HIGHWAYS IN THE RIVER ENVIRONMENT-HYDRAULIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS. BASIC COURSE INSTRUCTOR'S LESSON PLANS

Through a coordinated effort between the Federal Highway Administration and Colorado State University a training course was developed to provide training in the practical application of the concepts of open channel flow, fluvial geomorphology, and river mechanics to the planning, location, design, construction, maintenance and operation of highways; and to enable the participants to apply these concepts to environmental problems associated with highway crossings and encroachments. This two-week course was oriented to graduate engineers who have had training in basic hydraulics. The subject publication, Basic Course Instructor's Lesson Plans, contains outlines for each of the thirty-four lessons for this course. A second publication was also developed for this course on Highways in the River Environment. It is subtitled Training and Design Manual and is intended to serve as a text for the course. /Author/
