A course designed to help checking/development control engineers to assess a MicroDrainage submission.
Who will benefit?
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.
What will they learn?
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.
- The choice and application of rainfall.
- The importance of how much rainfall makes it to a sewer.
- Simulation best practice.
- Spotting when models are unstable and what to do about it.
- Calculating and defining limits of discharge
- Storage design including SuDS design
- Designing for exceedance
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.
