Simulationsgestützter Entwurf von Abflusssteuerungen

Schütze, M.Simulationsgestützter Entwurf von Abflusssteuerungen. Abschlussveranstaltung des BMBF-Verbundprojektes SAMUWA - Schritte zu einem anpassungsfähigen Management des urbanen Wasserhaushalts, 14.06.2016, Münster, 2016

KURAS - Concepts for urban stormwater management and wastewater systems

The project KURAS is directed to the development of sutainable concepts to deal with waste water and rain water in urban regions based on clima change and demographical development assumtions. ifak simulates measures in the project to improve the behaviour of waste water treatment plants in overload situations (more frequent heavy storm events) as well as low flow rate or load situations expected e.g. during more dry sommer seasons.

SaMuWa - The City – a hydrological system under change

In most cases, urban drainage systems have been designed as static, inflexible systems with a long service period. The project „SaMuWa“ will enable municipalities and wastewater companies to shift from static planning of drainage systems towards adaptive management of the urban hydrological system. Within the project, options for planning and operation are being investigated, which allow to make optimum use of the existing infrastructure under uncertainty and under changing conditions (climate, demographic and structural developments).

ADESBA - A pre-configured general applicable control box for sewer system control (RTC)

Up to now, the development of real time control systems for urban drainage systems represents a rather time and resource consuming task. Based on the fundamental principles of a general control algorithm developed earlier at ifak, universal control modules have been developed – in cooperation with the automation company SEGNO and with the Hanover University – which allow a straightforward and easily-configurable set up of real time control systems. The modules are put in practice in the urban drainage system of Hildesheim.

Development of a software framework for water quality monitoring stations

A software framework for monitoring stations was developed for the company Primodal and the institute modelEAU of the University Laval (Quebec, Canada). 

Modelling of river water quality for the analysis of ecologically critical impacts of wastewater discharges

A current guideline document of the German Federal state of Hesse on the analysis of impacts of waste­water discharges on river water quality was extended by dynamical modelling approaches. At the Technical University of Darmstadt, a methodology, based on the pollutant load model SMUSI 5.0, was developed.

Basic system and modules for design and simulation tools

In this project, a software system for the simulation of dynamic systems and related modules, which can be rapidly and inexpensively used to develop customised software applications, was developed. The software modules will be used to create specialised software solutions for engineering applications. 

(German-Israeli cooperation in water technologies) - Impacts of onsite greywater reuse on urban wastewater systems

Due to shortage of water resources, reuse of greywater is increasingly gaining in importance. This project analyses the impacts of domestic greywater reuse on sewer system and wastewater treatement plant performance. This project combines modelling and simulation with measurements taken from a real case study in Israel. 

NewSan - Modelling of the next generation of sanitation systems

The sanitation chain comprises of excreta “production”, the user interface (toilet system), transport and final disposal or utilisation of the excreta. In many countries, in particular those of the developing nations, the sanitation system is not a networked system.
