The course set above should be completed before taking CE419 COMPUTER APPLICATION IN HYDRAULICS .

Course Objective

The objective of the course is to enhance students' appreciation of the significance of computers in solving engineering problems encountered in hydraulics. Furthermore, it is intended that the students will get both “in depth” understanding of the selected topics and “hands on” experience on the related computer software.

Course Content

Presentation of software and computer tools relevant to hydraulic engineering problems including design of orifices and weirs, water level computations, drainage inlet design, culvert hydraulics, pressure piping systems and water quality analysis, storm sewer design and gravity piping systems and sanitary sewer design.

Learning Outcomes

The students will have a good understanding of the role played by computers and the software used on computers in solving steady and transient flows in closed conduit flows, network analysis, gradually varied flow in open channels, design of storm sewer systems, culvert hydraulics, etc. That, in turn, will improve their self confidence in tackling any new hydraulic problems they may encounter in their professional careers.
