The subject will be delivered by one of Australia's leading hydraulics consultants with a strong emphasis on projects in coastal engineering. A number of engineering projects will be selected for detailed analysis. This subject is specifically designed for those interested in hydraulics consultancy.
Background hydrodynamics theory including water surface-wave mechanics will be presented as required. Other topics covered in the discussion of specific projects will include: literal drift of sand along the coastline; the natural frequencies of harbour oscillations; and wave forces on structures. General background material relating to tsunamis generation, the origins of El Nino and the behaviour of the ocean in an enhanced "greenhouse" environment will also be discussed.
|Objectives:||Not available at this time.|
One 2-hour examination (100%) but small tests and exercises will be given during the semester to indicate student progress.
