Final Announcement of Upcoming 6th Workshop on MSMAM at UTM KL

Workshop Series on: "How to Successfully Design a Drainage System for Compliance with the New Urban Stormwater Management Manual by D.I.D.?"

I am pleased to announce the 6th Workshop will be held at the end of November, 2007. It consists of the following three 2-Day Workshops:

Workshop No. 1- " New Approach to Urban Drainage Design for Compliance with the "Urban Stormwater Management Manual for Malaysia" by D.I.D."

Workshop No. 2- " How to Design a Drainage System Using Free Public Domain Software to Satisfy the Requirements of the New Stormwater Manual by D.I.D." (Hydrologic and Hydraulic Modelling using HEC-HMS and HEC-RAS by U.S. Hydrologic Engineering Center)

Workshop No. 3- "How to Design Detention/Sediment Basins and Culverts for Compliance with the 'Urban Stormwater Management Manual for Malaysia' by D.I.D"

What are the major differences between the three workshops?

Workshop No. 1: Covers the basic principles of drainage design adopted in MSMAM and important design criteria and procedures including:

1. Design for major and minor storms.
2. Design storm computation.
3. Rational Method of computing peak discharge.
4. Time-Area Method of routing hydrograph.
5. Reservoir Storage Routing for detention basin design.

Workshop No. 2: Covers the design drainage system using two free software recommended in MSMAM ie, hydrologic software HEC-HMS and hydraulic software HEC-RAS developed by the Hydrologic Engineering Center of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Topics include:

1. Hydrologic model HEC-HMS computes the peak discharges and runoff hydrographs.
2. Hydraulic model HEC-RAS computes the corresponding backwater surface profile.
3. These two powerful but user-friendly software are indispensable tools for drainage engineers.
4. Compare to commercial software that cost thousands, the HEC-HMS and HEC-RAS can be downloaded for free.

Workshop No. 3: Covers the design of detention basin, dry and wet sediment basins and culverts. Topics covered include:

1. Design of detention or sediment basins using spreadsheet.
2. Wet and dry detention basin design.
3. Culvert design using nomographs and spreadsheet.

The pre-requisite for Workshop No. 3 is Workshop No. 1. In other words, it is strongly recommended that you attend Workshop No. 1 before you attend Workshop No. 3 as the latter requires some knowledge on subject matters covered in the former. There is no pre-requisite for the other workshops.

Dates of Upcoming Sixth Workshop:
Workshop No. 1- 27-28 November, 2007 (Tue & Wed)
Workshop No. 3- 29-30 November, 2007 (Thu & Fri)
Workshop No. 2- 3-4 December, 2007 (Mon & Tue)

Venue of the Workshop:
The workshop will be held in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Jalan Semarak, Kuala Lumpur (near KLCC).

Every participant will have access to a PC with broadband internet access.
