Studying Distribution System Hydraulics and Flow Dynamics to Improve Water Utility Operational Decision Making
Dr. Ormsbee, with the University of Kentucky, is working on improving the water utility operational decision making process (including responses to contamination events) by studying distribution system hydraulics and flow dynamics. Dr.
Dr. Sebastian Bryson with the University of Kentucky is identifying existing concepts and developing new ones to reduce the risk from water-side attacks to dams and gated spillways. The approach is to identify or develop cost effective concepts for reducing risks to dams from water-borne and underwater threats. Concepts to be investigated include passive and less-than-lethal options so that the protection schemes are viable options for owners and operators. One mitigation measure that will be investigated is establishing appropriate buffer zones around critical facilities.
Dr. Issam Harik with the University of Kentucky will be leading the project, the Development of New Materials for the Transportation Sector.
The objective of this project is to develop new technologies or applications for existing technologies to reduce the hazards and repairs associated with transportation structure damage due to high intensity fires. Because numerous well‐developed fire protection technologies alre
The Incident Management Decision Support System (IMDSS) with the IMDSS-H add-on are web-based software tools and portals that organize incident-related information for public health first-responders in rural environments, supporting their efforts to save lives and protect property.
