to provide urban flood early warning effectively, two support vector machine (SVM) models, using a numerical model as data producer, were developed to forecast the flood alert and the ...
A scalable open-source web-analytic framework to improve satellite-based operational water management in developing countries
Two software development hurdles to advancing real-world operationalization of satellite datasets for water management are addressed in this study. First, a simple, easy-to-build and open-source ...
Improving capability of conceptual modeling of watershed rainfall–runoff using hybrid wavelet-extreme learning machine approach
Rainfall–runoff process identification, due to uncertainties and complexities, requires advanced modeling strategies. For this end, this study presented different strategies to explore ...
Comparison of viscoelastic models with a different number of parameters for transient simulations
The numerical and analytical models used for transient simulations, and hence for the pressurized pipe system diagnosis, require the definition of a rheological component related to the pipe ...
Sensitivity of groundwater flow with respect to the drain–aquifer leakage coefficient
Mitigation measures may be used to prevent soil and water pollution from waste disposal, landfill sites, septic or chemical storage tanks. Among them, drains and impervious barriers may be set up. ...
Effect of hysteresis on water flow in the vadose zone under natural boundary conditions, Siloam Village case study, South Africa
A one-dimensional vadose zone model was used to simulate flow under natural boundary conditions. The effects of hysteresis and temporal variability of meteorological conditions were evaluated. ...
PondR: a process-oriented model to simulate the hydrology of drainage ponds
Drainage ponds are a useful measure to manage water resources. However, these small water bodies are characterized by highly dynamic internal processes. This article discusses a simple ...
Surrogate-based pumping optimization of coastal aquifers under limited computational budgets
The computationally expensive variable density and salt transport numerical models hinder the implementation of simulation-optimization routines for coastal aquifer management. To reduce the ...
Evaluation of the optimal size of a rainwater harvesting system in Sicily
In the Mediterranean area, water scarcity represents a critical issue due to the increasing water demand related to the population growth and the expansion of urban and industrialized areas. ...
Flexible investment planning for water distribution networks
The present work focuses on the planning of water distribution networks (WDNs). The research proposes an innovative strategy which aims at helping water managers formulate flexible investment plans ...
