Description
This 2-hour online course discusses the basics of sizing a culvert using the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) program HY-8 Version 7.0. This program is available free from FHWA and is a quick and simple tool to use. Engineers are often requested to determine the appropriate size of a culvert that crosses under a roadway. While large highway projects that involve many culverts should be left to experienced hydraulic engineers, the sizing of a single culvert is not likely to require substantial experience. This basic course is intended for engineers that do not have much experience in sizing culverts or have never used the HY-8 program.


The course will include information on data necessary to evaluate a culvert, selection of appropriate design parameters and basic analysis of results.
