15 Week Session

  • Course Description (Current Catalog): This course introduces a basic of hydraulics and hydrology (or to organize existing knowledge) for the practicing engineer. It provides the ability to solve engineering problems of fluid flow in pipes and open channels by application of basic hydraulic principles and engineering tools in the process of engineering of analysis and design. Also, it provides the basic understanding of flow control and flow measurements in channels, and it develops the ability to determine energy loses and flow capacity of basic hydraulic structures. It provides a basic knowledge of atmospheric and surface processes (precipitation, evapotranspiration, soil moisture, infiltration, surface runoff). It offers practical experience on hydrological data acquisition, analysis, and interpretation on temporal and special scales of hydrological processes and on using simple catchment rainfall run-off models.
