Course Objective

This continuing education course is written specifically for professional engineers with the objective of relating to and enhancing the practice of engineering.

Course Description

212-A Comparison of Runoff Estimation Techniques

This course is intended for engineers who deal with any kind of stormwater management. Two major types of models (The Rational method and the SCS Method) are discussed in detail. In addition, examples are provided for each technique and a comparison example is given in which a problem is solved independently using both methods.

The overall objective of this course is to provide a detailed guide to both the Rational Method and the SCS Method. In addition, a third method is also discussed with a design example. The course also includes a number of photographs which are provided to help the engineer decide on runoff coefficient values and to aid in the calculation of the time of concentration.

An outstanding course. Very much information here. The material is well written and detailed in explaining all equations and the basis for the theories of runoff estimation. The examples are clearly explained and all steps shown. The author clearly explained the differences of the Rational Method v. SCS Method. The photographs included are extremely helpful in explaining coefficients and how to assess different terrains. The one item that really stands out is how the author, in the closing Conclusions, neatly and orderly wrapped up all the data, method of observing, calculations, etc., into a concise explanation of the presented material. This format method provided a quick way to do refresher study or actually begin one's own design and estimation in practice. The material explaining the Stankowski Method was personally used and compared to the aforementioned Methods. This course has real value and substance and provided new information. I plan on taking additional courses provided by the author.
