Water Engineering - Research Projects

Current Projects:


Twenty 65 PODDS+ Material Destiny

TWENTY65

TWENTY65 are working in partnership across the water sector to tailor water systems so that they positively impact health, the environment, the economy and society.

PODDS+

The Prediction of Discolouration in Distribution Systemsproject is transforming understanding and operational management to protect drinking water quality

'Material Destiny'!

The Material Destiny project is assessing service reservoir performance by tracking the flux of material through these critical components of drinking water distribution systems

Urban Green Dams: Design and Monitoring of SuDS Pipebots Plexus

Urban Green DaMS: Design and Modelling of SuDS

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.

Pipebots
 

Pipebots aims to revolutionise buried pipe infrastructure management with the development of micro-robots.
 

Plexus
 

PLEXUS research in Sheffield is focused on Harvesting Energy from Buried Infrastructure.
 
 

Recent Projects:


Ponds sw4e_logo PWG

Residence Times in Vegetated Stormwater Ponds

Ponds are often placed besides roads or in developments in order to capture rainfall run-off. Their purpose is two fold. To help reduce urban flooding and to improve run-off quality.

Smart Water 4 Europe

SmartWater4Europe aims to demonstrate how drinking water distribution networks (DWDS) can be better monitored and managed using the latest instrumentation and data analysis techniques.

Pennine Water Group

The Pennine Water Group aim to advance engineering and scientific knowledge across all aspects of potable water, stormwater and wastewater.

Quics Centaur Greenroofs

QUICS ITN

Quantifying Uncertainty in Integrated Catchment Studies.

CENTAUR

Cost Effective Neural Technique for Alleviation of Urban Flood Risk.

Green Roof Hydrological Performance

Our research focuses on the stormwater management benefits of green roofs. Our overall research aim is to develop accurate and useful hydrological modelling tools.

Interact

INTERACT

Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Flow Exchange in Urban Flood Flows.
