    Visualising populations of solutions is an important aspect of evolutionary computation (EC), allowing an algorithm user to evaluate the performance of an algorithm and a decision maker to understand the solution set from ...
  • Water management at BedZED - Some lessons 

    Shirley-Smith, Christopher; Butler, David (ICE Publishing, 2008)
    The Beddington zero fossil energy development (BedZED) in London, UK, is something of a modern icon in terms of assembling simultaneously on the same site new construction methods, the best of available ‘green’ technology ...
  • Water network design using a multiobjective real options framework 

    Marques, J; Cunha, M; Savić, D; Giustolisi, O (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2017)
    Water distribution networks (WDNs) are an essential element of urban infrastructure. To achieve a good level of performance, the traditional design of WDNs based on expected future conditions should be replaced by a ...
  • Water quality permitting: from end-of-pipe to operational strategies 

    Meng, FM; Fu, G; Butler, DB (IWA Publishing, 2016)
    End-of-pipe permitting is a widely practised approach to control effluent discharges from wastewater treatment plants. However, the effectiveness of the traditional regulation paradigm is being challenged by increasingly ...
