Climate Change and the Hydraulic Design of Sewerage Systems Volume IV: Associated Topics; IVC - Spatial High Intensity Rainfall

Price: £11  

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: - An evaluation of the different parameters used in FSR and FEH and their implications with regard to sewerage system design and simulation - A summary of drainage design practices and the future direction of drainage This report addresses the difficult issue of the limited spatial extent of extreme rainfall and the likely increase of more extreme rainfall events in the future. The report highlights the limitations of current practice in this area.
