BMP, LID, SUDS, WSUD E INFRAESTRUTURA VERDE – PRÁTICAS QUE REVOLUCIONAM A DRENAGEM URBANA

Image
This page has very good graphics on LID and SuDS http://www.aquafluxus.com.br/bmp-lid-suds-wsud-e-infraestrutura-verde-praticas-que-revolucionam-a-drenagem-urbana/ By  Posted 29 de outubro de 2015
In Drenagem UrbanaQualidade da ÁguaRecursos Hídricos A urbanização provoca modificações no ciclo hidrológico, alterando suas parcelas e o balanço hídrico da bacia hidrográfica. A urbanização desordenada associada à falta de manejo e ao uso inadequado do solo provoca a redução da capacidade de armazenamento natural dos deflúvios, modificando os padrões de drenagem. A solução tradicionalmente adotada para a drenagem urbana visa o aumento da velocidade dos escoamentos com obras de canalização dos rios, o que acaba transferindo o problema para jusante e implica em continuadas intervenções localizadas após eventos de inundação. No entanto, uma abordagem mais atual, a chamada Drenagem Urbana Sustentável, busca soluções que proporcionam aretenção artificial das águas p…

New - Five Infiltration Options Now in InfoSWMM v14 and H2OMap SWMM v14 for Watershed Modeling

Image
Infiltration from the pervious area is a marvelous and from a runoff volume and runoff peak perspective a vital process in modeling the hydrology and ultimately the hydraulics of your Watersheds.  Figure 1 shows the five options available in InfoSWMM and H2OMap SWMM after the version 14 update which was based on the EPA SWMM 5.1.010 release:  Horton  Modified Horton Green Ampt Modified Green Ampt Curve Number Not only can you have a different Infiltration option per Model Simulation but you can have different options for each scenario and even for individual Subcatchments in a Scenario (Figure 2).  In #InfoSWMM and H2OMap SWMM the Soil DB table (Figure 3) shows the individual parameters that apply to Horton, Green Ampt and Curve Number infiltration. The Modified Horton and Green Ampt have the same parameters as the Horton and Green Ampt Soil Types.  The Soil Coverage is specified in the Subcatchment DB Table or individually in the Subcatchment Attribute Browser (AB) as shown in Figure 4.  Y…

Chapter 3 of RAH's (Robert Heinlein) Have Space Suit - Will Travel - Technical Writing Example

Image
Chapter 3 of RAH's (Robert Heinlein) Have Space Suit will Travel, Scribner's Juvenile from the 1950's in which hero Kip in  great expository RAH style refurbishes a used space suit.  A great book along with A Door into Summer for a young engineer of any age.
""But I didn't get tired of it; a space suit is a marvelous piece of machinery-a little space station with everything miniaturized. Mine was a chrome-plated helmet and shoulder yoke which merged into a body of silicone, asbestos, and glass-fiber cloth. This hide was stiff except at the joints. They were the same rugged material but were "constant volume" -when you bent a knee a bellows arrangement increased the volume over the knee cap as much as the space back of the knee was squeezed. Without this a man wouldn't be able to move; the pressure inside, which can add up to several tons, would hold him rigid as a statue. These volume compensators were covered with dural armor; even the finger …
