Water utilities adapt through data-driven decisions

The important decisions made by water utilities need to include considerations of an uncertain future. This may mean that they will need to adapt their thinking.

How to optimise stormwater harvesting systems with multiple objectives

Stormwater harvesting (SWH) is an important, water-sensitive urban design (WSUD) approach. This article shows you a new SWH conceptual design modelling framework. It handles the optimal placement and sizing of stormwater harvesting infrastructure within an urban development.

Optimisation heuristics: 4 powerful ways to boost your optimisation performance

Human heuristics, or ‘rules-of-thumb’, can guide optimisation algorithms in an intelligent way towards innovative solutions to complex real-world problems. This article presents four heuristics proven to improve optimisation solution performance while reducing computational overheads.
