The focus of this seminar will be enhancing the attendee's knowledge of the complex nature of Stormwater and Rainwater Management. The technical aspects of planning and design of urban infrastructure are complex. Advanced computer models and practices are common place and the practitioner is expected to have an in-depth knowledge of this complex topic. This seminar will provide a view of the details of advanced analytical techniques and computer models along with limitations in their application. This seminar will provide a detailed introduction to model accuracy and model verification.

The topics to be covered include:
  • The evolution of computer model techniques
  • Rainfall data, IDF Curves,
  • Derivation of Design Storms
  • Hydrograph method and constraints
  • Introduction to soil physics and rainwater movement in watersheds
  • Continuous modelling
  • Water quality modelling
  • Statistical and Regional analyses
  • Water Balance Methodology in Rainwater management
  • Question and answer / open discussion
Target Audience
The seminar will appeal to those engineers reviewing and undertaking complex stormwater and rainwater management assessments and designs in an urban setting. At the conclusion of the seminar, it is expected that participants will be able to understand and apply the complex concepts of stormwater and rainwater management in planning and design of urban infrastructure.
A basic understanding of stormwater and rainwater management using computer applications would be valuable.
