Training content

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Design criteria for sanitary sewers
  • Establishing the design year and predicting the population projection for the design year
  • Establishing the per capita sewage flow for the design year
  • Calculating sewage flow velocities for different depths of flow and the need for maintaining self-cleansing velocity
  • Selecting the appropriate material for sewer conduit
  • Analyzing the super-imposed load on the sewer conduit for different trench conditions and designing the sewer to withstand the load
  • The need for different appurtenances and special structures in a sewer system
