This advanced workshop concentrates on the analysis capabilities of DRAINS, applied to (a) the planning of new drainage systems, and (b) identifying problem locations within existing drainage systems, to alleviate flooding and facilitate new developments.

This workshop will be useful to Council engineers involved with development approvals, asset management and flood mitigation, and consultants working on subdivision design and infill design. Attendees should have completed the DRAINS Core Workshop, or have significant working experience of DRAINS.

Set up and configuration of ARR 2016 procedures is assumed knowledge from the DRAINS Core Workshop.

The workshop is presented by Geoffrey O’Loughlin and Benjamin Kus, and runs from 9 am until 5 pm, with 6.5 hours of tuition. The topics covered include:

The workshop will provide participants with:

  1. an understanding of the complexities of modelling and analysing stormwater drainage systems, and the ability to devise solutions for developments in flood-affected areas,
  2. the skills to set up, run and interpret models of these in DRAINS, and
  3. knowledge of how to incorporate open channels, culverts and bridges into models and to apply storage routing models.
