ICYA-2402 Hidráulica

Hydraulics course aims to introduce the student to the concepts of water movement mechanics in open flumes, to subsequently be able to understand the behavior of this flow in the different applications of civil and environmental engineering, particularly in relation to drinking water supply and collection and disposal of wastewater in an urban environment. Other applications are hydraulics of rivers, irrigation districts and hydraulic structures associated with dams, treatment plants and pumping stations. The topics covered in the course are: application of the conservation equations of mass, momentum and energy, learned in the course of fluid mechanics, the case of free surface flows, specific energy and specific momentum channels, uniform flow in pipes flowing partially full and natural channels artificial gradually varied flow, rapidly varied flow and its impact on hydraulic structures, design of hydraulic structures, unsteady flow in open channels.
