You will receive practical advice on the hydraulic design of bridges on this one day course. Details of current key references and best practice guides will be provided. The exercises will include hand calculation for bridge design and computer analysis of bridge hydraulics/afflux.
This course can also follow on from the Scour at Bridges course to provide the second day of a two day course.
This course is aimed at:
- Any professional who is likely to be involved in the design of hydraulic assessment of bridges.
- Managers and regulators involved in consenting works in watercourses.
By the end of this course you will have a good appreciation of the principles of bridge hydraulic design plus knowledge of environmental, maintenance and health and safety issues.
