Climate Change and the Hydraulic Design of Sewerage Systems Volume II: Rainfall Data Production & Analysis; IIA - Time-Series and Design Event Update

Price: £25  

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 two in volume II - Rainfall Data Production & Analysis. The other report in volume II covers: - The development and evaluation of a disaggregation tool to produce high resolution data from an hourly or other coarser resolution series. This report covers the work carried out on developing a tool (Balerep) for use in generating future rainfall. 100 year time series data output was generated for the present day and 2080 - 2100 Medium-High scenario. Seasonal characteristics of rainfall were considered important to be represented accurately. The use of design storms and the profile to be used for future rainfall is also covered.
