Course Objective

The aim of the course is to teach the basic concepts of flows in pipes and open channels; to apply continuity, momentum and energy principles for the solution of various pipeline and open channel problems.

Course Content

Laminar and turbulent flows. Friction factor in pipe flow. Computation of flow in single pipes: Hydraulic machinery: turbines and pumps. Pipeline systems and networks. General characteristics and classification of open channel flow: pressure and velocity distribution. Continuity equation. Energy concept. Momentum principle. Uniform flow. Rapidly varied flow gradually-varied flow. Design of nonerodible and erodible channels.

Learning Outcomes

To increase the ability to use the basic fluid mechanics principles to solve pipe and channel flow problems. Apply knowledge of mathematics and fluid mechanics to design and conduct experiments, to analyze and interpret data. To analyze and design pipeline systems, open channel systems.
