The course deals with the design of hydraulic systems based on various flow regimes (laminar and turbulent). Students will learn to design pipe and network systems along with open channels. The design of various hydraulic structures such as, culverts and spillways, will be taught. Widely used software such as MWH Soft and HECRAS (US Army Corps of Engineers) will be taught and used in the class. Field studies will be conducted and students will get to experiment with various instruments used in water systems (e.g., pumps, flowmeters, diffuser, etc).
