Hydraulics and Hydraulic Structures

The fundamental equations of fluid mechanics are used to derive the principles used in hydraulic engineering. Special emphasis is given to uniform and stead
y flows in pipes and open channels. The hydrologic processes of evaporation, precipitation, runoff generation, and flow propagation are also described in deterministic, statistical, and stochastic terms. Finally, the course illustrates how hydraulic and hydrologic principles are applied to state and solve problems connected to the use of water resources and the defense from floods. Hydraulic structures considered in the course include water distribution systems, drainage systems, river engineering works, and dams.

Water Resources Engineering

The aim of this course is to involve students in applying a set of professional skills and tools to challenging water resources engineering problems and situations. Hydrologic processes are presented and modeling tools for flood defence and water resources management are critically developed.
