OVERVIEW

The course is offered, optionally, in the 3rd year / second semester of the Bachelor's Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

It has as a pre-requisite to have acquired the basic content of the course of Hydraulics 1 and 2 subject to the 2nd year of the CL3 path

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides the basic knowledge to design hydraulic structures such as intake, conveyance and control structures including open-channel and pressure flow system. The course deals with the technical-engineering aspects together with the water management issue.

Exam description

Oral

Assessment methods

Applied problems on the main topics of the course are foreseen. The students will draw up a report on an applied problem that will be discussed during the oral examination. The final oral examination consists in questions related to the topics presented during the course and mainly on the topics not included in four midterm exams; the final score will be weighted with the midterm ones.
