Course description

Advanced Hydraulics and Hydrology

This course provides you with a detailed understanding of advanced hydraulic topics such as coastal engineering and hydraulics structures as well as advanced hydrology topics such as estimating floods, flood routing and groundwater.

This course will include:

  • coastal engineering, including wave motion, linear wave theory, wave prediction from wind records and the action of waves on beaches and coastal structures

  • hydraulic structures such as dams, weirs, flumes, spillways, energy dissipaters, control gates, discharge and outlet structures

  • how to estimate floods using FEH, index flood, growth curve and probability distributions

  • flood routing including non-storage routing, storage routing, hydraulic routing and flood routing in practice

  • groundwater and flow equations, flow nets and unconfined flow

  • groundwater recharge, numerical models in groundwater and modelling of pollutants.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • design simple coastal structures and other hydraulic structures
  • estimate floods using a variety of methods including low-flow estimation for small catchments
  • route a flood, and predict the maximum flow with time, along a given river or stream
  • appreciate the importance of groundwater
  • estimate groundwater recharge and model pollutants in groundwater.

Teaching and learning will take place using a flexible programme of lectures, workshops, seminars and tutorials.
