The Urban Flood Resilience research project was funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and was led by Colin Thorne and Emily O'Donnell at the University of Nottingham. It ran from 2016 until 2021.
The project was multi-disciplinary, utilising the skills of academics specialising in flood inundation modelling, computational fluid dynamics, sediment and debris processes, urban drainage infrastructure, flood risk management, stakeholder engagement, urban metabolism, GIS, urban water management, transport resilience, applied infrastructure and planning.
The research project focused on three key themes:
1. Engineering design to enhance service delivery
2. Engineering development for resource use across the drought-flood spectrum
3. Urban flood risk management at the heart of urban planning at multiple scales
