After participating in this course, you will be able to:
Understand the surface hydrology theory necessary to assess urban stormwater runoff
Establish sub-catchment boundaries and hydrologic properties
Quantify stormwater runoff using both the rational method and the EPA SWMM hydrologic engine
Understand the basic stormwater management techniques, and perform planning level sizing/assessment of the different stormwater management techniques
Participants will need to bring their own laptop with EPA SWMM 5 already installed to this course. A copy of EPA SWMM 5 can be downloaded for free from the EPA website listed below:
Werner de Schaetzen, Ph.D., P.Eng.
Werner de Schaetzen, Ph.D., P.Eng. is a leading expert in computer modeling of urban systems. His work on genetic algorithm optimization applied to water systems has gained him both international recognition and numerous award prizes. Werner de Schaetzen, is also the leading author of over 30 papers published in international journals, conference proceedings and internal research reports. He has also conducted in person training for over 2,500 engineers in systems modeling, optimization and analysis in Canada, USA and UK. He also designed, implemented and maintained several hydraulic modeling software applications. Thomas Barnard, Ph.D., P.E. is GeoAdvice Technical Director. Thomas Barnard, Ph.D., P.E. has over 30 years of experience in the field of stormwater drainage system modeling and analysis along with a decade of experience working for two leading modeling software companies in the USA. He has written several user manuals and books on the use of hydraulic and hydrologic models in engineering practice. His most recent work was the development of geospatial data integration protocols with hydraulic and hydrologic models.
