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.
MicroDrainage functions covered include:
- Auditing to the Interim Code of Practice for SuDS & Code for Sustainable Homes
- Ascertain greenfield runoff rates
- Check greenfield volume balance
- SuDS Feasibility
- Assessing the viability of SuDS
- Anticipating storage volumes for a development
Auditing to comply with current standards to identify:
- Critical storm durations
- No flooding for 30 year return period
- Identify indicative flood flow paths for extreme return periods, accounting for climate change
- Check the depth, direction and velocity of overland flood routing
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.
