Specific course information

This course presents the basic principles of fluid dynamics and its application to the analysis of flow in open channels with emphasis on the efficient use of solution techniques, procedures and numerical methods available for computational analysis. Based on theoretical concepts and laboratory practice, students will be able to understand the hydraulics of channels, particularly the phenomena of unsteady flow, gradually varied flow and rapidly varied flow, thus gaining the bases for the design of systems to free flow

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To identify the types of open-channel flow.
  • To identify the types of channels and their properties.
  • To identify the concept of energy and momentum.
  • To calculate critical flow.
  • To identify the concept of uniform flow.
  • To identify rapidly varied flow concepts.
  • To identify gradually varied flow.
  • To design uniform flow channels
