But it is highly recommended for those who want to attend Workshop B to attend Workshop A first as Workshop B requires knowledge of subject matters covered in Workshop A.

Seminar A (3 Days):

Day 1 & 2 covers an introduction to the changes in MSMA2 on design storm, design discharges using Rational Method and Time-Area Method, OSD, detention basin and sediment basin.

Day 3 covers the design of OSD to optimise the SSR requirements using Excel spreadsheet.

Seminar B (2 Days):

Day 1 covers the basic theories of detention basin design.

Day 2 covers hands-on training on detention basin design based on worked example solved using Excel spreadsheet.

Speaker: Ir. Dr. Quek Keng Hong.

IEM (Kuching):

Workshop A (3 days): 7,8,9 May, 2018
