1 x 2 hour lecture per week, 1 x 1 hour lecture per week, 1 x 1 hour tutorial per week, 2 x 2 hour laboratory session per trimester. Compulsory on campus attendance requirement for all students either at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester or on a single scheduled day during Week 9. Typically on-campus (G) enrolled students will attend the compulsory activities for this unit at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester and off-campus (X) enrolled students will attend the compulsory activities for this unit on a single scheduled day during Week 9.
This unit will describe hydrological processes that are involved in earth’s natural water cycle and the influence of those processes on catchments and engineering structures. It also will describe the hydraulic behaviours observed in open channel flows. Further, the unit will help to identify, define and use hydrological processes in practical situations such as catchment water balance, flood routing as well as hydraulic properties of flow in open channels when designing canals, sluice gates, energy dissipating structures etc. Classification of open channel flow surface profiles as well as measurements in a laboratory-scale flume will be carried out. Thus, this unit will provide knowledge to apply hydrology and hydraulic principles to real world engineering such as storm water management, water sensitive urban design, designing of irrigation channels etc.
Examination 60%, assignments 30%, laboratory work 10%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 40% in the examination and compulsory attendance is required by all students to unit-specific activities at the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus. These unit-specific activities may be undertaken either at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester or during a single day of unit-specific activities scheduled during Week 9.
