Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Knowledge of fluid mechanics is essential for good practice of civil and environmental engineering. This module provides background material on open channel hydraulics and engineering hydrology that serve as a sound base for other relevant civil and environmental modules and for future professional practice.

Principal learning outcomes

To enable students to understand the principles of free surface flows and engineering hydrology applied to civil engineering problems. Students who have successfully completed this module will be able to: explain the principles controlling open channel flows; summarise the differences between flow types; analyse free surface flow problems using friction, energy and momentum considerations; predict rainfall and runoff characteristics for UK catchments.

Timetabled teaching activities

Autumn. This module includes 30 hours of lectures, 3 hours of examples classes, 10 hours of seminars and 1.5 hour of laboratory session.Required self-study: 105 hours
