Course Objectives To develop an understanding of the hydraulics of open channel flow by using Conservation of Momentum, Energy and Mass principles and make necessary design of open channels and learn basic principles for sediment transport in open channels
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Students can determine hydrodynamic effects of the fluid flow in hydraulic systems by using Conservation of Momentum, Energy and Mass principles.
  • Students can determine flow conditions and hydrodynamic effects in open channel by using Conservation of Momentum, Energy and Mass principles.
  • Due to transitions in open channel, Students can determine depth of flow, flow velocities, discharges and head losses in open channel.
  • Students can determine hydraulic parameters for open channel design in uniform and nonuniform flow condition in open channel.
Course Content Uniform flow, gradually varied flow, rapidly varied flow, and sediment transport in open channels.
