Webinar Wednesday: Manning's Equation for Stormwater Management

Presented by: Thomas A. Seybert, PE, Ph.D.

Date: October 21, 2015

Description: The webinar covers the application of Manning’s open channel flow equation to analyze and solve simple design problems regularly encountered in stormwater management. Four forms of the equation will be presented. Nine example problems will be covered to illustrate (1) channel flow analysis, (2) circular pipe sizing, (3) travel time calculation and (4) channel sizing for runoff conveyance. 

Presenter: THOMAS A. SEYBERT, PE, Ph.D. is Professor of Engineering at Penn State Wilkes-Barre and has been affiliated with the Penn State Surveying Program since January 1996. He is responsible for the delivery of the stormwater management and land development design courses in the baccalaureate surveying program. He is also responsible for the introductory course in surveying taught to both associate and baccalaureate degree students. His research and consulting interests include mitigation of stormwater runoff issues and watershed protection planning. He is the author of the book “Stormwater Management for Land Development Design.” He is actively involved in continuing and distance education efforts at Penn State in both surveying and engineering. He has participated in the annual Pennsylvania Surveyors' Conference since 1991 and he is the current chairperson of the annual Penn State short course "Computational Methods in Stormwater Management." He received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from Penn State. He is a registered professional engineer in Pennsylvania.

Note: Members of other Professional societies such as PSPE, NSPS, ACSM, or other state surveying societies may register at the discounted price. In order to receive the necessary code, registrants must contact PSLS with proof of membership. psls@psls.org
