    • Storm characteristics (e.g., storm frequency, rainfall measurement and distribution)
    • Runoff analysis (e.g., Rational and SCS/NRCS methods, hydrographic application, runoff time of concentration)
    • Detention/retention ponds
    • Pressure conduit (e.g., single pipe, force mains, Hazen-Williams, Darcy-Weisbach, major and minor losses)
    • Energy and/or continuity equation (e.g., Bernoulli)

Remember, this is a process. If you will:

  • spend time every day gathering information
  • work as many example problems as possible
  • assemble the resources into an organized system

… you will be successful.

If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask.

To Your Success …
