Gravity sewer design is an area of civil engineering that is often taken for granted.
The result can be a 50-year storm or sanitary system that could allow years of inflow and infiltration, deposits and blockages, invert erosion, structural failure and systems that are hydraulically over-loaded, causing flooding and backups.
This course starts with the basics and addresses planning, expected flows, hydraulics, structural pipe design and appurtenances.
Tables and Charts and sample problems are provided, so that that student has a practical guide to the successful design of a gravity system.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
