HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING 2

CIV4HE2

2020

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.
