Development of computational infrastructure for the hydrodynamic simulation of the hydrosystem downstream of Asomata Dam

[proj_id=204]

Duration: February 2024–May 2024

Budget: €29 500

Commissioned by: Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering

Contractor: Hydroelectric Power Plants Operation Department

Project director: A. Efstratiadis

Principal investigator: N. Mamassis

The project aims at the development of a suitable computational infrastructure for the hydrodynamic simulation of the hydrosystem downstream of Asomata Dam, in Aliakmonas River. This will be applied for various outflow scenarios through the hydroelectric plant and the dam spillway, which will be the upstream boundary of the study area, extending over about 2800 km2, of which approximately 2200 km2 are occupied by the catchment of the so-called Peripheral Trench (T66). The final product will be a computer system for one-dimensional analysis, in a HEC-RAS environment, and the associated data infrastructure, as backgrounds for the hydrodynamic simulation and, eventually, flood risk assessment across the vulnerable areas downstream of Asomata dam.
