Course Content (Syllabus)
General Hydrology: Hydrological cycle, hydrometeorology, water balance, hydro-measurements analysis. Precipitation origin, measurements, analysis and prognosis of rain and snow, evaporization and transpiration. Underground water flow, underground hydro-carriers, permeability, soil hydraulic parameters. Runoff development, measurement and analysis of surface runoffs and water supply, hydrographs, precipitation-runoff simulations. Extreme runoff events, forecasting of flood events. Characteristics of watersheds, hydrographic networks, receivers, limnography. Methods and applications of technical hydrology. Principles and systems of environmental hydrology. General Hydraulics: Hydrostatics. Principles and equations of hydrodynamics. Open pipes and channels, flow types (steady, uniform and non-uniform, instable), weirs, hydrofalls, watersheds, branching, cross section and slope changes, flow profile, closed pipes, underground hydraulics, flow inflation, shrinkage and suppression. Lake and coastal hydraulics. Principles and systems of environmental hydraulics. Potamology: Water flow, cobble movement, formation of fluvial beds, river management works.
