Requisite(s): 48641 Fluid Mechanics
Fields of practice: Civil Engineering program
The objective of this subject is to give students a background in the prediction of the quantity of water (hydrology) and its movement (hydraulics) leading to an understanding of the scientific foundations and basic principles of these fields, and the ability to apply hydraulic and hydrologic methods to problems in an integrated way. This subject extends the knowledge gained in fluid mechanics, introduces students to hydrology, and introduces skills necessary for design and management in water engineering. Students are exposed to the concepts that form the basis for a wide range of problems in open channel hydraulics, surface water hydrology, and design flood estimation.
