About this Unit
Water resources projects are large infrastructure projects requiring huge capital expenditure. In addition, multiple options are usually available to meet the project goals but at different costs and under varying constraints. This unit presents the application of optimisation techniques to select the best project from a list of competing projects. Applications of these techniques to optimally allocate available water resources are discussed. These are presented within the context of maximising the return of investment.
