Urban Green DaMS
The Urban Green Design and Modelling of Sustainable Drainage Systems (Urban Green DaMS) was a collaborative research project between the University of Sheffield and Newcastle University, led by Prof. Virginia Stovin and Prof. Richard Dawson respectively. The project ran from 2019 through to 2022.
Urban Green DaMS set out to 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 was 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.
