University of Nottingham - Engineering

Location: Nottingham
Salary: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 12th November 2021

Aim: To develop an analysis tool for water network resilience 

One of the essential networks for society is water distribution networks. The delivery of water to the customers is affected through different threats to the system. These include: failure of components in the system, which are accelerated through the aging of the infrastructure; climate change, due to changing weather conditions and environmental factors impacting on the system; and deliberate planned acts, such as targeted terrorist activities. 

This exciting project will focus on developing a mathematical model (and a supporting research software) to predict the key performance indicators of a water network, when links in the network are fully or partially failed. It will investigate the impact of the different threat types and identify the critical links in the network, which most affect the network performance. Resilience evaluation will consist of proposing a method for the best use of resource allocation, which will make water networks robust and resilient to these threats.
