This unit provides students with an overview of urban storm water management and road drainage design. Both quantity and quality aspects will be covered. The Unit comprises theoretical coverage of the rainfall-runoff and water quality transformation concepts in the context of an urban environment and modelling applications. Students will be taught the mathematical formulations for overland and channel flow, hydrological concepts to derive runoff and the application of these concepts in modelling. Empirical formulations for modelling water quality transformation process will be introduced and adopted for the modelling of water quality in urban runoff with emphasis on conservative transport. Students will be required to demonstrate their understanding through tests and project works
