Are your containment systems effective? Join Jerald S. Fifield, Ph.D., PH, CISEC, CPESC and Tina R. Wills, PE, CISEC for the second installment of our advanced Sediment and Erosion Control Master Class Series and the first part of our Effective Sediment Containment Systems Series,Designing Effective Sediment Containment Systems for Construction Sites, exploring a scientific and engineering assessment of parameters necessary to capture design size particles while flood flows are discharging from a containment system.
The role of any sediment containment system (SCS) is to allow for the settlement of soil particles that are suspended in runoff waters. While sediment containment systems (SCS) are the only effective method for removing sediment from runoff waters, in order to be effective in protecting the environment, SCSs (e.g., sediment basins or traps) must be able to capture design size particles during flood flow conditions.
Working through Fifield’s best-selling Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), this second module of our Sediment and Erosion Control Master Class Series presents a scientific and engineering assessment of parameters necessary to capture design size particles while flood flows are discharging from a containment system. In this module, Fifield and Wills demonstrate that effectiveness is dependent more upon internal flow velocities and flow distances, rather than length-width ratios. Additionally, Fifield and Wills present an assessment of “Flow-Through Systems” to capture polymer treated sediments demonstrating how a small SCS can have a high rate of effectiveness during flood flow events when used in conjunction with polymers.
Webcast attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
- Understanding of the types of SCSs and effective outlet structures
- Understanding of why designers and reviewers must develop SCS for design flood flow events
- Application of scientific and engineering methods on developing structural parameters
- Understanding of how us of polymers can increase the effectiveness of an SCS
Sediment and Erosion Control Master Class Webcast Series
This Designing Effective Sediment Containment Systems for Construction Sites webcast is the second module in our Sediment and Erosion Control Master Webcast Class Series. Currently, we are offering the full Master Class Webcast Series and manual at a discounted rate. If you are interested in purchasing the full Master Class Webcast Series, you can find information and the registration link here.
This webcast is based upon and works through the associated chapters in Jerald S. Fifield’s Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.), and is presented as an intermediate to advanced exploration of erosion, sediment, and sedimentation. As such, we recommend purchasing the manual Designing and Reviewing Effective Sediment and Erosion Control Plans (3rded.) with the webcast.
* Webcast presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Webcast may exceed scheduled time.
* Please note manual shipping requires 5-7 business days.
