CS2002 - Catchment, Stream and Lake Engineering
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Engineering (pre 2015)
This subject introduces the land components of the hydrological cycle. Topics covered
include:Hydrology design rainfall; peak discharges; design flood hydrographs; estimation
of extreme floods; urban stormwater management; groundwater hydrology.River mechanics
continuity equation; plug flow; solute transport; secondary flow; scour.Reservoir
processes stratification; mixing; meteorological forcing; inflows and outflows; seasonal
cycles; destratification methods.
- 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.
