(OP)
i do some ditch/drainage design for small sites from time to time.
i want to learn more about storm/flood engineering for large areas.
any recommended book or online course about this.

(OP)
i'm interested in beginner book not advanced book/courses.

RE: any good book or online course to teach storm/flood engineering

I would suggest googling Rooney Malcolm. He was a professor at NC State and has some of the best storm water design manuals.

This is a good reference manual that I have on my shelf. I let my younger engineers borrow it all the time.
Of course the Hydraulics Bible, Open-Channel Hydraulics; Ven Te Chow 1959; Hydrology & Floodplain Analysis Bedient-Huber; Handbook of Hydrology just to name a few.

RE: any good book or online course to teach storm/flood engineering

If you are interested in storm design then you also need to look at the requirements for you jurisdiction (state, county, city)after you get an understanding of the basics. Typically these standards will have design examples you can follow along to get a better understanding of the steps involved. Also definitely check out the TR-55 manual linked above, it is very basic and many regulatory agencies use it.

Hydrology and Floodplain Analysis by Philip B. Bedient, Wayne C. Huber, Baxter E. Vieux

White Paper - Strategies to Secure Connected Cars with Firewalls
White-hat hackers have demonstrated gaining remote access to dashboard functions and transmissions of connected vehicles. That makes a firewall a vital component of a multilayered approach to vehicle security as well as overall vehicle safety and reliability. Learn strategies to secure with firewalls. Download Now
White Paper - Model Based Engineering for Wire Harness Manufacturing
As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.
