Water Engineering Design in a Changing Climate (IAHR_4_S3)
Convenor: Roberto Ranzi (University of Brescia)
This session invites experts to present their experiences about criteria and case studies of adaptation of engineering design of hydraulic infrastructures and water resource management to climate change. It will present methods for the analysis of non-stationary time series and of the estimate of the hydrological and hydraulic design variables as precipitation, floods, droughts, sea level, and storm surges. Guidence for designing urban stormwater drainage systems, dam spillways, river embarkments, reservoirs, coastal defence systems will be presented.
