SYNOPSIS

Hydrology is the science concerned with assessment of the natural distribution of water in time and space and with evaluating the impact of man-made changes on the distribution and quality of this water. The aim of the course is to study the hydrology and drainage requirements of urban areas. The course will cover the effects of urbanisation on the hydrological cycle, basic methods for hydrological analysis including rainfall-runoff models and flood frequency analysis. The course will also cover the concepts of dry-weather-flow, water quality modelling, steady-unsteady flow in pipes, basics of rainfall analysis, pipe hydraulics. Examples from real-life projects will be used to illustrate how the principles of urban hydrology are used to design solutions to resolve flooding and water quality problems.

Computational modelling of flow is one of the key design tools used to represent flow in urban drainage networks. The latest advances in computational modelling in urban drainage including topics like climate change sensitivity, overland 2D flow routing, integrated control and flood forecasting will also be covered. This year, a practical session will be included on how to build a model and use a computational model.

Who should attend:

• Those who are new in urban hydrology
• Engineers, foundation professionals who desire to have a basic
   understanding of urban drainage
• Those keen to understand the use and application of computational models like
   ISIS, InfoWorks CS/ICM/, Mike Urban/Mike 11 and PCSWMM.
• Bring along a laptop for a practical session for building and using a model
