Sediment Impact Assessment on Streams

COURSE NO: C02-088
Sediment Impact Assessment on Streams
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents a comprehensive overview of sediment impact assessments for channel design and restoration projects. The course will highlight the importance of sediment impact assessments in determining the potential for sediment deposition or scouring on the channel bed, which can impact the success of the project.


Additionally, the course covers the types of sediment impact assessments that can be used, ranging from visual techniques for simple projects to numerical models for complex projects, as well as the importance of a bed stability assessment to determine the anticipated channel bed response and the potential for aggradation or degradation.


Overall, this course provides a detailed guide for conducting sediment impact assessments, which are critical for successful channel design and restoration projects.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, chemical, mechanical, environmental and electrical engineers, as well as anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of Sediment Impact Assessment on Streams.
