Dynamic modeling of detention tanks for flood control in urban drainage systems in developing countries

P. Sreeja, K. Gupta & O. Mark
ABSTRACT Increasing urbanization and high population density have resulted in an increase in the impervious areas in the cities. This results in flooding and overloading of existing drainage systems. Implementing structural measures for controlling urban flooding are extremely difficult due to the space constraints in densely populated cities in developing countries. An alternative cost effective solution can be achieved by implementing a control strategy for the existing control structures at different locations in the drainage...
