A comprehensive introduction to sewerage system design and analysis.
This is an essential course for anyone new to storm or foul water design and analysis. It is also necessary for those wishing to update their knowledge, gain an understanding of the latest industry best practice and avoid common mistakes.
The course starts with a short introduction to the drainage industry, relevant legislation and common terminology. Users then complete a series of short exercises designed to introduce new concepts one stage at a time. Each day ends with some longer exercises based around real world examples.
The course covers the main functionality of MicroDrainage, including:
A course designed to help engineers release the full productive power of MicroDrainage.
All engineers designing or checking drainage networks that are looking to learn how to use the graphical interface and tackle more challenging design problems. A good practical knowledge of MicroDrainage is required or attendance on the Design Fundamentals and Storage, Attenuation and Simulation courses should be completed before coming on this course.
Learn how to draw complete drainage designs faster and more efficiently by using the graphical design features of DrawNet. Also explore some of the solutions MicroDrainage provides challenging design problems such as connecting to existing networks and dealing with multiple networks.
MicroDrainage functions covered include:
Also covered are the advanced features of:
The course combines tutorials and training notes with hands-on exercises and tutor-led worked examples.
A general introduction to the use of MDSuDS at pre-planning stage to assess the existing topography and pre-development situation in terms of greenfield runoff rates and volume. The course then covers how MDSuDS can show the extent of each SuDS system and generate scenarios to ensure that the maximum potential for the land has been delivered for the client with the minimum land take.
Developers, consultants and approving authorities would all benefit when motivated to implement a SuDS solution.
The course covers the key aspects of a SuDS design from concept through to detail design to provide evidence to an approving authority covering water quantity, quality and SuDS treatment train scenarios.
All the essential skills required to provide a compliant SuDS design, including:
Practical examples of designing individual SuDS structures and how to develop a SuDS ‘system’ will be covered
The course combines tutor-led teaching with worked examples and hands-on learning. Comprehensive course notes are provided.
Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) are now a central requirement of planning policies in the UK and Ireland. Approving authorities will not accept plans that do not consider SuDS solutions. MicroDrainage has played a central role in making SuDS a practical, measurable addition to the engineer's options for control and flood prevention.
All drainage and development control engineers within consultancies, their clients, and the approving authorities and regulators. A good knowledge of MicroDrainage> is essential.
As well as the practical application of the MicroDrainage SuDS capabilities, engineers will gain an understanding of SUDS policies in England, Wales, Scotland & Ireland.
Course covers the five stage SuDS design methodology applied within MicroDrainage, including:
The course combines tutor-led teaching with worked examples and hands-on learning. A final design exercise provides the opportunity to integrate different SuDS structures fully into the treatment train.
Assessment of greenfield conditions are rapidly becoming a pre-requisite for planning approval. The hydrology capabilities within MicroDrainage enable engineers to design systems that consider the pre-development conditions of the site and can include Greenfield areas in their design. In addition, mapping existing flooding problems is an integral part of flood risk assessments and surface water management plans. Flood risk management tools are needed at the before and throughout a drainage design to ensure developments are suitably designed for exceedence.
Drainage and development control engineers within consultancies, EA, SEPA, Local and County Councils. A good practical knowledge of MicroDrainage is essential.
Engineers will use MicroDrainage to keep site discharges within pre-development runoff limits and to incorporate Greenfield areas into their designs. Important aspects of flood risk assessment work are all covered by this course to ensure compliance with the statutory service levels for flood planning.
The course covers the latest hydrology techniques, including:
An overview of the theory and the statutory requirements are included in the course. Delegates will be guided through worked examples to illustrate the methodology, which include sites bounded by rivers and streams.
A course designed to help checking/development control engineers to assess a Micro Drainage submission.
All engineers checking drainage networks for compliance with SFA, the Interim Code of Practice for SuDS, the Code for Sustainable Homes, Climate Change and Exceedance. A good practical knowledge of MicroDrainage is required.
The impact of a new development upon the existing catchment is a key aspect of this course, which covers determining greenfield runoff, SuDS feasibility, storage estimates, hydraulic performance and a full range of testing from minimum pipe diameters to self-cleansing velocities.
MicroDrainage functions covered include:
Auditing to comply with current standards to identify:
The course combines tutorials and training notes with hands-on exercises and tutor-led worked examples. Please note that this course has been developed for checking/development control engineers and contains elements of courses C, F & G.
