Staged cost optimization of urban storm drainage systems based on hydraulic performance in a changing environment

M. Maharjan, A. Pathirana, B. Gersonius, K. Vairavamoorthy
2009 Hydrology and Earth System Sciences  
In this paper, a staged cost optimization tool based on the hydraulic performance of the drainage system is presented.  ...  Allowing for detention storage to compliment the conveyance capacity of the drainage system network is one of the approaches to reduce urban floods.  ...  For example, it is possible for a location to have no detention storage until the 20th year, then 2000 m 3 storage can be build at that stage and a further 5000 m 3 storage at the end of 40th year.  ...
