ERT 246/4 HYDROLOGY AND WATER RESOURCES ENGINEERING
This course introduces principles of surface water hydrology and their applications in water resources engineering. These include descriptive and quantitative applications of the hydrologic cycle, weather system, precipitation, evaporation, transpiration, surface and subsurface waters, stream flow hydrographs and flood routing. The course also covers applications of hydrologic and frequency analysis with respect to basic water management design procedure with emphases on earth embankments, reservoir and flood design.
Ability to identify and solve components of hydrologic cycle and concept of watershed in the biosystems engineering.
Ability to examine and use hydrologic analyses techniques to solve problem in water budget and hydrological gain and loss.
Ability to conduct investigation and analyze and interpret hydrologic data for engineering design problem based on unit hydrograph, flood routing, frequency analysis, frequency analysis and reservoir and flood design.
Ability to evaluate and propose hydrologic simulation model for rainfall-runoff analysis and project design.
