Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

This paper is taught using a combination of lectures, tutorials and practical exercises. This paper includes four main parts.

The first part focuses on Pipe Hydraulics this section starts with principals of flow in single pipelines and expend to pipe network, pumps and design of water distribution systems.

The second part concentrates on Open Channel Hydraulics, after studying principals of flow in open channels, this section follows by designing of hydraulic structures like culverts and spillways.

The third part of the paper deals with Groundwater Hydraulics and gives useful information about groundwater investigations and groundwater numerical modelling.

The last part of the paper concentrates on Hydrology Engineering and provide required information for hydrologic study including infiltration process, surface water/groundwater interaction methods, runoff models and routing models.

this paper introduces papular water Engineering computer designing models.

Edit Assessments Content

Assessed work involves completing three laboratory and one field experiment reports. Each report is expected to include following materials: original data, graphs and analysis, and an interpretation of the results presented. A report template and marking criteria will be provided to show what does it mean a “good report”.
