How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Projects (3)
Achieving applicable real-time rules for operating complicated multi-reservoir water resources systems. Using intelligent models for establishing optimal adaptive applicable rules. Developing a robust framework for finding optimal allocation throughout water resources systems in different probable conditions.
This project aims to develop a semi-intelligent framework for facilitating decision making processes in the field of water resources management in Great Karun downstream of Gotvand and Dez reservoirs. Great Karun is one of the most important basins In IRAN that has to serve main purposes including public and environmental water supply, irrigation, hydropower generation and flood control. Managing the huge quantity of data that has to be considered is a key factor that makes water resources decision problems more complicated. Integrating different simulation and optimization (environmental, hydrological and water resources) models with multiple-criteria evaluation procedures in the form of a Decision Support System helps decision makers to establish optimal operating strategies in various scenarios.
