Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the science behind the practice of river engineering, to explain that science in practice - but with a critical sense - and add to or correct the science where it is seen to be deficient or unhelpful.

Subject of course

After a general Introduction, a review of energy and momentum will be given. The effects of obstacles and resistance in streams will be discussed. Steady uniform flow in prismatic channels as well as steady gradually-varied non-uniform flow are part of the course.
Moreover unsteady flow, flood routing and reservoir routing are explained during the lectures.
Also measurement techniques (Hydrography/Hydrometry) will be demonstrated.
Finally an important part of the course will be loose-boundary hydraulics (sediment stability and transport) and water quality.

Teaching methods

Lectures play a dominant role, as their intention is to give students an overview of an advanced subject. Where possible practical exercises will be carried out.

Mode of examination




Examination modalities

The student's performance will be evaluated in a 20-minute oral exam.
