Model development


RSWMM-Cost was developed to provide support for optimizing the selection and placement of best management practices (BMPs) in an urban watershed using EPA-SWMM models.  Model available at: https://github.com/nasrinalam/RSWMM-CostAutomation. Case study application p aper is in review: Alamdari, N., Sample, D.J., In Review. A Multiobjective Simulation-Optimization Tool for Assisting in Urban Watershed Restoration Planning, Journal of Cleaner Production.


SWMM: A novel application of EPA-SWMM to characterize runoff from a commercial nursery operation was developed.  Case study application is described in Nayeb Yazdi, M., Sample, D.J., Scott, D., and Owen, J.S., 2018. Water Quality Characterization of Irrigation and Storm Runoff for a Nursery,” in New Trends in Urban Drainage Modelling, International Conference on Urban Drainage Modeling, UDM 2018, Springer, pp. 788–793.


HSPF: Disaggregated HSPF models were developed for comparison with SWMM in various watersheds of the City of Virginia Beach.  Research is ongoing (Nayeb Yazdi).


HSPF/SWMM: An HSPF and a SWMM model were developed for the Stroubles Creek watershed, Blacksburg, VA., and calibrated for a comparison study in Nayeb Yazdi, M., Ketabchy, M., Sample, D.J., Scott, D., 2018. Evaluating HSPF and SWMM Model Applications to Simulate Baseflow and Peak flow in a Large Urban Watershed. Environmental Modelling & Software (In Review).:


SWMM/MINUHET: a novel hybrid of SWMM and MINUHET was developed for thermal modeling of urban runoff, model case study application in Ketabchy, M., Sample, D.J., Wynn-Thompson, T., and Nayeb Yazdi, M., 2018. Thermal evaluation of urbanization using a hybrid approach, Journal of Environmental Management, 226 (August), pp. 457–475, doi: 10.1016/j.jenvman.2018.08.016


Rainwater Harvesting (RWH): A model of RWH was improved and extended to incorporate climate change assessments, as described in Alamdari, N., Sample, D. J., Liu, J., and Ross, A., 2018. Assessing climate change impacts on the reliability of rainwater harvesting systems. Resources Conservation and Recycling, 132, 178-189. doi:10.1016/j.resconrec.2017.12.013
