Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The course covers a study of the mechanisms by which momentum, heat, and mass are transported in fluid systems of interest to water resources engineers.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE

This unit will enable students understand the mechanisms by which momentum, heat, and mass are transported in fluid systems of interest to water resources engineers

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course, the student should be able to:

·        Understand  the  principles  of  conservation  to  develop  conceptual  and  mathematical  models  for analysis of transport in water resource systems.

·        Acquire knowledge  of  the  fundamental  processes  which  govern  the transport  of  conserved  quantities.

·        Gain knowledge of the  processes  that control  the  quality  and  quantity  of water  in  natural  and  engineered  environments

·        Get exposed to numerical analysis in flood dynamics

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

A student on completing this course is expected to:

·        Apply knowledge in the  processes  that control  the  quality  and  quantity  of water  in  natural  and  engineered  environments.   

·        Demonstrate a  solid  theoretical  foundation  in  transport  phenomena

·        Describe the quantity and quality of  water  in  specific  settings  (fate  and  transport  of  contaminants,  surface  water  quality,  subsurface flow and transport, and river hydraulics).

·        Apply numerical analysis in flood dynamics
