Hydraulic Design of Storm Sewers (RV-11348AW)

Start Date
End Date
Storm sewers are the hidden workhorse of our infrastructure. They are designed to ensure our urbanized communities remain dry and maintain safety during extreme events. For this reason it is important that storm sewers are designed with special detail and care. The design of storm sewer systems is centered in two core theories, the conservation of mass and energy. Engineers, Architects, Contractors and other professionals from the A/E industry will have a solid understanding of the design of efficient storm sewers at the end of the course. A sample spreadsheet will be provided as part of the course to help practitioners in the design of storm sewers.

Learning Outcomes
1) Determine time of concentration using three key elements in order to select adequate rainstorm intensities.
2) Interpret intensity-duration-frequency curves to develop storm sewer designs that safeguard the health, safety and welfare of the public.
3) Use the rational method to calculate peak storm events.
4) Design in 10 steps the placement of storm inlets and how to calculate the contributing runoff area.
5) Use 10 steps to develop the hydraulic design for storm sewer inlets using Manning's and Bernoulli's Energy equations.
6) Calculate ponding areas above storm drains based on inlet capacity.
