Climate Change and the Hydraulic Design of Sewerage Systems Volume IV: Associated Topics; IVA - A Comparison between SOIL and HOST; Implications for Urban Drainage Design

Price: £17  

This report is part of a major study on the impact of climate change on sewerage hydraulic design The project was wide ranging, but with a principle focus on the performance of sewerage systems under future (year 2080) rainfall conditions and what changes might be needed in the hydraulic design of sewerage systems to address any problems that climate change might pose. Other issues include, a summary of international drainage practice and predicted changes in, sea levels and river flows. This report is one of 13 documents collated in 4 volumes. This document is one of four in volume IV - Associated Topics. The other reports in volume IVcover: - A summary of drainage design practices and the future direction of drainage - An overview of high intensity spatial rainfall and the issues relating to climate change and drainage system evaluation This report addresses the issue of urban runoff models being based on FSR and the implications of the trend to using FEH. Recommendations are made as to how to apply current tools using FEH descriptors. In general this is not seen as causing a major difficulty for sewerage design and simulation tools.
