Return to the City of Water: Quantifying Change in the Venetian Canals

634 views

Published on

This project addressed the rumors spreading through the city of Venice, Italy regarding an alteration in the canal system. Residents have reported a change of flow and a movement of the watershed that influences the Venetian canals. Development and projects such as MOSE have exacerbated these concerns. This project addressed these rumors by analyzing the change of the canal system through hydrodynamics and tide delay studies.

  • Info:This WPI project team was the first to deal with the flow characteristics of the Venetian canals. They studied four canals in Dorsoduro at the northern end of the Grand Canal, set the standards for taking flow measurements, and devised methods for archiving results in dBASE IV and Lotus 123. Their measurements were inaccurate, however, due to the fact that they used a cork as a flotation device, which traveled with the surface water only, and was highly susceptible to the effects of wind and boat traffic.
  • More pictures – We should not have ‘standing’ pictures
  • Cittadei Rii -&gt; map of all hydro data that is in the book -&gt; model??Should be represented in this slide through picturesNo ‘standing’ pictures

Grazie Mille!<br />Acknowledgements<br />Team Rii would like to thank…<br />…The Istituzione Centro Previsioni e Segnalazioni Maree for taking the time out of their busy schedules to give us a tour of their facility, to provide us with daily tide forecasts through personal e-mail and to provide us with the details that we needed to complete this project.<br />...UNESCO and Insulafor providing us with data and information from their past studies that were crucial to our project<br />...And lastly to our advisors Professor Fabio Carrera and Professor James Cocolafor without their guidance we would not have been able to complete this project in such a successful manner.<br />
