Water Balance Optimization of Non-Traditional Water Resources Utilization in Green Building Based on Landscape Water Regulation Function


Article Preview

According to the extremely uneven situation of monthly rainfall in China, in order to both improve utilization efficiency of non-traditional water resources and realize economy applicable in green residential districts, an optimization method of monthly water dynamic balance of non-traditional water resources utilization in green building based on landscape water regulation function was put forward. The optimization method was made full use of large capacity of landscape water regulation function, combined with monthly water consumption law between supply and demand of non-traditional water resources in districts. And this method was applied in a green residential demonstration district in western China.
