How to Design Detention Basin Seminar at IEM, PJ on 13-3-2015

The seminar on design of detention basin will be held at the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM), Petaling Jaya on Friday 13 March, 2015.

As you are aware, the second edition of MSMA (MSMA2) was enforced on 1 July, 2012.

Based on our case studies for Kuala Lumpur, we found significant changes in major design parameters using MSMA2 as follows:

1. Design storm increased by up to 126%,
2. Design discharge using Rational Method increased by 131%,
3. OSD storage volume increased by up to 235%
4. Storage volume for wet sediment basin increased by 165% and
5. Detention basin increased by up to 130%.

The seminar covers the problems of applying MSMA2 in the design of detention basins.

Case studies have shown that the storage volume computed using MSMA2 is up to about 30% bigger than MSMA1 for Kuala Lumpur.

In this Seminar, we discuss the changes affecting the design of detention basin in MSMA2.

We will show you how to do this using spreadsheet and software.

We invite you to attend the seminar as follows:

Seminar Topic: How to Design Detention Basins Using MSMA2- Issues and Solutions.

Date: 13 March, 2015 (Friday) Time: 9:00 am to 5 pm.

Venue: C&S Lecture Room, Wisma IEM, Petaling Jaya

Fee: RM490 for early birds. Additional discount for company sending in more than 1 participant.

We have developed a new and innovative software (MSMAware) for MSMA2 that allows you to do the following effortlessly:

1. The software allows you to design detention basins using either MSMA1 or MSMA2.
2. Firstly, to compute the design storm for use in the design computation, you can click to select any one of the 135 stations in West Malaysia on a map, and the software will compute the design storm for you.
3. Secondly, to compute the discharge hydrographs using the Rational Method for use in detention basin computation, all you need to do is to select the nearest stations on a map, enter the catchment area and select the runoff coefficient and the software will compute the design discharge for you. You can also choose to apply the Time-Area Method for the computation of the discharge hydrographs.
4. Thirdly, for detention basin design, the software will apply MSMA1 or MSMA2.

We will show you how to do this using spreadsheet and software.

Benefits of our seminars:
1. Find out how you can design detention basin more economically and yet complies with the requirements of MSMA2.
2. You will get free detention basin spreadsheets worth RM1,850 and free Lite version of MSMAware worth RM8,000.
3. You will gain invaluable insight on MSMA2 from an expert with nearly 3 decades of industry experience.
4. You will qualify for valuable CPD hours from BEM by attending the seminar.
