HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING 2

CIV4HE2

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Hydraulic Engineering 2 addresses three of the classical topics of civil engineering practice: water supply, wastewater systems and irrigation practice. The unit content includes understanding and design of water supply, wastewater collection and treatment facilities, manual and computer analysis of pipe networks, disposal of effluent and solid waste products, predictions of water and wastewater demands, and irrigation techniques and applications. Also, climate change effects on hydraulic engineering practice are discussed in the subject.

Learning ActivitiesTheory and worked examples are provided in the lectures. The knowledge is then practised in the workshops and applied in assignments, quizzes and final exam.A well-established pipeline design software is introduced and students practise the software by designing a water supply system in an assignment.Students learn how to develop a simple sewer hydraulics tool that can be employed for wastewater pipeline design.A virtual site visit to wastewater treatment plant is introduced to increase the understanding of the related theory given in the lectures.
