Course description

In this class, students rely on their existing knowledge (Hydromechanics I) and develop a deeper understanding of hydraulic phenomena. It covers topics such as turbulence, laminar and turbulent pipe flows, channel and groundwater flow and aims to encourage students to further develop their ability to transfer theoretical subject matter into hydraulic engineering practice. Students are expected to be able to break down theoretical problems clearly and resolve them on their own.

Course content

  • Turbulence
  • laminar and turbulent flow
  • lossy pipe flow, open channel flow
  • law of resistance for stationary open channel flow
  • groundwater flow
  • pump and turbine performance
  • overflow of weirs
  • different types of weirs, including Thomson measuring weir

Learning objectives

In this course, students rely on their existing knowledge (Hydromechanics I) and develop a deeper understanding of hydraulic phenomena. The course helps to transfer theoretical knowledge to hydraulic engineering practice. At the end of the course students are able to break down theoretical problems clearly and resolve them on their own.
