Lecture Series on Flood Routing : Part III

Level Pool Routing Hydrologic Routing for Reservoir or Level Pool Routing Hydrologic routing predicts the flow of water through a river system, whereas level pool routing focuses on the changes in water levels in reservoirs or lakes. However, Level Pool Routing is referred to as Hydrologic Routing of the Reservoirs as the water level of the reservoir is assumed to be horizontal or level at the time of prediction of the outflow hydrograph. Understanding and managing water resources in a variety of settings, from metropolitan regions to natural landscapes, requires the use of both approaches. Taking into account several elements that can affect water flow, such as precipitation, evaporation, and runoff, is a crucial part of hydrologic routing. Hydrologists can develop models that mimic how water flows through a river system in various scenarios by examining these variables. Predicting floods, controlling water supply, and safeguarding ecosystems that depend on a constant flow of water al

How to apply Cat Swarm Optimization Techniques in real life optimization problems ?

Techniques known as "Cat Swarm Optimisation" (CSO) are based on an optimization algorithm inspired by nature and the collective behavior of cats. CSO mimics the cooperation and communication among a group of cats to tackle complex optimization issues. It is inspired by the hunting behavior and social interactions of cats. These methods' capacity to efficiently explore broad search spaces and identify ideal answers has drawn a lot of attention in recent years.  The capacity of CSO approaches to managing high-dimensional and non-linear optimization issues is one of its main benefits. Because of this, they can be used in a variety of industries and domains, including data mining, engineering, and finance. Furthermore, CSO algorithms are renowned for their resilience and capacity to function in unpredictable and noisy conditions.  You may also like : HydroGeek: The newsletter for researchers of water resources https://hydrogeek.substack.com/ Baipatra VSC: Enroll for online c

Lecture Series on Water Resources Routing Part I

In water resource engineering, routing is an essential technique for forecasting the flow and distribution of water within a body of water. It entails analyzing flow rates, channel characteristics, and topography to determine water travel. Engineers can effectively manage water resources, including flood control, irrigation, and hydropower generation, by having a solid understanding of routing. It makes it possible to evaluate the effects of water flow accurately and to make well-informed decisions about the construction of infrastructure and flood mitigation techniques. Additionally, routing maximizes the distribution of water for irrigation, guaranteeing a sufficient supply and reducing waste. Reliable systems for gathering and tracking data are necessary for efficient routing tactics. Potential fixes can help get past obstacles in the way of implementing routing techniques. The first lecture in my series on routing is this one. You may also like :  HydroGeek: The newsletter for rese

How to use dynamic soaring by the Albatrosses in optimization?

What is dynamic soaring? The dynamic soaring mainly consists of four phases. Upward Bind Upward Climb Downward Bind Downward Dive This four-phase consists of a cycle which is referred to as Rayleigh’s Cycles as he was the first to identify this phenomenon by Albatrosses during their long-time flights. For more details refer to Richardson( 2011  &  2014 ), Uesaka et.al.( 2023 ), etc. Criteria of Dynamic Soaring In general, albatross soaring can be accomplished under the following conditions: (1) no wind, no waves, no soaring;(2) Wave-slope soaring can be accomplished in swell without wind; (3) Wind–shear soaring can be accomplished in wind without waves. What is Wind Shear Soaring? The average wind speed typically rises with height, starting at almost zero at the ocean's surface. Within about two meters of the water's surface, a thin boundary layer has the greatest vertical wind velocity gradient (largest wind shear) (Fig. 2). In this narrow wind–shear boundary layer close t

A Hillstation in the North East India facing acute water scarcity

Jampui is a hill station that has recently gained popularity due to its pristine environment, cloud mist in the morning, and peaceful atmosphere. However, it is also experiencing acute water scarcity. Jampui is located in the princely state of Tripura which is one of the seven sisters of North East India. Jampui Hills is a popular hill station in Tripura's North Tripura district. It is about 200 kilometers from Agartala and is the state's highest hill range. The hill range's average elevation is about 3,000 feet above sea level, which gives the hills their distinct weather and gives rise to the name Jampui, which means "Eternal Hills of Spring." The panoramic views from Jampui Hills encompass the Chittagong Hills, the Kanchanpur-Dasda Valley, and the hill ranges of Tripura and Mizoram. Buses connect Jampui Hills to the major cities of North East India. The nearest rail station is Kumarghat/Pencharthal Railway Station, which is approximately 90 kilometers from Vang
