Urban Green DaMS
Urban Green Design and Monitoring of Sustainable Drainage Systems (Urban Green DaMS)
Urban Green Design and Monitoring of Sustainable Drainage Systems (Urban Green DaMS) is a collaborative research project between the University of Sheffield and Newcastle University, led by Prof. Virginia Stovin and Prof. Richard Dawson respectively. Urban Green DaMS will address a set of critical research questions relating to the design and modelling of bioretention cells for alleviating urban flood risk. Our aim is to provide the required modelling tools and parameter values, and develop the robust design guidance - equivalent in quality to that for pipes and other hard engineering interventions - that is necessary to enable the widespread implementation of vegetated bioretention cells for stormwater management.
