Hydraulic and Hydrological Modelling

Thermal Power

Hydrological models are conceptual and simplified representations of the entire scope of hydrological cycles such as surface runoffs, precipitation, evaporation, streamflow, and groundwater. The two different types of hydrological models are

  • Stochastic model
  • Process based models

Hydraulic models are concerned with the evaluation of important elements that are related to the free surface fluid flow. In general terms, this can refer to two different types of modelling namely

  • Numeric modelling
  • Physical modelling

More than half of the cost of water and wastewater infrastructure is associated with the pipe networks. Assembling the maintenance data, planning, budgeting, and operations along with the attributes of the system into one single model that stimulates the behaviour of the actual operating conditions of the network, provides the distribution managers the optimum way to make right decisions.

Hydraulic and hydrological models are one of the most essential tools for investigating how networks operate for various tasks such as planning, and designing improved water infrastructure systems for predicting water cycle processes.

Nexus Waters has well- calibrated hydrological and hydraulic models that demonstrate the

  • The consequences of increased or fluctuating water demands, pipe flows, and pressure in water systems
  • The critical impact of climate change on the quality of water resources and its distribution.
  • The impact of climate change on the infrastructure by forecasting water pressures and flows, risk, and deficiencies.
  • The effectiveness of proposed solutions

These models create opportunities for improved and efficient operational services and cost savings. Nexus Waters offers a wide range of hydraulic and hydrological modelling solutions for water supply, storm water, watercourses, and wastewater systems to allow improved management of water resources with proper understanding. Also, it involves planning, evaluation and budgeting for new construction and maintenance; and security and awareness for new emergencies.
