Hours & Credits
OverviewAssumed Knowledge: CVEN1300 or equivalentThe object of CVEN2501 is to introduce students to the practice of water engineering. Topics discussed include properties of fluids, manometry, hydrostatics, the principles of mass conservation, energy conservation, the forces and momentum in flowing fluids, flow in pipes, boundary layers, dimensional analysis, physical models, flow in open channels inclusive of specific energy, Manning and Chezy equations, uniform flow, subcritical and supercritical flow, hydraulic jumps, and gradually varied flow profiles.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
