Pre-requisite: ENV1101 or ENV2103 or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GCEN or METC or MEPR or GCNS or GDNS or MENS
Recommended prior study or concurrent study: ENG3103 or ENG3104.
The emphasis of this course is the application of hydraulic theory to the solution of problems commonly encountered in engineering hydraulics and to the design of hydraulic systems and structures. The basic concepts of the conservation of mass, momentum and energy (introduced in Hydraulics I) are reviewed, extended and applied to a variety of hydraulic systems. New material on unsteady pipeline and open channel flows, loose boundary hydraulics and coastal hydraulics is presented and applied. Students are practised in the design and analysis of open channel, pipeline and pumping systems and a wide range of hydraulic structures.
