Dr. Valentijn Pauwels Monash University
Throughout the latest decades, many large cities have been subject to severe floods, causing significant economic damage. In order to limit the amount of flooding caused by extreme rainfalls, a number of urban design measures have been developed. These need to be implemented in urban evolution models, in order to be able to analyse their impact on population dynamics, property prices, etc. The objective of this PhD. project is to implement a number of water sensitive urban design techniques in an urban evolution model, and to analyze their impact on severe floods.
