For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.
It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability may impact on meeting the requirements of this subject are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and Student Equity and Disability Support: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/disability
|Subject Overview:|| |
At the conclusion of this subject students should be capable of solving a wide range of commonly encountered hydraulic problems in rivers and canals and will have acquired a user-oriented knowledge in engineering hydrology with sufficient theory to allow them to pursue further study in the field.
Topics covered include the energy momentum principles and their application to a variety of open channel flow problems: uniform flow; unsteady flow in open channels, including the long wave equations and flood propagation by diffusion and kinematic routing; steady gradually-varied flow and the numerical calculation of surface profiles; rigid-boundary and erodible channels and sediment transport in rivers and canals; measurement of discharge; risk probability in hydrology and engineering works; the hydrologic cycle; streamflow and its measurement; flood frequency analysis; estimating flood hydrographs; estimating yield; stochastic data generation; design rainfalls and the 'rational method' with particular application to urban drainage systems and their design; and groundwater, with confined and unconfined aquifers and steady and unsteady well hydraulics.
|Assessment:||One written examination of 3-hours duration at the conclusion of the subject (80%), one formal report on a one-hour long experiment (10%) in the second half of the semester and one assignment of 2000 to 3000 words in the second half of the semester (10%).|
