Newly updated SuDS Design training - based on CIRIA 2015 SuDS Manual (C753)
This is a great SuDS - aka as #LID or Low Impact Development in North America
Newly updated Designing SuDS training 26-27 January 2016, LondonBook now
SuDS - helping create better places to live, work and play
This intensive two-day course has been developed to complement current Non-Statutory Technical SuDS Standards and the updated 2015 version of the CIRIA SuDS Manual (C753).
The newly updated SuDS training can enable you to plan, design, evaluate and manage sustainable drainage in line with good practice and National Standards, enabling you to understand what makes a successful scheme.
Why attendDelegates will:
keep up-to-date with current legislation and requirements of regulatory authorities
learn current design approaches
understand key objectives and principles learning how to apply the SuDS approach using real life case studies
learn how to design SuDS for difficult sites such as high density housing or contaminated industrial sites
learn how to design SuDS that are robust and require low maintenance, and are safe
benefit from and share experiences and knowledge with our expert trainers (a landscape architect and engineer) and the other delegates
obtain CPD accreditation by attending a nationally recognised SuDS training course.
Who should attend
Civil/drainage engineers, landscape architects, architects and flood risk managers working in client, consulting or contracting organisations, developers, local authorities, highway authorities, sewerage undertakers, environmental regulators and manufacturers and suppliers.
Comment: A really nice water analogy for the field properties Divergence, Curl and Gradient from the Blog Starts With a Bang
....it's pretty mathematically intensive, but what's missing from most textbooks and E&M courses are physical explanations of what the mathematics means. For instance, I've started teaching about fields, and pretty much every textbook out there goes on and on about the properties of fields. They say you can do three things to fields, take the gradient, divergence, orcurl of them. (Are you asleep yet? I'm sorry!) What do these things mean? An easy way to picture it is in terms of water. If you placed a drop of water anywhere on, say,Earth, the magnitude and direction of how it rolls down is the gradient of the Earth's elevation. If you let that drop of water flow, as it goes downhill, it can either spread out or converge to a narrower stream. When we quantify that, that's what the divergence of the field is. And finally, when that water is …
Soffit Level (pipe technology)The top point of the inside open section of a pipe or box conduit. The soffit is the highest point of the internal surface of a pipe or culvert at any cross-section. The soffit is also referred to as the pipe obvert. So it is not quite the Crown of the Pipe. Here is an image I found that hopefully explains it better.
