PhD Position Asset Management for Blue Green Infrastructure
PhD Position Asset Management for Blue Green Infrastructure
Blue green infrastructures (BGI), such as bioswales, green roofs, permeable pavements and retention spaces in parks, are increasinly applied to mititgate climate change effects. The current focus is the design, placement, construction, development, and improvement of BGIs. However, BGIs need to be operated, maintained, and rehabilitated to ensure expected performance. While for grey urban drainage systems, asset management is well established, asset management for blue green infrastructure is still at an early stage of development. This PhD project aims to contribute to the development of inpection, monitoring and rehabilitation techniques and strategies for BGI This research is part of the Knowledge programme urban Drainage, funded by the Dutch urban Drainage sector.
