Stormwater modelling using MUSIC: Fundamentals
Participants will apply the MUSIC software and understand the theory and assumptions behind the model. Also learn how to simulate and evaluate the performance of stormwater treatment measures, either singly or in a treatment train.
Building on day one's learnings, participants gain a greater understanding of the theory behind MUSIC and its application to successfully model stormwater treatment. Practice using MUSIC with series of stormwater treatment scenarios and develop a model for a real urban development.
The topics are tailored to the learning requirements of attendees, and typically include highly interactive discussions.
Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) is discussed throughout the workshop. Real WSUD example projects are described and discussed, as well as recommended procedures for the planning and design of the most appropriate WSUD strategies for site conditions and constraints.
- Training materials containing: user manual (online and downloadable), presentation notes and worked examples
- Meals (morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea)
- Use of MUSIC software for the duration of the course (USB dongle), please bring your laptop – view system requirements.
Who should attend
MUSIC training is aimed at professionals (engineering and environmental) in local government, consultancies and waterway and catchment management agencies.
This workshop is appropriate for those who have had limited experience with MUSIC software.
