Overview (Updated 2015-08-11)
The ARR team, in conjunction with the 9th International WSUD Conference, are running an workshop to discuss the latest developments in the ARR revision, specifically in the WSUD and urban drainage space. Topics covered will include an overview of the new short duration IFDs and synthetic rainfall for continuous simulation as well as the design of retarding basins. Dr Peter Coombes will also be presenting on current directions in urban drainage.
When ARR is released there will be significant changes to the recommendations and guidelines across the hydrologic sector, with major flow on consequences to engineering and ecologic practice. This workshop is intended to introduce these changes to practitioners working in the fields of WSUD, short duration design and analysis as well as continuous simulation for process modelling. It is also a significant opportunity for industry practitioners to provide feedback to ARR authors and the editorial team into the direction and final outputs of ARR, which is scheduled for launch later this year.
The full day programme will run on Monday 19th October 2015.
