Designed for engineers working in flood-prone areas, this course covers accessing FEMA flood maps, calculating hydrostatic and hydrodynamic forces, and exploring flood control projects, ultimately enabling students to grasp various flooding types, floodplains, and related phenomena.
Tailored for engineers operating in flood-prone regions, this course equips participants with valuable insights into available resources pertinent to their field, including guidance on accessing FEMA flood maps. Moreover, it demonstrates the methodology for computing hydrostatic, hydrodynamic, and related forces intrinsic to flooding, while also featuring a visual presentation of select flood control projects.
The overarching goal of this course is to provide engineers with a well-rounded understanding of a variety of flooding types and floodplains, facilitating their grasp of these kinds of phenomena.
