This course provides a detailed introduction to urban roadway drainage design. Design guidance for solving basic problems encountered in urban roadway drainage design is provided. The topics are hydrology including rational equation, soil conservation method, regression equations, and synthetic hydrographs; and highway drainage including gutter flow, roadway inlet interception, storm drain systems, energy and hydraulic grade lines, detention ponds, and stormwater management.
The 4-day course includes the basic 3-day course, plus presentation of the 1-day course FHWA-NHI-135028 Stormwater Pump Station Design.
Highway designers with limited experience in drainage design, but familiar with mathematical concepts such as algebra and geometry and have some working background in hydrology and hydraulics.
