Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Microcomputer Applications Within the Urban Transportation Environment


Microcomputers offer an inexpensive method for increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of drainage design personnel. This paper discusses some of the benefits and uses of microcomputers in urban drainage design and discusses programs being developed for hydrologic analysis, culvert design, roadway inlet analysis, and stable channel design. It also provides a description of a 3-day workshop being developed by the Federal Highway Administration for presentation to state highway drainage engineers.
