Design of Urban Drainage and Stormwater Management Facilities Workshop
After attending this course, you will be able to:
- Strengthen your skills in urban drainage system design
- Apply your knowledge of basic hydrology and hydraulics to drainage design problems
- Develop a better understanding of technical design issues by focusing on related planning and environmental impact considerations
- Apply your learnt techniques to enhance the protection of property owners from flood drainage and reduce pollution at a lower cost
To design an effective urban drainage and stormwater management system, knowledge of the technical design principles for each system component is required. After a brief refresher of basic hydrology, this seminar focuses on the practical application of sound planning and design practices, specific stormwater management techniques, and the latest trends toward alternative green infrastructure designs.
Case studies will be presented to demonstrate, in practical terms, the pros and cons of alternative strategies, how to avoid pitfalls and the characteristics of successfully designed systems. The uniqueness of this course is its emphasis on hands-on exercises for designing the various components of drainage and stormwater management systems.
