This follow-up to the Introduction to DRAINS workshop concentrates on small to medium sized drainage systems. It covers Australian design methods for roof and property drainage, and for on-site stormwater detention (OSD) storages. It also deals with drainage design in cases where existing developments, infrastructure and exposure to flooding impose constraints on developers.

This workshop is targeted at designers of building services and infill properties who have completed the Introduction to DRAINS workshop, or who have working experience of DRAINS.

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 the skills to:

  1. understand design requirements applying to property drainage systems in Australia,
  2. model surface and pipe drainage on properties using DRAINS,
  3. model and size OSD systems,
  4. understand the complexities of designing infill systems,
  5. use DRAINS to develop solutions for developments in flood-affected sites, and
  6. know how to apply the premium hydraulic model in situations that are otherwise difficult to analyse.
