Brief Description
The Flood Hydrology and Urban Runoff Modelling short course provides you with a practical training experience in flood calculation methods and flood routing through the application of deterministic, empirical and statistical analyses and real-world exercises. The EPA Storm Water Management Model (EPA-SWMM) will be demonstrated and introduced during the course as a tool for modelling urban drainage systems. As a dynamic rainfall runoff-simulation model, it will be used to effectively view and analyse both single-event and long-term (continuous) runoff simulations from urban areas (in terms of quantity and quality) to provide you with an appropriate problem- solving method in flood hydrology.
Learning Outcomes
After successfully completing this course, you will able to 
  • understand the fundamentals of flood estimation 
  • identify applicable flood estimation procedures 
  • recognise and be aware of potential long term hydrological changes • understand urban run-off and the various components that influence it, and 
  • perform storm water modelling of a catchment.
