In Hydraulic Engineering, you'll learn ...
- Geometric, dynamic and kinematic similarity
- Open channel and closed conduit flow characteristics
- Application of the Darcy-Weisbach equation, Moody curve and the Hazen-Williams equation
- Rapidly varied flow (hydraulic jump) and gradually varied flow (GVF)
Hydraulic engineering is the application of fluid mechanics principles to problems dealing with the collection, storage, control, transport, regulation, measurement, and use of water.
This course provides step-by-step procedures to help you understand and solve hydraulic problems. The course covers dimensional analysis and hydraulic models, application of continuity and momentum principles to pipe and open channel flow and steady, open-channel flow under uniform, rapidly and gradually varied conditions.
Numerous sample problems are presented and solved to aid in your understanding of the material.
Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained
This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Application of the continuity and energy equations
- Dimensional analysis and how to simplify complex physical problems
