This two day workshop provides a detailed introduction to urban roadway drainage design. Design guidance for solving basic problems encountered in urban roadway drainage design is provided. The topics are hydrology including rational equation, soil conservation method, regression equations, and synthetic hydrographs; and highway drainage including gutter flow, roadway inlet interception, storm drain systems, energy and hydraulic grade lines, detention ponds, and stormwater management.
By participating in this workshop, you will focus on the practical application of sound planning, design, construction and maintenance practices for highway drainage systems. The designed components include storm water facilities design, open channels and culverts. An understanding of the hydrological and hydraulic principles that underlie practical design will also be developed. Hands on working examples will be presented to demonstrate in very practical terms the pros and cons of alternative strategies, the pitfalls that can be avoided, and the design features that characterize successful installations. The uniqueness of this workshop is its emphasis on hands on exercises for designing the various components of highway drainage systems. You leave with the confidence that not only you understand the concepts but also you can apply the knowledge to your projects.
To provide participants with a working knowledge of current methods for designing effective highway drainage systems that minimize their construction and maintenance cost, with an overview of installation and maintenance practices and procedures.
This workshop will benefit anyone involved with the construction, design or design review of highway drainage systems, street, highway and storm water detention systems. Including municipal, geotechnical, structural, road, drainage, mining and forestry engineers, developers, planners, consultants, supervisors, and other technical personnel responsible for drainage facilities, open channels and culverts.
You will receive comprehensive course notes with all design charts, graphs and data that will serve for future use
With the “hands-on-how-to” exercises, you will gain valuable skills which you will be able to put to use immediately
You will receive the textbook Computer Applications in Hydraulic Engineering, 7th Edition which includes state of the art softwares: WaterGEMS, SewerGEMS, StormCAD, SewerCAD, PondPack, FlowMaster, CulvertMaster, as well as in class training on three software packages: CulvertMaster , FlowMaster and StormCAD with design examples
Materials Required: Standard engineering calculator with scientific functions and a laptop computer to use the software in class

Dr. Gamal Abdelaziz, P.Eng, MSc. has a Ph.D.
in Geotechnical Engineering from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.
Currently he is a senior civil engineer with SAGA Engineering, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Former adjunct professor at Ryerson university, Toronto, Ontario. He has over 30 years of experience in geotechnical and structural engineering, foundation design, teaching, research and consulting in Canada and overseas.
His current duties review and finalize the design of water systems, pump stations, water supply, sanitary and storm sewer systems. He is teaching water resources courses for last 15 years. He designed and delivered more than 50 courses on water resources, and they are very well received by practicing engineers in Canada and globally.
Dr. Abdelaziz is a former adjunct professor at University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada, visiting professor at Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada and part time professor at Seneca College, Toronto, Canada.
Dr. Abdelaziz is specialized in numerical modeling for solving sophisticated geotechnical engineering problems with respect to pile foundation and the linear and nonlinear analysis of soil-structure interaction. He designed charts to predict pressures acting on tunnels, and developed analytical model for pile bearing capacity prediction.
Dr. Abdelaziz authored a number of technical papers and delivered numerous internal and external workshops on various geotechnical and Municipal engineering topics. Dr. Abdelaziz has been involved in a number of projects in Canada and overseas, such as tunneling, silos, buildings, retaining structures, siphons, irrigation networks and many other civil engineering projects in terms of design and construction.
Dr. Abdelaziz is a member in different professional societies such as APEGGA, PEO, CGS, CDA, TAC and ABPA. He is also a reviewer for the Canadian Geotechnical Journal.
