Like our entire environment, the urban water management is under constant change. In addition to the ongoing necessary maintenance of the existing infrastructure in the coming decades, major challenges in this area are climate change, demographic changes and increased environmentalism. In order to master these tasks, precise and comprehensive planning is required, in which different aspects such as the changing climate and other ecological and hydraulic issues must be taken into account and coordinated. Digital hydrodynamic sewage network models are a very good tool, yet these are often not taken into account for various reasons. The first part of this thesis provides an overview of the basics of hydrodynamic sewage network modelling and summarizes already gained insights. Furthermore, some of the extensive applications of such models are presented and illustrated by examples. In the second part, the focus is on practical modelling using the case study of an Austrian municipality. A (partially) automated flow chart model developed by Pöchhacker (2018) is examined in order to validate and further optimize it. The aim is to gather and document new insights when creating and applying a hydrodynamic sewage network model in order to avoid or at least reduce any arising problems and challenges for future applications. Specific guidelines and recommendations for generating and applying sewage network models are sparsely documented, hence this thesis is intended to reduce this research gap. Basically, hydrodynamic models are not new in the urban water management – but there is still a lack of know-how when using or generating them or simply the lack of available data. The latter problem disappears almost entirely with the advancement of digital information systems. Therefore, it is now up to gather and document information and knowledge in this research area in order to reduce possible obstacles of using this tool for modern sewage systems.
