EG40G2: CIVIL ENGINEERING HYDRAULICS (2022-2023)

Last modified: 29 May 2024 07:16


Course Overview

The course is a variant of the existing EA40JF course, to be made available onlyto students on the Graduate Apprenticeship in BEng in Civil Engineering, and forms part of the Level 4 Honours Programme.  The variation covers the same Learning Outcomes, content and assessment as the existing EA40JF course, which is being taught in the same half session as this variant.  What changes is that the delivery model is a blended model, whatever the state of Covid Lockdown.

Course Description

The course develops topics in hydraulics of interest to civil engineers.  It demonstrates the link between well-developed theoretical studies and their practical application in river, environmental, offshore and coastal engineering. 

The course begins with water wave theory with particular application to coastal and offshore engineering.  This is followed by consideration of boundary layer development over a flat plate and curved surfaces, leading to boundary layer separation and forces on immersed bodies.  These topics are also part of the EM40JJ Fluid Dynamics course. 

The second part of the course is mainly concerned with the analysis of open channel and river flows and sediment transport.  The mechanics of open channel flow are first addressed, mainly focussed on steady, rapidly and gradually varied flow problems applied to artificial and natural channels.  This is followed by consideration of fundamental aspects of sediment transport, including threshold criteria and the calculation of bed load and suspended load transport.
