  • discuss modelling process
  • discuss error sources in modelling
  • discuss the process of  model calibration
  • discuss the process of model validation
  • discuss model performance criteria
  • discuss different  approaches used in urban drainage modelling

Things to Do:

  • Watch the audio-lecture entitled "Modelling urban drainage part 1 to part 3”.
