Water Transport And Distribution
This course covers advanced methods and
tools used in design, operation and maintenance of water transport and
To prepare students on planning, hydraulic- and
engineering design, construction, operation and maintenance of water transport
and distribution systems.
By the end of this course, the student
should be able to:
Use the GIS and remote sensing
technologies, and familiarize with the GIS-based techniques for sustainable
planning and management of WTD systems;
Apply the theory of transient flows, and
plan the measures to prevent/control water hammer;
Select modern tools for monitoring of
operation, and planning of maintenance of WTD systems.
A student completing the course is expected to:
Distinguish between various sources of
water quality problems in distribution networks; outline the basic corrosion
mechanisms and suggest the list of preventive and reactive measures;
Discuss on the theory of advanced
hydraulic and water quality modelling; apply state-of-the-art network software
for assessment of irregular operational scenarios and develop a
reliability-based and cost effective design using computer model.
