Course detail

Hydrology of Sewer Systems

FAST-BP054Acad. year: 2018/2019

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.

Department

Institute of Municipal Water Management (VHO)

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The subject introduce students with special hydrology and hydraulics, which is assert in sewer systems.
Student obtains the following professional knowledge and skills: design and project of special hydrology and hydraulics, which is assert in sewer systems, assessment of the capacity of a combined sewer system, dimensioning of the sewer system with simulation model SWMM and MIKE URBAN, design of retention tank and sewer overflow, measurement of flow in sewerage network, management of rain water.
