The aim of this paper is to classify and segment roofs using vertical aerial imagery in order to generate three-dimensional (3D) models. Such models can be used, for example, to evaluate the rainfall runoff from properties for rainwater harvesting and in assessing solar energy and roof insulation options. Aerial orthophotos and building footprints...
Chapter
In this work, a class of efficient experimental and numerical methods for recording sediment distributions in dam-break flows is developed and assessed. A new experimental rig is devised and built enabling high-speed and highly accurate images to be collected and evaluated. The novel aspect of the present study is that the results are broken down i...
Article
The two-dimensional modelling of shallow water flows over multi-sediment erodible beds is presented. A novel approach is developed for the treatment of multiple sediment types in morphodynamics. The governing equations include the two-dimensional shallow water equations for hydrodynamics, an Exner-type equation for morphodynamics, a two-dimensional...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to present a new numerical model for shallow water flows over heterogeneous sedimentary layers. It is already several years since the single-layered models have been used to model shallow water flows over erodible beds. Although such models present a real opportunity for shallow water flows over movable beds, th...
Article
We present an efficient and conservative Eulerian-Lagrangian method for solving two-dimensional hydrostatic multilayer shallow water flows with mass exchange between the vertical layers. The method consists of a projection finite volume method for the Eulerian stage and a method of characteristics to approximate the numerical fluxes for the Lagrang...
