The course covers the hydraulics of pipes under pressure, (water mains and networks), and open channel flow (sewers, drains, and channel sections). It provides a review of hydrostatics, the fundamental concepts of Energy, Momentum and Continuity and a practical understanding of energy and energy losses that drive the flow of water. It involves computational work on a hydraulic profile through wastewater treatment works.
The purpose of this course is to get exposure about the application of hydraulic engineering in the field by means of studying the various devices, equipment, machinery, and structures
By the end of this course, the student should be able to:
· Solve a range of hydraulic problems, from sizing pipes, selecting pumps, measuring flow in the field, and calculating open channel hydraulic profiles
· Think intuitively (through laboratory experience) about hydraulic phenomena
· Acquire knowledge of Kinematics of fluid flow
· Further the knowledge of energy, momentum and continuity of flow
A student on completing this course is expected to:
· Analyse of the flow and pressure distribution of flowing water and wastewater critical to many fundamental engineering tasks and how to think practically about the flow of water in engineered systems.
· Test the theory against observations of real hydraulic systems to choose adequate supplying schemes, suggest a network layout, main components and pipe materials;
· Distinguish between various operational modes of water distribution systems.
