The average evaporation in Iran is 3 times higher than the world average. Applying chemical monolayers on water surfaces is one of the promising methods for suppressing the evaporation. Literature studies have shown that the mixture of cetyl and stearyl (ratio of 1 to 9) is the state-of-the-art monolayer to minimize the evaporation. Adding calcium hydroxide increases the spreading rate and self-healing of the monolayer. Despite long study and investigation on monolayers, there are inconsistencie...

The assessment of uncertainty prediction has become a necessity for most modeling studies within the hydrology community. This paper addresses uncertainty analysis on a novel hybrid double feedforward neural network (HDFNN) model for generating the sediment load prediction interval (PI). By using the Lower Upper Bound Estimation (LUBE) method, the lower and upper bounds are directly generated as outputs of neural network based models. Coverage Width-based Criterion (CWC) is employed as an object...

It is a challenge to develop models that can represent the stochastic behaviour of rivers and basins. Currently used streamflow models were constructed under rigid hypotheses. Hence, these models are limited in their ability to represent nonlinear dependencies and/or unusual distributions. Copulas help overcome these limitations and are being employed widely for modelling hydrological data. For instance, pure copula-based models have been proposed to simulate univariate hydrological series. Howe...

The increasing age and deterioration of drinking water mains is causing an increasing frequency of pipe bursts. Not only are pipe repairs costly, bursts might also lead to contamination of the Dutch non-chlorinated drinking water, as well as damage to other above- and underground infrastructure. Detection and localization of pipe bursts have long been priorities for water distribution companies. Here we present a method for proactive leakage control, referred to as Monitoring Support. Contrary t...

This research aims to explore the dynamic transport of water and salt in soil under different irrigation modes and disclose the desalting effect of different irrigation factors in inland arid irrigation areas. Jingdian Irrigation District in Gansu Province, which is located in the arid region of Northwest China, is selected as a typical experimental area. Soil water and salt dynamic migration model is constructed based on HYDRUS-2D software, and field irrigation experiments are designed accordin...

Stochastic Dynamic Programming (SDP) is a major method for optimizing reservoir operation. Handling non-linear, non-convex and non-differentiable objective functions and constraints are some advantages of SDP. Besides the mentioned advantages, this method suffers drawbacks like infeasibility. Infeasibility occurs in SDP naturally because of discretization process and random combination of state variable values. The main idea in this paper is to mitigate the infeasibility drawback in SDP by prope...

Flooding issue and energy shortage have become the common concerns impeding the urban development under climate change scenarios. Exploiting potential hydro-energy from urban stormwater drainage system (USDS) has multiple beneficial perspectives for controlling flooding, relieving energy shortage and mitigating the greenhouse gases emission, which has not yet been systematically investigated in previous works. In this paper, a systematical analysis framework is developed to design the flooding r...

The complex nature of water resources and the related uncertainty cause decision making to be difficult in practice. In this study, two multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) methods, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS), were applied to determine the best scenario adapting to climate change in agriculture for the Gharanghu basin in Northwest Iran for a 30-year period (2040-2069). Reservoir efficiency indexes were used...

A new method is proposed to calculate flow in a compound meandering channel by considering the momentum transfer between different zones. Vertical momentum transfer, at the horizontal interface of the lower main channel and the meander belt; and the horizontal momentum transfer, at the vertical interfaces between the meander belt and the adjoining outer floodplains. Modelling of this analytical method for the bend apex section is carried out, for a control volume of unit length. Calibration has ...

Accurate and reliable long-term runoff forecasting is very important for water resource system planning and management. This study utilized three data-driven models to simulate and forecast the monthly runoff series of the Huangzhuang hydrological station from 1981 to 2017. To improve the accuracy and reduce the uncertainty, two model averaging techniques were applied to merge forecast results of the different models, and 90% confidence intervals were derived using Monte Carlo sampling. Several ...
