Civil Engineering Hydraulics

Course Description

Application of the basic laws of fluid mechanics to hydraulic problems. Analysis of simple and multiple steady pipe flows: branching pipes, pipes in series and parallel, and pipe network; flow measurement in pipe. Unsteady flow in pressure conduits: establishment of steady flow and water hammer. Analysis of pumps and turbines. Pump and system characteristics. Steady open channel flow: energy and momentum principles; critical and uniform flow development and their computation; best hydraulic section; gradually varied flow and its profile computation; flow measurement in open channel. Introduction to Hydrology.
