Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course covers advanced methods and tools used in design, operation and maintenance of water transport and distribution systems.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION

To prepare students on planning, hydraulic- and engineering design, construction, operation and maintenance of water transport and distribution systems.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

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.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

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.
