A practical course on flood calculation methods and flood routing will be presented. The application of the theory by working through practical exercises will be undertaken. Flood calculations methods such as deterministic, empirical and statistical analysis will be applied in the exercises. The popular freeware software program, EPASWMM will be demonstrated and introduced as a tool for the modeling of urban drainage system. The EPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) is a dynamic rainfall-runoff simulation model used for single event or long-term (continuous) simulation of runoff quantity and quality from primarily urban areas. After this course, you will be in a position to calculate the design flood and perform a simulation, routing this through a storm water system using EPASWMM.
CBM Training was established in May 1999 with the aim of providing short duration, high quality and high intensity training courses to companies in South Africa.
