Course Synopsis:

Did you know?  The Rational Method, developed over 100 years ago, is widely used for estimating design runoff from urban areas. The Rational Formula, popular because of its simplicity in application, is suited mainly to sizing culvert, storm drains, or channels to accommodate drainage from small areas, generally less than 200 acres.

This course presents explanations and examples to give a better understanding of problems in the design of drainage facilities, and outlines convenient methods of estimating design capacities for drainage facilities.

Course Objectives:

This course teaches the following specific engineering knowledge and skills regarding Surface Hydrology:

  • Introduction on the design of drainage facilities

  • Applications of understanding the design of drainage facilities

  • Methods of estimated design capacities for drainage facilities
