Design of water systems under climate uncertainty

Project Number # 4524-16

Combining engineering experience and formal optimisation for designing water systems under climate uncertainty

Project Leader:  Cameron McPhail

How can a water supply system be designed such that it provides a robust supply of water despite a deeply uncertain future? Can robust designs also be cost-effective? Multi-objective optimisation provides a framework that can answer these questions.

Supervisors:  Prof Holger Maier [University of Adelaide] and Dr Leon van der Linden [SA Water]
