HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING 2

CIV4HE2

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Hydraulic Engineering 2 addresses three of the classical topics of civil engineering practice: water supply, waste water systems and irrigation practice. The traditional teaching of these topics has been modified to include the implications and impact of climate change. Students have the opportunity to engage with practicing civil engineers chosen to relate to the above topics. The unit content includes the implications of climate change on existing irrigation systems together with the integrated commercial operations of irrigation systems, the design of water supply head-works, pipelines, channel and reticulated water systems, manual and computer analysis of pipe network systems, the design of pump stations, water supply and waste water treatment facilities, the disposal of effluent and solid waste products and the predictions of water and waste water demands. Engineers Australia state 1 competencies covered in this subject are: 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 2.2, 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Understand and describe significant concepts applicable to the behaviour, design and construction of water and waste water supply systems, and treatment facilities, Includes EA stage 1 competencies: 1.1 Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline. 1.2 Conceptual understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the engineering discipline.

Activities:
The first two weeks of the semester is dedicated to learn about significant concepts in applicable to the behaviour, design and construction of water and waste water supply systems, and treatment facilities. The material is covered in online and face to face lectures and workshops/tutorials, and is assessed in weekly quizzes, written assignments and in the final exam.

02. Determine the quantity and quality of water required for residential and industrial water supply, the quantity and quality of wastewater generated by different types of users and the environmental impact of the use of effluent from treatment plants. Includes EA stage 1 competencies: 2.1 Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving. 2.2 Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources. 3.1 Ethical conduct and professional accountability.

Activities:
The other two weeks of the semester are dedicated to familiarise students with the techniques to estimate the quantity and quality of water required for various purposes. The material is covered in lectures and workshops, and is assessed in weekly quizzes, weekly assessments and in the final exam.

03. Apply fundamental engineering concepts to develop specialist models of supply and distribution of water and wastewater transportation, together with appropriate treatment and disposal facilities. Includes EA stage 1 competencies: 1.1 Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline. 2.1 Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving. 2.2 Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.

Activities:
In the second quarter of the semester, students are expected to use fundamental concepts for developing models for water supply and waste water management. The material is covered in online briefing videos, lectures and workshops, and is assessed in weekly quizzes, weekly assignments and in the final exam.

04. Demonstrate a professional awareness of the environmental impact of the use and disposal of effluent from treatment plants. Includes EA stage 1 competencies: 2.1 Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving. 2.2 Ethical conduct and professional accountability. 3.3 Creative, innovative and pro-active demeanour

Activities:
Students are expected to learn and understand the environmental impact of the use and disposal of effluent from treatment plants. The material is covered in online lectures and workshops, and is assessed in weekly quizzes, weekly assignments, and in the final exam.

05. Calculate the size of pipes required to satisfactorily transport present and future quantities of water for residential use, for wastewater disposal and for irrigation purposes Includes EA stage 1 competencies: 2.1 Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving. 3.1 Ethical conduct and professional accountability. 3.3 Creative, innovative and pro-active demeanour.

Activities:
Students are expected to learn to calculate the pipes size required to satisfactorily transport present and future quantities of water for various uses. The material is covered in online briefing videos, lectures and workshops, and is assessed in weekly quizzes, monthly tests, and laboratory report and in the final exam.
