The role of visualisation in effective sustainability assessment
Sustainable decision making in urban design is a complex and non-linear process that requires the interaction of a wide variety of stakeholders. A number of sustainable decision support tools have previously been developed ...
Modelling the outflow from a porous pavement
(Taylor & Francis, 2002-09)
The porous pavement of industrial and commercial areas is a form of sustainable urban drainage (SUD) system which has been developed to reduce runoff flow rates and volumes. This study reports on the modelling of the ...
A holistic approach to Concentration Assessment of hazards in the risk assessment of landfill leachate
Risk assessment is a new research area. The risk assessment research area deals with a wide range of issues other than landfills. Examples of these issues are Radiation, Food Industry, Ecology, Epidemiology, etc. The authors ...
Sustainable urban developments: stakeholder engagement through 3D visualisation
(IASTED and ACTA Press, 2010-02-17)
Rapidly increasing urban populations are placing increased pressure on social, economic and environmental resources. For our cities to cope with this demand we must ensure that any growth is sustainable. Tools already exist ...
Enhancement of water treatment sustainability through dynamic visualisation & modelling
(Acqua Consultoria, 2011-09)
The Water Framework Directive (WFD) proscribes specific levels of contaminates present in rivers and lakes in the UK, these contaminants come from a wide range of sources such as food additives present in faeces, agricultural ...
Modelling and visualizing sustainability assessment in urban environments
(Association of Researchers in Construction Management, 2010-09-06)
Major urban development projects extend over prolonged timescales (up to 25 years in the case of major regeneration projects), involve a large number of stakeholders, and necessitate complex decision making. Comprehensive ...

Resilience of soil to biological invasion: analysis of spread on networks
(International Union of Soil Sciences, 2010-08)
A network model for soil pore volume is presented and applied to the analysis of biological invasion of microorganisms. The pore geometry of two soils with a relatively high or low bulk density were quantified with the ...
Dynamic visualisation and modelling to support sustainable phosphate management
(British Hydrological Society, 2012-09-14)
Under the WFD the UK water companies are responsible for providing effective treatment methods which will reduce the level of phosphate, a key nutrient in river eutrophication, in their respective waterways. The selection ...
Investigating factors affecting the anaerobic digestion of seaweed: modelling and experimental approaches
(Abertay University, 2013)
The use of alternative feedstock sources to enhance the energy production of anaerobic systems, and thus their economic value, is one of the current research areas in the field of bioenergy production. Marine biomass ...
