Properties

  • Semester hours: 1.5
  • Credits: 1.5
  • Type: UE Exercise
  • LectureTube course
  • Format: Distance Learning

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

  • set up a 1D numerical flow simulation for a river and to calibrate and validate it.
  • recherche available hydarulic and geometric data and to implement it in the model.
  • self-organise teamwork in a small group.
  • disseminate results in an oral presentation and through a written report.

The participants are sensitized to practical problems in developing flow modes and to the needs for quality control.

Subject of course

The exercise is comprised of:

  • Set-up and running a 1D flow model in steps of increasing complexity.
  • Transfer of fundamental hydraulic knowledge into a flow model.
  • Validation and critical analyses of model results.
  • Presentation and reports of model results.
  • Team work.

Additional information

The exercise takes place ONLY in the WINTER SEMESTER, as provided in the curriculum!

Important Information for absolving the KW-Übung:

The exercise will be solved self-sustained on a WINDOWS-computer, including model setup, data recherche, report and presentation writing.

HECRAS is freeware. To help you with installing and running HECRAS, a scriptum and tutorial videos will be supplied. There will be no additional lectures for the KW-Übung.

Basic knowledge in hydraulics and hydraulic engineering is required and will not be repeated within the Übung.
