CE429 WATER SUPPLY ENGINEERING DESIGN .
The objectives of this course are to enable the students to understand the basic problems of Water Supply and Distribution with special emphasis on how to design a Water Distribution Network. Students are expected to make a design project after having collected the necessary data using the recordings of the SCADA system of the associated water utility including street plan related to the extension work of that system. Students are offered an extensive hydraulic review at the beginning of the semester concerning their project. Each student submits a term project.
Pump, valves, friction loss formulae. Water transmission by pipelines. Hydraulics and operation of pumped discharge lines and gravity pipelines. Design of pipelines. Hydraulics, operation and design of water distribution systems. Municipal water requirements, extension of population. Hardy-Cross method. Newton-Raphson method.
At the end of the course, the learner is expected to be able to master basic hydraulic concepts related to the design and analysis of water transmission lines and to be able to make decisions for designing a water distribution network.
