Short Course Description
On Monday, 14th May 2018, an additional full-day short course on basics of open channel hydraulics - given by Prof. Hubert Chanson - is offered!
The course is an introduction to the hydraulics of open channel flows. The material is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students in civil, environmental and hydraulic engineering, as well as young professionals and early-career researchers. It will be assumed that the participants have had an introductory course in fluid mechanics and that they are familiar with the basic principles of fluid mechanics: continuity, momentum, energy and Bernoulli principles.
The course will develop the basic principles of fluid mechanics with applications to open channels. Open channel flow calculations are more complicated than pipe flow calculations because the location of the free-surface is often unknown a priori (i.e. beforehand). An overview of the Workshop Program follows:
