CS2002 - Catchment, Stream and Lake Engineering
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
This subject introduces the land components of the hydrological cycle. Topics covered
include: Hydrology design rainfall; peak discharges; design flood hydrographs; estimation
of floods; urban stormwater management; groundwater hydrology. River mechanics continuity
equation; plug flow; solute transport; secondary flow; scour. Reservoir processes
stratification; mixing; inflows and outflows; seasonal cycles; destratification methods.
The contaminant transport process, surface water hydrology, and groundwater hydrology
will be emphasized in this subject.
- develop an understanding of the processes determining surface and subsurface hydrology,
river flows and reservoir and lake dynamics;
- develop methods of finding engineering solutions to problems associated with standing
and flowing surface water and subsurface flows;
- develop the ability to work both individually and as part of a team in the analysis
and solution of engineering problems pertaining to surface and subsurface flows.
- end of semester exam (50% - 70%)
- on-course assessment, some of which may be invigilated (30% - 50%).
