dc.descriptionWhen high levels of urban development, and erratic patterns of high precipitation combine in a small geographical area, there is a significant increase in the risk of human and/or material losses due to flooding and related incidents. With the objective of providing a method for the estimation of precipitation patterns in an area with a high risk of flooding, the current document describes the design and implementation of a neural-network-based system as a potential solution. With the use of TRMM satellite data, and ground station flow measurements in the Juan Díaz river, two models are developed for the estimation of the behavior of these magnitudes: one for estimating precipitation levels based on time, and one that estimates the flow of the river as a function of precipitation.Keywords: modeling, estimation, precipitation, flow, river.en-US

  • 2017: 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference - Panama (ESTEC 2017) [115]
    The 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference (ESTEC 2017) organized by the Universidad Tecnologica de Panama (UTP) is the most relevant conference, engineering-based, of our country. The topics of the conference are focused on areas of interest of Panama and the Latin America region, including: agroindustry, astronomy, bioengineering, education on engineering, energy and environment, ICT engineering, infrastructure and construction, logistics and transportation, manufacturing processes and material science, robotic, automation and artificial intelligence. This year, ESTEC partnered with IEEE Panama Section to ensure the quality of the peer-reviewed process; we received more than 180 full papers from 20 countries and 50% of those were accepted to participate in the conference and will be published in the conference’s proceeding. Furthermore, the conference included technical tours to the Cocoli’s Gate and the Miraflores Visitors Center of The Panama Canal and to the Wind Power Park in Penonome, Panama.
