This course is for Civil Engineers, Sanitary Engineers or any Engineers who might deal with open-channel flow. No prior knowledge of open channel flow is needed; however basic algebra and trigonometry will be used in the course. The course introduces you to hydraulic elements of open-channels. An introduction to types of flow and fundamental equations used for open-channels is also covered. You will learn how to find the critical depth, normal depth, sequent depth, Froude number and Reynolds number for open channel flow. Finally, you will learn how to compute a water surface profile for gradually varied flow and how to use weirs to measure discharge or flow.
