Abstract:
The Water Resources Management and Costal Engineering Laboratory, develops innovative tools for solving complex environmental engineering problems. We focus on the development and application of advanced state-of-the art computer models to be used in computational hydraulics and hydrology supporting decision making for engineering design projects, contingency planning studies, and regulatory compliance support.
ACTIVITIES:
Water Resources Management.
Collection and organization of environmental data with the use of geographic information systems.
Application of hydrologic models in modelling surface and ground water in basins. Application of GIS/Remote Sensing Technologies for the determination of hydraulic parameters like land use, soil type and Digital Terrains
Development of new technologies of neural networks for estimating and forecasting the groundwater level. Evaluation and remediation of aquifers.
Flood forecasting, determination of flood level and estimation of impacts of flood events.
Planning of urban networks for sewerage and irrigation.
Coastal Engineering
Mathematical simulation of diffusion and dispersion of pollutants in water bodies (rivers, lakes, coasts). Alternative planning of acceptable liquid effluent for reduction of their negative impacts in the environment and in human health. Environmental flow impacts in surface and coastal waters.
Mathematic models of wave propagation. Coastal Effects on waves, coastal sediment transport, coastal morphology, environmental impact of coastal structures.
