Abstract

An optimization model that determines the minimum cost detention and drainage channel system for a watershed is described. The model determines the location and size of detention basins, the size, type, and number of outlet structures in addition to the design of downstream channel modifications. This new model is based upon dynamic programming for nonserial systems. The model is applied to a watershed for the purpose of illustrating its capabilities.
