Special Issue "Design of Urban Water Drainage Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2019).
Urban drainage systems (UDS) have a central role in water management. Impermeabilization of increasingly larger urban and suburban areas, as well as the occurring climate changes, lead to possible drainage failures within short return time periods and require, along with accurate analysis and forecast tools, also the design of new diffused storage systems like permeable pavements, gardens and green roofs. Adaptation of UDS to existing or planned wastewater treatment plants, as well as exploitation of the energy potential hidden in the conveyed water volumes are also central and critical issues for a wise urban water management.
On this basis, modeling urban drainage systems requires, along with accurate and efficient 1D and 2D numerical solvers, also the capability of getting and processing all the data and the information used by the models: Topografic elevations, soil permeability, rainfall/runoff transformation inside the model domain and in all the linked external basins, rain intensity nowcast and forecast, capability of the final wastewater treatment plant, information about the potential benefit of hydropower production, information about the (quantitative and qualitative) capability of the final receiving water body.

For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
