Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course the students will be able to: - Understand the principles of water flow towards drains - determine the hydraulic parameters of the soils in relation to drainage. - to compute the spacing of the drains under steady and unsteady flow conditions in homogeneous and layerd soils. - to understand the basic principles of groundwater flow and properties of different types of aquifers - to identify the boundary conditions of an aquifer - to apply methods for parameter estimation of hydrogeologic parameters different types of aquifers under steady state of flow. - to deal with groundwater simulation problems involving aquifers with boundary conditions under steady state conditions - to calculate appropriate well distances and pumping rates under specified hydraulic constraints - to select materials and mascinery for the construction and maintanance of pipe and ditch drainage networks.
