Stormwater Management for Non-Engineers
After participating in this course, you will be able to do the following:
- solve common hydrology and hydraulic engineering problems
- employ latest techniques in hydrology and hydraulic design procedures
- apply various analysis methods to estimate flows in rivers and drainage infrastructure
- assess the design of streams and rivers, culverts, bridge openings, drainage facilities, and stormwater management structures
Stormwater Management is a branch of engineering concerned with the study of water and the protection of people and property from the damaging effect of surface water.
The course was prepared for non-engineers and technicians who need a basic understanding of the three most commonly used branches of hydrotechnical engineering:
- Engineering hydrology
- Hydraulics of drainage infrastructure
- Drainage and stormwater management
This course provides the fundamentals without delving into complicated mathematical formulas. Lectures will include real life examples and simple hands-on exercises and problem-solving.
- Day 1- Hydrology and Hydraulics
- Introduction - Engineering Concepts
- Hydrologic Cycle
- Simplifications for ease of assessment
