Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course the students will be able to: 1. Understand the main principles involved during the transfer of water by closed pipes or open channels 2. Depending on the given data the students will be able to compute the discharge, the diameter of pipes or the head losses during the water flow in pipes 3. They will be able to compute the characteristics of water distribution systems 4. They will be able to compute the head and the power of pumps used for the transport of water with pipes. 5. They will be able to compute the characteristics of uniform flow in open channels. 6. They will be able to compute the characteristics of steady gradually varied and rapidly varied, non-uniform, flow in open channels.
