Content

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 and 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.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve a mark of at least 50% in the combined laboratory reports.
