Recent Research Transfer

Cofounder in July 2013 and President of the spinoff company Innovation Decision Environment Awareness Research Transfer srl (IDEA-RT) aiming at a just in time transfer of the most recent enhancements of the technical-scientific research in the field of Hydroinformatics, data-modelling and water distribution system analysis, planning and management. The key idea is to transfer tools to students, technicians and researchers by means professional MS-Office Excel functions.

Water distribution network analysis, planning and management

WDNetXL: a smart tool for integrated water distribution network (WDN) analysis, planning and management. It is a suite of MS-Office Excel functions, which entail several typical and innovative function as decision support tools for WDNs management. It is the European alternative to EPANET package.

WQNetXL: a smart tool for water quality in WDN. It is a suite of MS-Office Excel functions, which entail several typical and innovative water quality and are based on the enhanced hydraulics of WDNetXL. It is the European alternative to EPANET package for water quality.

Hydroinformatics and Data analysis-modelling

ANN MOGA-XL: a multi-objective strategy to design Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). It is a suite of MS-Office Excel functions allowing designing and training any data-modelling purpose.

EPR MOGA-XL: a genetic programming strategy to model data in order to get symbolic formulation of models. It is a suite of MS-Office Excel functions allowing performing symbolic data-driven modelling. It is especially useful for data from environmental phenomena and worldwide used in many fields of civil engineering.
