Description

Dealing with design work in the fields of water management means the need of design values and data. Firmly connected with this circumstance is the question, how to obtain such design values and which risk corresponds with them. This is particularly valid for designing spillways of dams, which not only serve the purpose of water storage but also of flood control.
The research project aims at developing a new design concept under consideration of all known boundary conditions. Statistical analysis of the initial water level, condition of gates, availability of outlets and multidimensional analysis of hydrological data can make accurate design and risk analysis of hydraulic structures possible.
