AG Integrated Modelling

The aim of the working group "Integrated modelling" is to promote the application of integrated model approaches for the modelling of urban water systems in research and practice. The topics of the working group are:

Guideline Document for Modelling of Integrated Urban Wastewater Systemss

For some years the integrated analysis of urban drainage systems has become more important primarily with regard to the consideration of storm and waste water emissions and their effect on the receiving water body. The integrated view of the urban drainage system allows for a combined analysis and management of the complete system.

To this day, a comprehensive guideline for the realisation of integrated simulation studies, however, is not available. This gap shall be closed with the HSG Guideline on hand. The authors expect that the guideline leads to an intensified and proper distribution and application of the basic concepts of integrated modelling.

The HSG Guideline Document for Modelling of Integrated Urban Wastewater Systems is available as a pdf file [german only]. Basic ideas of the guideline have been presented at the 11th International Conference on Urban Drainage (ICUD). The basic ideas have also been published in a Water Science & Technology paper.
