  • A DSS generator for multiobjective optimisation of spreadsheet-based models 

    Savic, Dragan; Bicik, Josef; Morley, Mark S. (Elsevier, 2011)
    Water management practice has benefited from the development of model-driven Decision Support Systems (DSS), and in particular those that combine simulation with single or multiple-objective optimisation tools. However, ...
  • Dynamic inundation simulation of storm water interaction between sewer system and overland flows 

    Hsu, Ming-Hsi; Chen, Shiuan‐Hung; Chang, Tsang-Jung (Taylor & Francis / Chinese Institute of Engineers, 2002)
    An improved urban inundation model, coupling a 2D non‐inertia overland flow model with a storm water management model, is adopted to simulate inundation in urban areas. The model computes, not only the overland runoff and ...
  • Edges of Mutually Non-dominating Sets 

    Everson, Richard M.; Walker, David J.; Fieldsend, Jonathan E. (ACM, 2013-07)
    Multi-objective optimisation yields an estimated Pareto front of mutually non-dominating solutions, but with more than three objectives understanding the relationships between solutions is challenging. Natural solutions ...
  • Effect of heterogeneity on the elastic properties of auxetic materials 

    Gaspar, N.; Smith, Christopher W.; Evans, Kenneth E. (American Institute of Physics, 2003)
    Auxetic materials are gaining practical interest for their unusual and sometimes extreme mechanical response. The process of modeling these materials so far has highlighted a number of microstructural properties that are ...

    Belmont, M. R.; Aziz, Mustafa M.; Wright, C. David (American Institute of Physics, 2008)
    The problem discussed is the significance of anisotropies in the thermal parameters of different phases of phase-change materials as used for data storage purposes during recording. The particular phase change in interest ...
  • The effects of low impact development on urban flooding under different rainfall characteristics 

    Qin, Hua-peng; Li, Zhuo-xi; Fu, Guangtao (Elsevier, 2013)
    Low impact development (LID) is generally regarded as a more sustainable solution for urban stormwater management than conventional urban drainage systems. However, its effects on urban flooding at a scale of urban drainage ...
