C E 462 Open Channel Hydraulics (3)
This is an advanced senior level course dealing with steady gradually varied flow. The laws of conservation of mass, energy and momentum are applied to gradually varied steady flow problems in rectangular and non-rectangular channels. Basic definitions and equations governing flow are developed for uniform and nonuniform flow conditions. The students will use their knowledge of fluid mechanics, calculus, numerical analysis and computer science to solve practical open channel flow problems.
