|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Engineering (pre 2015)
Hydraulics pipe flow, multiple pipe networks, Hardy-Cross solution, open channel flow,
hydraulic jumps, transitions, backwater curves, gutter and inlet design, culvert design.
Case studies from local channels, culverts and gutters.Coastal Engineering wave generation,
transformation and dissipation; tropical cyclone waves and water levels; storm surge
and coastal flooding; beach erosion and sediment transport.
- develop the ability to work both individually and as part of a team in the analysis
and design aspects of hydraulic and coastal engineering problems with special emphasis
on tropical conditions;
- develop the usual simplifications and assumptions used for analysis of hydraulics
and coastal engineering design;
- introduce the basic concepts of surface waves and coastal engineering;
- review basic concepts of hydraulics.
