ICAR/02 (MARITIME HYDRAULIC CONSTRUCTION AND HYDROLOGY)
DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING AND ARCHITECTURE
2nd semester (07/03/2022 - 17/06/2022)
45 lesson hours
Having passed the exams of Mathematical analysis, Physics and Hydrology
The objective of this module is to provide students with complementary concepts of Hydrology, with emphasys on issues related to the modelling and estimation of flood risk
1 – Preliminary notions of optimisation; quadratic programming and genetic algorithms.
2 – Additional concepts on UH and IUH. Parameterization through quadratic programming and genetic algorithms.
3 – Application of UH and IUH to real case studies and exercise.
4 – Full Hydrological model for the analysis of water availability in a catchment. Parameterization through a genetic algorithm.
5 – Application of SIMDEUM to a real case study and exercise.
6 – system of random variables and applications to Hydrology.
7 – Multiple linear regression. Stochastic processes and hydrological applications.
8 – Concept of RISK.
9 – Models for estimating hazard.
10 – Models for evaluating exposition and vulnerability.
11 – GIS applications.
12 – Exercise on flood risk assessment.
