There exists a strong need to explore simulation techniques that not only represent complex dynamic systems in a realistic way but also allow the involvement of end users in model development to
Spatial System Dynamics: New Approach for Simulation of Water Resources Systems
The SSD modeling approach offers a single modeling framework for developing conceptually different models and provides the much-needed capability to model feedback based complex dynamic processes in time and space while giving insight into the interactions among different components of the system.

Simulations of world water dynamics with WorldWater indicate that there is a strong relationship between the world water resources and future industrial growth of the world and it is shown that the water pollution is the most important future water issue on the global level.
Short term streamflow forecasting using artificial neural networks
The research described in this article investigates the utility of Artificial Neural Networks for short term forecasting of streamflow and compares the performance of this tool to conventional approaches used to forecast streamflow.
A fuzzy compromise approach to water resource systems planning under uncertainty
The example compares the ELECTRE method with the fuzzy compromise approach to demonstrate the benefits of adopting a multicriteria decision analysis technique which presents subjectivity within its proper context while maintaining an intuitive and transparent technique for ranking alternatives.
Optimization of Water Distribution Network Design Using Differential Evolution
The paper describes the development of a DENET computer model that involves the application of an evolutionary optimization technique, differential evolution, linked to the hydraulic simulation
Estimation of missing streamflow data using principles of chaos theory
Missing consecutive streamflows are estimated, using the principles of chaos theory, and artificial neural networks show some superiority over K-nn in estimating the missing data of the English River, which is used as a case study.
Reservoir Systems Analysis: Closing Gap between Theory and Practice
A simple simulation-optimization model for reservoir sizing has been presented as an example of systems approach respond to practical needs of water resources engineers, and the benefits of knowledge-based technology with regard to single-multipurpose reservoir analysis.
Aggregation of fuzzy views of a large number of stakeholders for multi-objective flood management decision-making.
The proposed methodology shows alternative ways of soliciting the opinion of a large number of stakeholders and aggregating those opinions for use in multi-objective decision making.
