This course introduces the fundamental concepts of fluids and the applications of flow mechanics in civil and environmental engineering projects. Topics include open channel flow, precipitation, stormwater run-off, infiltration, groundwater, watershed drainage systems, measuring devices, buoyancy, and steady flow. Calculations and lab work involve the use of precipitation data; culvert and stormwater system design; flume and hydraulic bench experiments; and the use of current industry standard computer programs.
