- Department of Hydraulic Structures
Unified and comprehensive framework covering the various aspects of risk and reliability in both hydraulic structures and water quantity and quality problems. The topics cover uncertainty analysis of acquired data, stochastic simulations, decision theory under uncertainty and case studies. Methods for risk analysis of extremes in hydrology, groundwater clean-up, rivers. Geotechnical risks in dam engineering, safety assessment of various hydraulic structures, reliability analysis of dam equipment, risk and cost benefit analysis of projects related to water management. Risk analysis of urban water systems vulnerability to extreme events and climate change effects. Sources of uncertainty and their propagation through urban water models.
