Abstract

This report describes the development of a series of computer models capable of determining the diameter, slope and crown elevations of each sewer in a storm drainage system in which the layout and manhole locations are predetermined. The criterion for design decisions is the generation of a least-cost system. The basis for all of the models is the application of discrete differential dynamic programming as the optimization tool. Two concepts are introduced as optimal model components: hydrograph routing and risks and uncertainties in designs. Three routing procedures are adopted. Expected flood damage costs are evaluated through the analysis of numerous risks and uncertainties associated with the design.
