HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING 1
Credit points: 15
Students are provided with an understanding of the elements and behaviour of hydraulic systems to enable them to design both elements of, and in some cases, complete hydraulic systems. Topics covered include the relationship between climate, landscape, catchment, effective runoff, flow estimation and hydraulic structures; the hydrological cycle; data acquisition and stream gauging; estimation of run-off from a catchment; flood routing through reservoirs and channels; computer modelling of urban drainage and sewerage; flood mitigation; design of culverts and retarding basins; hydraulic jumps and channel transitions.
