Objective of the course – aims of the course unit:|
The primary purpose of this course is to review the current of art in urban drainage, with emphasis on drainage impacts on the receiving waters, means of impact mitigation and implementation of the national standards and management programs. The subject brings groudings about Planning, Design, Operation, Rehabilitation of Sewer systems and information about hydroinformatics tools.
Objective of the course – learning outcomes and competences:|
Student will manage aim of course: planning, proposal, operating and rehabilitation of sewer networks including hydroinformatics.
Course contents (annotation):|
The course links with the fundamental subjects such as sewerage, hydraulics, hydrology, etc. It focuses on hydroinformatics tools, the technology incorporating numerical computing models, tools for data archiving, visualisation and analysis applied in master planning and global studies. The adoption of information technology within the water management is therefore growing rapidly and driven more by available technology than by user-needs. Students obtain important information about it during individual practical classes. The course also includes significant issues in environmental protection: modelling of urban drainage; modelling of stormwater runoff, quantity and quality.
