Objective of the course – aims of the course unit:|
The aim of the course is to acquaint students with principles of hydraulics of open channels. The students will obtain knowledge about nonuniform steady flow and unsteady flow, about transport and dispersion of conservative component in rivers and about transport of sediment.
Objective of the course – learning outcomes and competences:|
Students complete goal of this course which include getting up principles of flow in the open channels. Also students get experience in flow in the open channels through term projects.
Mathematics, Physics, Hydraulics, Hydrology
Course contents (annotation):|
Solution of the open channel hydraulics problems (uniform and nonuniform steady flow, unsteady flow, stability of the bottom and banks of the channel, pollution propagation), solution using nowadays software of open channel flow and advection-dispersion (HEC-RAS, MIKE11).
Software application, demonstration of case studies.
Hydraulic solution of the structures appearing on channels (bed drops, weirs, bridges, culverts).
