Course Description

This combined course (415/453) will cover the geometric design of roadway and associated drainage. The topics to be covered in the combined course are vehicle-driver characteristics, safety and sight distances, horizontal and vertical alignment, interchanges, earthwork and mass-haul, hydrologic computations, design of various hydraulic structures, flood-plain computations, scour and erosion control design, and storm-water best management practices. A major component of the class is a semester long, team-oriented design project of a roadway including drainage calculations and hydraulic structures. (Credit is not given for both CEE 415 and CEE 453.)
