This is a two-day workshop that will focus on the design of urban flood channels and flow analyses. The course covers overview of basic principles, and design procedures as to how to lay out the channel alignment and then how to design each reach to satisfy the criteria and constraints. The latest versions of UD-CHANNEL spreadsheet software will be distributed and used as design tool for hands-on practices.

Workshops will include hydraulic jump analysis, floodplain flow analysis, drop structure design, transition section design, and more. Graphic field examples will be presented with dramatic photos of sub-critical and super-critical flood flows in operation when properly designed and when the design does not fit the hydraulic conditions that actually occur. Much of the above will be done in a hands-on problem solving workshop format. Click Here for More Information and details about this class' content and instructors.
