Aron Negusse Asfaha studied the international course "WAREM - Water Resources Engineering and Management" at the University of Stuttgart from 2016 to 2019. His outstanding master thesis on "Optimal Design of Pressure Measurement for Stochastic Calibration of Water Distribution Hydraulic Models", which has now been awarded by the AQUA Study Award 2020 by the AQUA Foundation, was supervised by PD Dr.-Ing. Sergey Oladyshkin, Institute for Water and Environmental System Modelling and PR in the Cluster of Excellence SimTech. The thesis deals with the calibration problem of water distribution models, which are the key for any analysis, design evaluation or assessment to be performed on water supply pipe networks. His work thus transfers novel approaches, which originate from the research of the Cluster of Excellence SimTech, into practice.
