Abstract

This study aims at integrating results from large-scale models into Decision Support Systems (DSSs), so that the effects of measures can be rapidly assessed for use in the design, evaluation, construction and maintenance of major civil engineering systems. To fulfil this aim these models must be reduced in size and computation time. In hydroscience, large-scale numerical models are often of order 100,000. Consequently, model simulations require long computation times. In this paper we apply a systematic, generic reduction tool, which can extract the essential patterns
