Stormwater tank performance significantly depends on management practices. This paper proposes a procedure to assess tank efficiency in terms of volume and pollutant concentration using four different capture tank management protocols. The comparison of the efficiency results reveals that, as expected, a combined bypass—stormwater tank system achieves(More)
Velocity distribution in an open channel flow can be very useful to model many hydraulic phenomena. Among the others, several 1D models based on the concept of entropy are available in the literature, which allow estimating the velocity distribution by measuring velocities only in a few points. Nevertheless, since 1D models have often a limited practical(More)
The optimal management of water resources is a key problem for the sustainable exploitation of ground and surface water sources. One of the key issues is the assurance of quality of the provided water with respect to the presence of pollutant substances or micro biotic. This paper defines an automatic approach to evaluate the vulnerability of a provisioning(More)
