In this 3-hour intensive training course our experts will guide attendees through the computation of pipe flow.

Attendees will increase their knowledge of modelling techniques for closed conduits and the sensitivity of predicted results to the selected parameters. Throughout the course attendees will be shown practical working examples, learning hands-on how to compute pipe flow for culverts and storm drain networks, leading to an increased understanding of the underlying principles governing flow in closed conduits.

This course is part of our H&H Essentials series, comprised of 8 individual intensive 3-hour courses with each course flowing into the next enabling attendees to build their skills piece by piece through every course. Each course in the series will focus on a key principle of hydrology and hydraulics. Click here to register for the ENTIRE series.


These courses are designed to cater for engineers and non-engineers alike, with a range of provided background materials that make the course suitable for both beginners and experienced professionals seeking a refresher for the underlying concepts behind hydrologic and hydraulic modelling applications.



Each course consists of 3-hours of recordings with pre and post-course materials delivered through sequential units via our customised learning platform. The courses include electronic copies of background material and workshop instructions, with pre-readings/videos and manuals available for ongoing learning.

Take sessions anytime, at your own pace, with unlimited course access for 4 months.

What’s included within each of the 8 courses in the series:

  • 3-hours of session recordings to view as many times as required;
  • Ability to ask questions to the presenters at any time through the learning platform;
  • PDF manual of the course available for ongoing use;
  • Workshop material for hands-on exercises downloaded from the learning platform before starting the session recordings;
  • Pre-reading and viewing materials.



Pre-course reading and video watching is encouraged.



A good internet connection and software and downloads as described in the learning platform. To provide the best desired learning outcomes, set up in a quiet space with dual monitors (i.e., one screen with the on-demand recording and the other with the software/exercise that attendees can work on simultaneously).


On completion of the course attendees will be issued with a Certificate of Participation. Attendees earn CPD hours/points with professional organisations for at least 5 hours per course (therefore 40+ hours for the series).
