Every year, Stormwater Queensland is proud to hold its annual “Winter School”. What is Winter School you might ask? Well, for those of you who have attended previously, the Winter School is a fantastic chance for all to brush-up on their stormwater management skills and possibly learn a thing or two, including updates on new or revised industry methods and applications. You get to learn one-on-one with industry experts and network with others in various stormwater management disciplines at the same time.
This year we are holding three full-days of workshops. These workshops are:
● DAY 1 – HEC-RAS 2D
This one day workshop is designed for those looking to make their first step into the 2D modeling world, along with seasoned professionals looking for a refresh on up to date modern techniques.
Key aspects covered by the course:
- Introduction to HecRas
- Key input parameters for 2D modeling
- Modeling of real life case studies
This course will be run by Krey Price. Krey is a civil engineer and project manager with international experience in water resources. He is engaged with computational modeling, engineering design, and project management for flood mitigation, mine rehabilitation, river and wetland restoration, Stormwater management and catchment assessment projects.
● DAY 2 – ARR Workshop – Neil Collins and Martin Giles
This one day workshop is set to cover off on one of the biggest changes to the Stormwater Industry in 30 years – ARR 2016.
Key points that will be covered in this one day workshop.
Overview of ARR16
- Key changes 87 vs. 16
- How to put together a Stormwater design or flood study using ARR16 (key emphasis on the new temporal patterns and ensemble storms)
- Key focus on Chapter 9: Urban Development
This course will be run by Martin Giles. Martin has 28 years’ experience, specializing in hydraulic and environmental investigations. Modeling work undertaken by Martin has included complex floodplain systems and the application of dynamic modeling to urban Stormwater design.
● DAY 3 – Stream Management – Misko Ivezich
This one day workshop will take you down the journey of stream management (fluvial geomorphology). This course will give designers the information and experience required to make informed design decisions that will result in a positive environmental outcome
The key concepts covered by this course:
- Fundamentals of Fluvial Geomorphology (including case studies)
- Fundamentals on waterway management
- Real life case study discussion
This course will be run by Misko Ivezich. Misko is an environmental engineer with core interests and skills in the complex interactions between hydrology, hydraulics and fluvial geomorphology. Misko has strong geomorphic field assessment skills having inspected hundreds of waterways across eastern Australia.
Thanks to our host and sponsor we have been able to reduce the cost so to ensure you receive a valuable and rewarding participation.
