Dr. Yiping Guo awarded grant from McMaster Centre for Climate ChangeNovember 28, 2017

The Department of Civil Engineering would like to congratulate Dr. Yiping Guo on his grant from the McMaster Centre for Climate Change for his drainage system design adapting to changing climate conditions

Congratulations to Dr. Yiping Guo, who received a seed grant from the McMaster Centre for Climate Change for his proposal titled "Drainage system design adapting to changing climate conditions". This grant offers $7,000/year for 2 years and is supported by McMaster's VP of Research.

Dr. Guo’s research mainly concentrates on the planning, design and operation of urban drainage systems and water distribution networks.  Probabilistic and stochastic models are developed to improve our understanding of the hydrologic and hydraulic processes involved in the operation of the drainage network, flood control, stormwater management, and water distribution systems.  Impacts of climate change and remediation measures are investigated.  Alternative planning and design approaches and modelling methodologies are proposed, tested and promoted.  A comprehensive set of analytical probabilistic models have being developed for the planning and design of urban stormwater management systems and tested for many North American locations.
