Urban Green DaMS
The Urban Green Design and Monitoring of Sustainable Drainage Systems (Urban Green DaMS) is a collaborative research project between the University of Sheffield and Newcastle University, led by Prof. Virginia Stovin and Prof. Richard Dawson respectivley.
Urban Green DaMS will address a set of critical research questions relating to the design and modelling of bioretention cells for alleviating urban flood risk.
Aims & Objectives
Our aim is to provide the required modelling tools and parameter values, and develop the robust design guidance - equivalent in quality to that for pipes and other hard engineering interventions - that is necessary to enable the widespread implementation of vegetated bioretention cells for stormwater management.
