Computational Methods in Stormwater Management

Nittany Lion Inn,  State College, PA

August 10-12, 2016

Register now to attend this three-day short course in computer methods for stormwater management design professionals. Presentation of topics include a comprehensive array of hydrologic and hydraulic tools for stormwater management design, including detention facility design and structural BMP design. Participants will use the Virginia Tech/Penn State Urban Hydrology Model (VT/PSUHM) version 8.3 to solve problems in the hands-on workshops. Attendees must bring a Microsoft Windows-based laptop computer to the course. Contact Thomas Seybert for questions or additional details about the computer requirements.

This course is intended for stormwater facility designers with previous exposure to urban runoff calculations involving NRCS (SCS) methods, reservoir routing principles, and Rational methodologies. Special emphasis will be on fundamental calculations for detention facility design, particularly outlet structure design. The multiple stage routing model (MSRM) in VT/PSUHM will be used to assist in understanding this process. Because hands-on computer work is emphasized in the course, the fundamental concepts behind these methods will not be presented in great detail. However, specific details for each of the methods presented will be documented or referenced in the supplemental short-course notes. Each participant is encouraged to bring a hand calculator for occasional use.
