Hydrology of Sewer Systems

FAST-BP054Acad. year: 2017/2018

The subject matter of the hydrology of sewer systems is to find a solution to the issues related to the subject of drainage and treatment of wastewater and related subjects of progressive computational methods in drainage, municipal drainage and, abovc all, the basic field subjects, hydraulics taught in several courses, generál hydrology and other subjects relaled to generál hydrology. This subject covers mainly those areas that define othcr parameters than those covered by the general hydraulics.
