Duration: 
1.0 day(s)

Overview


One day course providing practical advice on the hydraulic design of bridges.  This course is ‘stand alone’, but also follows on from the Scour at Structures  course to provide the second day of a two day course.


Who should attend


The course is designed for any professional who is likely to be involved in the design of hydraulic assessment of bridges.  It is also relevant to managers and regulators involved in consenting works in watercourses.


Learning outcomes


Following the course, delegates should have a good appreciation of the principles of bridge hydraulic design plus knowledge of environmental, maintenance and health and safety issues.  Details of current key references and best practice guides will be provided.   The exercises will include hand calculation for weir design and computer analysis of bridge hydraulics/afflux.
