Intended learning outcomes
  1. To recognise and characterise a) different types of open channel flows; b) flow through orifices and weirs; c) ground water flows.
  2. Open-channel hydraulics calculations (steady uniform and non-uniform flows) in open and closed sections.
    • Designing channel sections – uniform flow depth and critical depth in geometrically simple sections, geometrically composite sections and sections with variable roughness;
    • Hydraulic profile calculations of steady non uniform flow with constant discharge;
    • Hydraulic jump calculations (upstream and downstream flow depths, energy loss and length of the roller).
  3. Discharge through orifices calculations.
  4. To recognise the various fluid measurement methods
  5. Calculation of the groundwater flow-level drawdown relations.
  6. Describe the different hydraulic machines (pumps and turbines) and characterize their working conditions
    • Determination of the operating point of a) a pump; b) parallel-series pump association.
    • NPSH determination
