Abstract

As its point of departure, this research contends that it must be possible to create a parametric design tool capable of simulating rainwater detention ponds in a 3D model, with a true size, based on relevant parameters. With a focus on site design, a preliminary study shows that it is possible to create a parametric tool capable of automatically calculating and visualising detention ponds. The premise is that the detention ponds must have the required size to store rainwater during heavy rainfall events to avoid flooding further down the hydraulic system. By merging the flexible structure of parametric modeling with the quantitative facts of stormwater management, the tool is able, in the early stages of the design process, to provide the designer with vital information regarding the size of detention ponds required to cope with different rainfall events.
